If you could use a simple daily decision, something you do everyday, to fight for justice in our world...would you do it?
I'm guessing you answered "yes," right? Who wouldn't when it is truly that simple?
Our God is so terrifically creative that He has inspired people to create and use fashion and jewelry for His glory. Even more stunning, they also can be utilized to fight injustice across the globe! The scope of God even stretches into fashion--isn't He surprisingly dynamic?
Did you know there are 27 million slaves around the world? Many of them women; young, old, mothers, daughters...enslaved against their will for labor, most likely prostitution, or other atrocities. Unpleasant as it is, God is not one to turn from the ugly in our world. He instead shares His tender heart for his daughters and petitions us to take action too.
Learn to do good; seek justice, correct oppression; bring justice to the fatherless, plead the widow's cause. Isaiah 1:17
How can you use a simple, daily decision to make a difference?
It's simple! Wear jewelry! You wear jewelry don't you? Or know someone who does? When you get ready for the day and accessorize, you could be doing so with fashionable, meaningful pieces that have eternal and present impact.
3 Strands, a phenomenal justice-loving organization, is partnering with Missional Women to help you use an everyday decision like fashion for the beautiful cause of justice and, more importantly, for God's glory.
Check out this video explaining the significance of the bracelets.

3 Strands fights against human trafficking alongside Agape International by opening up training centers for women and girls rescued from the sex trafficking industry to create handmade bracelets. I love this wisdom from their website:
"Girls rescued from sex trafficking need well paying, sustainable jobs so they can reintegrate back into their community with honor and dignity." -3 Strands
3 Strands helps train and equip rescued women to make these GORGEOUS, unique bracelets and ensures the women are cared for, receive healthy meals, education, a fair wage, and gently encourages them back into society as valuable, worthy contributors.
