Global Giving Day-She is Priceless

“She Is Priceless” is a campaign to make a difference in the lives of oppressed women.

A pearl is a healed wound.  An oyster protects itself from irritation and suffering and the result is a priceless pearl.  The women we support have endured unthinkable suffering in their lives and often feel forgotten.  We are joining together to remind the world that every woman matters.

She is priceless.

Here’s how it works:
Choose an organization from the list below
Click learn more and donate to the cause of your choice
Grab a free image to share on social media or take a “selfless selfie” with your favorite pair of pearl jewelry and use the hashtag #putonyourpearls

Join me tomorrow as I put on my pearls and share the She Is Priceless Campaign.  I would love for you to share the link to your post in the comments below.

The goal for Beauty for Ashes Uganda is to empower women (especially single mamas and widows) to reach long-term sustainability for their families. We help these mothers to join a cooperative, which works both as a small group for support and encouragement as well as a resource to help them work together towards sustainability. With the understanding that long-term sustainability is a long-term solution, we also offer short term aid that is thoughtful and helpful without creating systems of dependence. 

Freedom Firm seeks to eliminate child prostitution in India by providing rescue, restoration, and justice for victims of sex trafficking. We accomplish this by identifying victims and perpetrators of sex trafficking, mobilizing law enforcement agencies to rescue victims and arrest perpetrators, assisting the legal system during prosecution, and enabling rescued girls to engage in effective rehabilitation. We believe we can accomplish this vision with such excellence that eventually there will be no need for Freedom Firm.

 JoyCorps partners with entrepreneurs in the developing world to build strong businesses and healthy, thriving communities. Our dream is that people in the underdeveloped world experience the joy of wholeness. To this end, we aim to bring holistic change by giving people the chance to work with dignity, to have healthy minds and bodies, and to live in thriving communities.

 Korah is a community that sits on the outskirts of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia next to the Koshe garbage dump. The population of this once small community of lepers, has swelled to more than 100,000 people. Many lepers, HIV/AIDS patients, orphans and widows struggle to survive in this community. Caring for Korah is a ministry that exists to love and serve the poor in Korah Ethiopia. In an area consumed with poverty and hopelessness our prayer is for the people of Korah to find their value in Christ, not their circumstances.

Mercy House Global exists to engage, empower and disciple women around the globe in Jesus’ name. MHG funds two residential maternity homes in Kenya for “at risk” pregnant teens.  MHG also supports 41 nonprofits in 25 countries by helping these organizations sell products that employ women artisans through Fair Trade Friday
