Starfish Project Jewelry - And a chance to win jewelry!

Starfish Project - Jewelry for a good cause to help women escape human trafficking - more information and an online party where you can win jewelry!

Today I'm putting on my "cool mom" hat (I think maybe it was hidden at the bottom of a diaper bag... in the back of my closet...) and introducing you to a company you probably haven't heard of before - Starfish Project Jewelry.

I became an advocate of hope for Starfish Project early in 2017 because I love the jewelry and the mission behind the company!

If you are looking for a gift for someone in your life or jewelry for yourself that has a purpose, Starfish Project has some amazing pieces made by women in Asia who have left trafficking situations. The jewelry comes wrapped in a ready-to-give black bag with a cute story card, and everything is shipped in the US with 2-day shipping! So, it's a perfect go-to for last minute gifts!

Starfish Project is an organization that cares for women escaping human trafficking and exploitation in Asia. They provide life-changing opportunities through Holistic Care Programs and innovative social enterprise where women create beautiful jewelry, but also become managers, accountants, graphic designers, and photographers.

(If you've read my Disclosures page, you know running a blog has expenses, so please note that this post does contain affiliate links.)

    Here are just a few of my favorite pieces available now but you can see many more on their site by clicking here.

    I think the partnership fits very naturally with my blog because:

    1. As Christians, we should be seeking justice for those who are made in the image of God. You can read lots more about Starfish Project here but every piece is made by a woman emerging from exploitation and comes with the story of a woman whose life was changed. The more I learn about the company and interact with the staff, the more I am truly impressed. You can always tell each person is working hard to change people's lives. It's heart-breaking and inspiring at the same time.
    2. I think that self-care is so important for moms to avoid burn-out. Sometimes just getting dressed {all the way - including jewelry} and feeling better about yourself can be such a mood booster. 
    3. I have loved doing giveaways on my blog and I thought jewelry for you would be super fun!

    By purchasing jewelry or having an online party, you not only give back to these women (read their stories here) but also help by raising awareness about the brand. More people knowing about the jewelry means more jewelry will need to be made, which means Starfish Project can employ more women!

    That's why I became an advocate - I have been wearing the jewelry for over a year, always get compliments on it (when I remember to accessorize), and wish more people knew about it so they could do more! There are less than 100 advocates and they are not an MLM company (so no tiers, asking you to sign up, etc.). Everyone I have met online or have heard from (they have lots of videos because the founder actually lives in Asia with her family) that works for Starfish has been so sweet. After I receive orders, I often get hand-written post cards thanking me for my order. These are people trying to build their brand and help more women.

    You can learn a lot more about Starfish Project Jewelry by visiting their site here and clicking around there. 

    What can you do to help?!

    (While maybe get some future gifts ready? Or buying something great for yourself?)

    Attend a no-pressure ONLINE-ONLY party!

    I thought it would be fun to try out an ONLINE party since I've never done one before! I'll be hosting one on Facebook from June 27 to July 1 (at midnight Pacific time) so you'll have plenty of time to check in when it's convenient, learn more, see pics (even of me and my daughter!) in the jewelry, and enter to win prizes! Click here to RSVP that you'll be there to see more information!

    I'm not about pressuring you to buy things - I'm more like throw something out there (Facebook party with lots of info {and games} - if you want to read and participate) and then walking away. For real. So feel free to RSVP without feeling ANY obligation

    BUT... I thought it would also be super fun to have my first party be full of some great giveaways (because, you know - if you were coming to my house, I'd have wine and cookies... but then, it's harder to do that whole walking away thing...) so I'll be giving away some amazing summer-ready statement pieces:

    So at least three winners! If the party happens to grow, I'd love to give out even more!

    Ladies, my blog is super small compared to most you read, so your chances of winning are HIGH (in caps... on purpose!).

    Just click here to RSVP to make sure you can get in on winning some of those amazing prizes! 

    Let me know if you have any questions!
