I am sorry but where has November gone? I feel like I blinked and all of a sudden December has arrived. I have never been more glad to have 99% of my shopping completed, especially with all the lovely Shellac appointments that have been booked. There seems to be not quite enough time. Thankfully I have one more prezzie and I am done. Speaking of presents I have a gold mine for all of you and you don’t even have to leave the comfort of your house plus you are supporting oodles of good causes.
Pink Wings is a non-profit charity, all profits go to Reach out to Romania which is working with those that they have managed to save from the Sex Trafficking trade. The statistics are startling and have made my stomach churn in disgust. While we may never know some one who has been affected by this, it is going on, even in Canada. “According to the RCMP, 800 to 1200 people are trafficked in and through Canada every year.”
Their mission: “Our Vision and Passion is to offer hope and healing to children and women who have been exploited through human trafficking.
Our Mission is to fight against sex trafficking; and support those already victimized in this way. We will donate 100% net profits to Reaching Out Romania; who provides victims a safe dwelling, education, and vocational skills in a Christ centered environment.”
So on top of the amazing cause they are supporting; there is more. Each piece is inspired by one of the founder’s daughter, Brooklyn, whom passed away unexpectedly. I had a hard time keeping the tears at bay, between the story of Brooklyn and reading the stories behind the piece I was a bit of a mess. What I love about Pink Wings is that you aren’t just helping an amazing cause you are also purchasing a story when you buy a bracelet, it instantly becomes more personal.
I love supporting local and this is a great way to do so and give to charity. The bracelets are hand made with quality products and they will repair or replace any faulty piece. Their “Signature Pink Wings charms are made of genuine Swarovski crystal. Sterling silver, and platinum plating are in many of our pieces.” They also have kid bracelets and earrings and a ton more bracelets
I hope you all are having an amazing Wednesday and let me know if you purchase anything from Pink Wings, I should mention, they are also on FaceBook and have Page that you should definitely go and ‘Like’.
