Giveaway: Shop to Stop Slavery

Some times my giveaways are fun things for the family. Some times they are useful things for the kitchen. And some times, I have the privilege of giving away something that is so meaningful every life touched by it will be moved.

Today, I have the blessing of sharing Shop To Stop Slavery with you. It was started by Robin, a MOPS mom, who knew there had to be a better way to give lovely gifts to our friends and family, a way that didn't rely on slave labor. So, she opened Shop to Stop Slavery and now connects people all over the world with fair trade vendors through mutually beneficial purchases.

When I met Robin in person, her passion for helping the impoverished and victims of human trafficking was clear. She is incredibly knowledgeable about the realities of forced labor around the world. Robin told me that she designed her store to be "the online resource to buy slave free products and abolish slavery through socially responsible shopping."

As you consider the gifts you will purchase for Christmas this year, please visit Shop to Stop Slavery and browse their diverse collection of apparel, jewelry, shoes, beauty products, food, and even sporting goods.

To encourage you to learn more about Robin's company, she has offered this limited edition, Gebo Mana, organic t-shirt (size L) to one of the readers of Family Musings. Here's how to enter:

FTC Disclosure: I received no consideration for this post and am sharing Shop to Stop Slavery with you because I agree with their purpose and want to be part of abolishing modern day slavery.
