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

    i dream i was at a concert at my school and some people who didn’t like me was trying to make fun of me, but i try my best not to react. i went to catch a bus to go home, the bus drop me off short so i had to walk the rest. when i started walking the road was nice and smooth, as i continued the road became muddy and a whole bunch of horses appeared. they were all muddy, but space out. i was afraid to pass, but since they were spaced out, i try to put my fear behind me and passed them one by one. but the road was really terrible. even though i was safe when i reached home, i still had that fear because i knew the horses were still outside. but instead of me reaching home, i was at work. i woke up after realising that i never reached home but was at work.
