I just want to thank Laura for the opportunity to post about Project Hazina and the amazing journey that I have been able to be a part of with the Lord! It is such an honor to be able to contribute to the site!
Last year, my husband surprised me by writing this amazing post on Missional Women in honor of all the Lord has done through my organization Project Hazina and its early days. Since our beginning when I simply fundraised money to be able to pay for blankets, pillows and mattresses for orphans, we have expanded to an online store filled with amazing jewelry, scarves and accessories that fund our dream to see every orphan in the world with a blanket and a pillow!
Project Hazina currently gives back 95% of its profits, and each purchase gives back twice. Our newly launched Freedom Line not only provides funding for blankets, pillows and mattresses, but it also pours money into a safe house in north Thailand for young girls who are at a very high risk for being trafficked in the ever-growing sex industry. Our top-selling item is our freedom bracelet which features the word "Freedom" engraved on interlocking handcuff charms that remind us to pray for the end of sex trafficking just as Jesus broke the chains in our lives and set us free. We have such a desire to see thousands of people wearing our freedom bracelets and making a difference in the lives of these women in Thailand.
Another popular item from our Freedom Line is our variety of birdcage necklaces! These beautiful necklaces symbolize freedom in a unique and fashionable way as the charm shows a bird breaking free of its cage with its wings spread wide. It is a clear representation of the very moments when we break through the bondage we often have in our lives. These necklaces are a perfect fit for our Freedom Line. We hope that many people will considering purchasing from our Freedom line this holiday season as we aim to bring hope to both women and orphans.
Since Project Hazina was formed, we have been able to provide hundreds of pillows, blankets and mattresses, but we have also begun a new venture! This Thanksgiving, we will be releasing our Hope Line with a new line of jewelry, scarves, purses and journals that are handmade in India. Not only are we going to be providing increased work for this group of artisans in India who desperately need it, but we are also teaming up with an orphanage in Uganda. The Gem Foundation is a rapidly-growing special needs orphanage in Uganda that needs custom-designed beds for the children's specific needs. Project Hazina will be providing them with these much needed beds as well as pillows, blankets, mattresses, and sheets from products in our Hope Line.
We are very excited for everything the Lord is doing through Project Hazina and we have great anticipation for what will be happening in the future! If you would like to read more about what we do, contact us or do some Christmas shopping, simply visit the Project Hazina website!
