Many of you do a Word of The Year, rather than New Year's Resolutions.
One simple word to focus on throughout the year.
My word this year is Dare.
Dare to be true to myself.
Dare to step out of my comfort zone.
Dare to dream bigger.
Dare to be courageous, not timid.
Dare to take risks.
The next necklace is one I'm super excited about!!
We've paired up with ICT S.O.S. - a local organization to help prevent human trafficking.
$10 from each of these sold in January will be donated to help!
What is human trafficking?
Human trafficking is modern day slavery and is the fastest growing criminal industry in the world. It is the recruitment, transportation, harboring, or taking of persons by means of threat, force, coercion, abduction, fraud, or deception for the purpose of exploiting them. The United Nations estimates that 2.5 million people are trafficked annually. It deprives people of their human rights and freedoms, it is a global health risk, and it fuels organized crime.
Victims of trafficking are forced or coerced into labor or sexual exploitation. Labor trafficking ranges from domestic servitude and small-scale labor operations to large-scale operations such as farms, sweatshops, and major multinational corporations.
Sex trafficking also happens to U.S. citizens and residents already residing within the U.S. borders. An estimated 300,000 American children are at risk for trafficking into the sex industry annually. Traffickers coerce women and children to enter the commercial sex industry through the use of a variety of recruitment and control mechanisms in strip clubs, street-based prostitution, escort services, and brothels.

Even reading the description puts a lump in my throat.
It is a very real problem and we are honored to be able to do a tiny bit to help.
So.... That's a lot of info.
2012 is a year to be inspired. Make changes. Do more. Be daring.
