If you have been around this blog for any length of time you know that I am a Christian and hold my relationship with Christ very close. I also am a HUGE accessory lover. So you better believe that I was thrilled to be able to combine my love of both.
Allow me to introduce you to an incredible company called Bought Beautifully. This is an online store where you can purchase products from vendors all over the world who are creating products that create opportunity for others. The site was started as a way for us all to use our finances as a way to further God's kingdom - by supporting quality products that are created in an atmosphere of love.
I have to tell you there are way too many items in my house that I purchased because I got a good deal on them or because I just liked them. I don't know the history behind them and I have no clue what kind of conditions the workers deal with as they make everything. But when I stop to think about the type of conditions that could exist, it really makes me sad. So I love that Bought Beautifully was designed to build and support a Christ Centered Economy, where people receive fair wages and work in conditions that enable them to develop their artistic spirit, individuality, and creativity.
There is so much more available than just accessories; Bought Beautifully also offers art, home decor, clothing and beauty products. Here are just a few products that are available on Bought Beautifully that I wanted to share with you.
Peruvian Messenger Bag/Ipad Case from Threads of Hope
The bag is gorgeous! I love the bright colors and attention to detail that went into crafting this item. There is an inside pocket and a back zipper pocket, plus a long strap making this a great purse or ipad case. I catch myself just staring at the bag because the colors are so beautiful. And I love that Threads of Hope has a tagline that says "empowering impoverished women, transforming lives." They offer fair and consistent income to their artisans and use 100% of their profits to break the cycle of poverty through grants available to their artisans.
Single Wrap Majok Bracelet from Haiti's Jewels
Rose Embroidered Card from HAPI
The thing I love most about all of the products featured on Bought Beautifully is that with your purchase you are supporting impoverished artisans. Knowing that your money is going to a good and worthy cause is a beautiful thing. These organizations exist to teach responsibility and to offer opportunity, all while spreading the love of Jesus.
