Spring is bringing lots of excitement here at Made for Freedom! We're gearing up for our Fashion Revolution Celebration on April 21st, and we're also in the process of getting in new product.
So, you all remember that Dawn and Tara spent several weeks of January visiting restoration centers in Asia, right? They were able to meet with people who work to provide job skills and dignified employment for the marginalized women and survivors of sex trafficking as they make products we will order.
Aside from that trip, we've also been talking to other centers about making product for us as well, some outside of Asia.
Our newest shipment is from ABAN in Ghana. They are making these beautiful drawstring bags with our signature hummingbird design.
Aren't they beautiful? We've got other colors, too, all equally gorgeous. This will be a part of our Creabeli line, products made specifically for Made for Freedom in our partner restorative centers. ABAN exists to empower homeless young women in Accra who, without their job at ABAN would be vulnerable to prostitute themselves or beg for a living. The organization is seeing lives transformed through dignified employment.
From Ruhamah Designs in India, we're getting jewelry like these "Opal Ocean" earrings. We're excited to offer these beautiful designs that empower!

In addition to jewelry from Ruhamah, we'll be sourcing jewelry from Eden Ministry, a restorative ministry in Asia that seeks to "reach, rescue, and restore" victims of sex trafficking.
We'll be carrying these beautiful "vintage earrings," among other pieces.
These products aren't available to buy online yet, but you'll be able to purchase any of them at our Fashion Revolution Celebration on April 21st, from 5:00-9:00pm at TechArtista in St. Louis, MO. It'll be an evening of dignity, fashion, and fun!
Not in the St. Louis area? No worries - these products will be available online soon after that.
We're so excited to be partnering with ABAN and to carry Ruhamah and Eden designs. What else is coming up from Made for Freedom? More new products! We'll keep letting you know as we establish new partnerships and broaden our product line!
