EVERY TIME YOU SHOP WITH US YOU ARE SAVING A LIFE
This is a story so dear to my heart and I want to share it with you because it will explain how important it is for me to be giving back in such a way.
So please, sit back, take a deep breath and allow me to transport you to another world.
Let me start by asking; how would you feel if your freedom was taken away from you in an instant?
Imagine, just for a minute, an ordinary day just like any other day, walking the beautiful streets of Paris, laughing and talking too loudly with your friends, trying to capture the attention of the gorgeous man who’s trying to squeeze past your girl group, feeling like the luckiest girl in the world!
You’re about to start a new chapter in your life, going to college, meeting new friends, starting a new day job.
You’ve just turned 18 and everything is magical, you have your whole life in front of you...
Are you picturing it?
Now imagine another ordinary day, walking your regular route to work only to suddenly be grabbed from behind and shoved into an open van.
Before you know what’s happening you’ve been transported into a dark and lonely world.
A world of sex trafficking...
This is the story of someone very dear to me.
While I know this is confronting, I share this with you because we now have a way to help these stories become less and less of a reality.
You see, my darling friend was abducted from the streets of Paris when she was 18. The intention of her abduction was to sell her into sex trafficking.
While she had an unspeakable 12 hours in the hands of these disgusting men, she made a choice that she wanted to live and that she wanted her freedom back!
Taking a leap of faith (literally), she opened the window of the 4th floor room she was trapped in and... jumped!
Hoping to land on a nearby roof, she missed and landed on top of a small shack all the way down on ground level. And then she fell through it.
Yep. She was brave and courageous and severely injured from jumping 4 floors.
But do you know how this story has a happy ending?
Because this beautiful friend of mine stuck to her decision of taking back her freedom, she went through all the painful healing and emotional healing to help get her to where she is today…
A happy, free, loved and successful woman FILLED with ambition and drive and love for life!
So why am I telling you this confronting story with a happy ending?
Well, not too long ago I came across a very special organization call Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.). An organization of incredibly generous and brave ex marines, navy seals, secret agents and more!
These men and women are solely dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating victims of sex trafficking all while arresting and making sure those captors and perpetrators were prosecuted and taken off the streets!
This brought a happy tear to my eye.
And gave me my best light bulb moment yet!
While my friend was one of the lucky ones and able to find it within herself to grow through her horrific experience, so many women don’t have access to the kind of support necessary to make it through something like this (that’s only IF they get out alive).
That’s why I have made the decision to donate 1% of all Architects & Fairies sales to O.U.R.
Not only do they rescue women and children that have been forced into sex trafficking, they also provide a safe place for them to heal. A place that teaches them how to adapt and transition BACK into a ‘normal’ life.
Their aftercare program provides these incredible women with therapy, education, support, love and skill sets that allow them to support themselves and their families.
I am so honored that I can contribute to such an amazing organization, and now, you can be a part of this special journey too.
When you invest in any of our products, you will help me to donate more money to such an empowering and much needed organization.
So while you shop for products to support your growing business and expanding client list, you can smile and feel good about yourself know that you are saving a life by doing what you love.
And for that very reason, I want to offer you an incentive to have these donations flooding in.
I want to gift you with something special.
I want to encourage you with a token of my appreciation to stock up on some of your Architects & Fairies favorites or buy that thing that you’ve been wanting to buy but haven’t yet.
Now’s the time to save a life while growing your business!
All you need to do is.... shop with us and we’ll take care of the rest.
