Giveaway with a Heart

This giveaway is very close to my heart.  If you have read some of my posts, especially What's Your Beef?, you know that human trafficking and child prostitution are really huge issues for me that I would stop if I could!  

Well, I have found an amazing organization called NightLight International that rescues girls in and at risk of trafficking and prostitution in Thailand.  They also give them jobs to help them earn money and learn a different lifestyle.  And, guess what they do?  Make jewelry!  Actually, they have a business and teach the girls all different aspects.  Some learn to design jewelry, and some make it, and some learn the business side of it.  I love this idea, because they are not only doing something to help the girls get out of terrible situations, but they help them stay out, which is so effective!

I wanted to share this with all of you, because the jewelry is so great and the cause is so worthy.  I thought, what better way than to give away something to spread the word?

I'll be sending the winner some....
Beautiful Earrings
The winner can choose between these two:

Black and Jewel Toned Pearl Earrings

Please spread the word!  What a great opportunity to support these girls!

I will choose a winner:

  1. Hi Sarah Ann! I found your blog by way of Jen's at Unedited. So glad I did! The reality of human trafficking is frightening and hard for me to wrap my brain around, so far removed am I from such a threat. People like you who keep awareness high are instrumental in bringing about change and ending such atrocities. Bravo!

    I'm going to promote this contest on my blog at http://nicoleducleroir.blogspot.com.

    I'm unable to view either image of the earrings, but I'm sure both are beautiful so you can put me in either drawing :))

    Glad to be your new follower, and I look forward to reading more from you! In the meantime, best of luck with your project!

  23. Hi Sarah,

    I'm going to tell our pastor's wife about this, because she also has such a heart for this. South Bay recently gave money to a house here in San Francisco called the Freedom House. It's a house that supports women who are freed from slavery/sex trafficking in order to get them back on there feet.

    Oh, and I already follow your blog :), and I like the black and jewel tone pearl earrings.

  24. and I have to say that I think my favorite piece on the website is actually the same earrings that you have on here (black and jewel tone earrings!) :)

    what an awesome giveaway

  25. This is an amazing cause to be promoting! I love that they teach them different aspects of the business other than just creating.

    I like the multi tonal pink and cream pearl earrings! So pretty.

  26. & I love the turquoise necklace on their website :)

    (I also really like the bracelet they have on the main page, but couldn't find it in the bracelet section!)

  27. i'm tweeting you now! This is so awesome, Sarah :) It is so great to see, even amid the darkness in this world (like the problem you're trying to raise awareness about), God can use His people to shine light! It is really a blessing to see!

  30. I love the green stone bracelet via NightLight's Store-Simply Gorgeous...


    (that email goes with my other entries as well)

  31. Sarah, thank you so much for letting me know of your blog. I share so many of your convictions. I have also done mission work in Mexico and support a children's home there. Child prostitution and human trafficking is something that I don't understand why it doesn't get more attention and help. It even infuriated me that a movie was done on the subject (Taken)...it's not entertainment - it's for real. We're not called to hear about it and walk away shaking our heads saying "how sad". We're called to be our brother's keeper!
    Love your heart and love your blog! I am definitely going to be a new follower!

  32. This is so awesome, I love organizations that help this cause. My social club (like a sorority for a private university) is involved with a organization similar to NightLight International. It's called She Dances.

    Oh yeah, I'm a follower, I tweeted, and I'm blogging about it too!

  33. Im not entering cause Im new and think that its kinda rude to enter first hand, when adding,b ut im a new follower :)

  34. I'm a follower and I like the first pair! Thanks for the heads up on your giveaway!


  35. & You saw the blog post about it :)

    I really hope it brings awareness to some people about this cause. I think it's just amazing & it won't be forgotten after this giveaway is over. Love it!
