"Our 2-year residential program, based in Nashville, Tennessee, provides housing, food, healthcare, therapy and education, without charging residents. We saw that women survivors were making great strides in their recovery but still had trouble getting a job due to arrest records or gaps in their resume because they were living on the streets. So we started a social enterprise where they could make and sell natural bath and body products. Now they can earn a living wage and have a path toward financial independence."

What We Believe
Where We Work
“Every single one of our products are handmade by local artists in Athens, Ga. Each ceramic candle is carefully thrown, trimmed, and glazed to create a unique piece. From the containers we use for our candles down to our business cards we strive to do everything with purpose to have a positive social and environmental impact.”
“The art of craftsmanship through our social enterprise, PURPOSE, paired with holistic care through our program, International Sanctuary, ensures that every woman gains hope, dignity and freedom for the future. Since 2007, we have worked to ensure girls and women escaping from human trafficking have a safe, loving community where they belong. It is a place where they can heal from the horrors they've experienced, learn to trust other people, and grow into who they were created to be.”
“MudLOVE is a for-profit business built on the idea of giving back. From the very beginning, we have worked closely with our nonprofit partner, Water for Good to provide safe, clean water to the people of the Central African Republic. Today, the purchase of each MudLOVE product provides 1 week of clean water to someone in the C.A.R.”
memobottle™ aims to challenge how we as a society think about water consumption, and to educate about the environmental costs of our modern conveniences. Every memobottle™ sold provides one person with two months' access to clean water.
“Jelt was established as a social enterprise. The company’s commitment to social responsibility starts with working with organizations that support veterans, youth and the environment. In fact, when you buy a belt, Jelt will donate to organizations supporting these causes.”

Over 1,500 women work each night in the red lighter district of Patpong. The majority of these women come from villages in the north; leaving home to find work that will support their families.
Rehab Ministries is situated in the heart of Patpong and has been a light amongst the darkness for over 27 years. They offer an opportunity for the women to trade a life of prostitution for employment in either jewelry or toy making. They will also be able to learn English; giving them a valuable skill set to seek out further opportunities.
Your purchase with a purpose allows us to financially support Rahab Ministries.
