This Saturday, December 7th, Zella Woods will be setting up shop at the Lovely Market from 12-5pm. The event is part of Virtue Women's Ministries with Harvest Church OC and marks an incredible opportunity to shop Z|W in person and help change a life. Let me explain.
Z|W will be donating 20% of ALL proceeds from Lovely Market to The Trade Foundation. This incredible organization exists to fight global sex trafficking and exploitation by teaching women how to cut and style hair. The training they provide empowers women to leave behind lives of prostitution, abuse, and extreme poverty. The social and economic impact from the skill sets these women acquire from training is absolutely life changing. In addition to hair & make-up instruction, The Trade educates women in small business practices allowing them to establish careers that provide for themselves and their families but also add significant value to their surrounding communities.
The Trade Foundation has already made tremendous impact on the lives and communities of women in Nicaragua, Brazil, Mexico, Kenya, Uganda, Costa Rica, and Cambodia. Their mission is to continue spreading the tools of empowerment across the globe to end the devastation of human trafficking and sexual slavery of women.
Education is the only lasting solution to combat the perils and poverty of helplessness. Training a woman in a trade that allows her to provide for herself, upon a foundation of dignity, and equips her to help others do the same, is the most effective and infectious way to instigate change.
Please help us support The Trade Foundation and their incredible work by shopping Z|W this Saturday at Lovely Market! For more details about The Trade and others ways you can support their efforts, visit their website at www.supportthetrade.org
