Prostitution and Sex-Trafficking

Two issues that have always been close to my heart. Even though I've never personally known anyone who've had experiences with either of those issues, for some reason I've always really felt for those women and girls. I've read horror stories about girls who've been victims of those things, and it just kills me. I can barely even wrap my mind around it.

So when I got an email from Stephanie of Sabbe Interior Design asking for a favor, I was delighted to help!

Stephanie had the wonderful idea to do something for the girls of the Kim's Project organization (a local organization who helps women out of prostitution and sex-trafficking) this Christmas. She's asking for all of us crafty ladies to help her by making some fun bags and sending them to her so that she can drop them off at the shelter. (More info here!)

Here's one that I made for her today (out of T-shirts!), and I'm hoping to make more!

She would like to drop the bags off at the shelter before the 25th, so it doesn't leave tons of time... and I know we're all busy at this time of year, but things like this really are more important than Christmas shopping and decorating anyway, aren't they?

So if you have the ability, I'd love it if we could all help her out with this special idea!
Pretty please? :o)

  3. I just so happen to have a few (3 or 4) Amy Butler Birdie Sling purses (the smaller version) laying around.......let me know if you'd like to see them and where I can send them to. I have a SEVERE purse making addiction so I can whip them up pretty quickly. :)
