The month of January is a focused time to build awareness of human trafficking and fight against this evil. During the month of January, help us donate to Hope Against Trafficking for Southeast Michigan! You can purchase a cute Giving Bag from us this month for $5.99, and we will donate 50% of the profit from the sale of the bag to Hope Against Trafficking.
Additionally, we're donating 10% of the profit of every piece of USA made Mend on the Move jewelry that we sell during January. This non-profit social enterprise employs women who have survived abuse. Creating jewelry empowers them by providing financial independence and opportunity. With one purchase, you have the opportunity to support survivors who are helped by these two organizations.
Mend on the Move's Made in Michigan jewelry has a minimalistic look with a touch of edge. The materials also have a fun story! The jewelry is made in Detroit from salvaged and donated auto parts and car seat leather. This brand is also great for anyone who appreciates upcycled jewelry. Of course, it's also great for anyone who loves the Motor City!
And if you care about Detroit, you'll also appreciated that Hope Against Trafficking provides a 24-month residential program in metro-Detroit organization. It supplies housing to women who have survived sex and labor trafficking. Besides offering a safe place to live, this program also provides comprehensive services focused on physical, mental, emotional and economic transformation. This program is modeled after the successful Magdalene/Thistle Farms model in Nashville, which has an astounding success rate. (About 3/4 of participants are drug-free and pursuing education and employment two years after making it through the first six months of the Magdalene/Thistle Farms program.) Help us make our city, state, and world a better place by supporting this needed organization. You can also donate directly to Hope Against Trafficking here.
We are also donating 10% of the profit from the sale of Anju Jewelry (only available in-store) during the month of January to Hope Against Trafficking. Furthermore, Tenacity Boutique, The Clothing Cove's casual sister store, donates proceeds from every Tenacity purchase to local organizations that assist those affected by human trafficking though Michigan. To shop Tenacity online, visit TheClothingCove.com, hover over "Shop Brands" on the main menu, then hover over "Tenacity Brands" in the drop down menu.
