Today I want to share with you a ministry that I have recently become a part of called the Fair Trade Friday Earring of the Month club. Fair Trade Friday is a ministry of Mercy House Kenya. Mercy House exists to engage, empower and disciple women around the globe in Jesus’ name, engage those with resources to say yes to the plight of women in poverty, empower women and teenage mothers around the world through partnerships and sustainable fair trade product development, and disciple women to be lifelong followers of Jesus Christ. The Earring of the Month Club is a monthly subscription service that sends you fair trade, handmade earrings to you every month. The earrings are bought by Mercy House from impoverished women who use their earnings to support their family and break the cycle of poverty. Empowering vulnerable women and children and supporting companies that do this by providing stylish, fair trade accessories and clothing is something that is very important to me so Fair Trade Friday is a ministry that I support 100%.
This month’s earrings are from Timbali Crafts, a company run by a group of women in Swaziland. The women who create Timbali Crafts help to feed more than 3000 orphans and vulnerable childen each day at feeding centers in their rural communities.
I think the earrings this month are very stylish and I love that they have a story and a purpose.

Have a great day!
