Purchases with a Purpose

I once heard a sermon where the pastor said if you want to know where a persons heart and passion lie, look to where they spend their money.  Needless to say that has stuck with me.  As a faith based business we are always looking for ways not just to help people grow their business but to help them have better lives.  At the beginning of this year we added a new custom gift line to our offering called Trades of Hope.  This organization is unique in the marketplace as each purchase helps an impoverished woman somewhere in this world.  We have been talking about this organization on our facebook page since January 1 but today I was sent a Thank You video from Katie Davis who wrote the book Kisses from Katie.  I had the pleasure of reading this story of this young woman’s remarkable journey into Uganda and the hearts of the people there.  Hers is one of the many missions that Trades of Hope buys from at a fair trade rate, normally six times what the woman would receive if they tried to sell their craft locally.  Katie’s story touched my heart, I hope it touches yours!  Her missions product can be purchased direct from our Trades of Hope Compassion Gift Link on our website

 

Decorated MicroFiber or Soft Shell Jackets

It is still summer here in Minnesota but already we are working on fall jackets!  The microfiber or softshell jacket is by far the most popular option.  They come in a variety of styles and colors and oftentimes offer both a mens and ladies version.  We have several clients who are using these jackets for their “Awards” Jacket for their summertime sport.  Racing, Horse, Rodeo, 4H and Ball Sports to name a few.  They also make a GREAT! corporate gift either for your own staff to unify your brand or for your top tier of clients.

We wanted to highlight one client in particular who took the decorating process to the extreme which is really fun to do and maximizes the advertising potential for the client.  The jacket below has embroidery, rhinestones, applique and metallic embroidery.  The ladies look awesome in them don’t you agree!  They are a show stopper!
