FaithBox : Get to know what’s inside #FaithBox #monthlysubscription #AllinGoodFaith

WahmReviewer :Kathy L. Crow
I received this product for free in exchange for this honest review.

Faithbox is an organization that will send a box out monthly with unique daily devotionals to strengthen faith along with fine curated products from companies with Christian ideals. The box I received held several small items along with a 30 day devotional book that had space for notes or journaling.

FaithBox Goodies

There was a stocking cap from Krochet Kids Peru that was handmade and signed by the person who made it.

There was a small chocolate bar from “ilmorso” that was flavored “coffee and Cream” (Yummmm!) Conscious ink manifestations tattoos and FaithBox sent a tattoo that reads “I AM GRACE”. Each word selected is selected to support the faith journey.

There was also a pamphlet about the companies involved and how they each contribute to giving and showing LOVE. The point is to make an IMPACT in the world. The real benefit is that each box sold provides three meals to hungry kids.

Goods That Give FaithBox
This project is quite impressive. The whole process is very ingenious in that marketing is being done for a variety of different companies at a minimum expense for the companies. When you purchase one of the boxes you are provided with samples of those products.

Whats inside FaithBox.

Our souls are being fed and feeling joyful at providing something for hungry kids, with each box that is shipped it will provide three meals to hungry kids at Christian orphanages through their partnership with RiceBowls.org .The companies represented in each Faithbox have also done an incredible amount of good since many have give back programs or support their own philanthropies.  It is a WIN/WIN situation and all done with the same ideals in mind. It truly speaks of the Christian spirit. Well done!

Trades of Hope ~ LoriAnn #fairtrade #ethicalstyle #ethicalbusiness

WAHMReviewer – Laura

 

A while back, I came across a wonderful company called “Trades of Hope.” The first thing that drew me to them was all of the cool items they had. Items I’d never seen before ranging from purses and jewelry to home décor. Once I heard the backstory, I was sold!

 

“Trades of Hope” sells Fair Trade products made by women need around the world. By doing this, Trades of Hope offers women a way out of some pretty dangerous situations. All over the world, women work in terrible conditions in sweatshops and are even victimized in the sex trade. They do all of this just too barely get by and feed their families. These women are mothers, daughters and sisters.

 

Trades of Hope” has offered them freedom from these horrible conditions by giving them an opportunity, not a hand out. These women now have a readily available way to market their hand made goods to the world. In the product line, you can find items from women in Bangladesh, Haiti, Nepal, the Philippines and many more places. All in all, “Trades of Hope” works with 15 different artisan groups that cover 4 continents!

 

Now that you know about the company, I’ll tell you a bit about the products. I found my products through Lori Ann. You can find her at http://www.mytradesofhope.com/loriann. For this review, Lori Ann sent me the Butterfly Bird Feeder. I love it! Just look at it hanging there! It’s beautifully crafted and perfect for any bird lover.

With each product, you can find information on the artisan group that made it. What a wonderful way to connect with women around the world. Each item has a personal touch. Each item means one more meal for a mother’s children, one more day that daughter doesn’t have to work in a sweatshop. You can help these women and fill your home with beautiful products at the same time! It’s a win/win in my book!
