Charity of the Month | Free the Slaves
by Sica Schmitz | Posted on July 01 2017
Each month we give back to a different cause or charity that is bettering the world, and this month we are excited to support our Charity on the Month Free the Slaves in two different ways. Along with giving back a potion of each purchase to help this remarkable anti-trafficking non-profit, we are also hosting our 3rd Annual Fair Trade Fashion Show Fundraiser to directly benefit them.
Since 2000, Free the Slaves has helped awaken the world to the fact that slavery still exists, why it does, and where it’s worst. They've developed a global blueprint for change to inform governments, international institutions, faith communities, businesses, and the public what they can do and currently work directly in six countries: India, Nepal, Ghana, Senegal, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Haiti.
I spoke to Allie Gardner, the Special Project Manager at Free the Slaves about modern slavery, fair trade fashion, and how to stay fueled as an activist.
