The Next Big Thing is Here!

Beauty for Ashes 7In July we hosted a silent auction to benefit AIM – Agape International Missions.

Five girls, learning to sew five bags in five days from only the remnants of our abundant American life. Five lives stitching together something even more beautiful than they ever imagined:

A benefit auction that raised over $700 for girls in Cambodia suffocating in the stifling reality of a sex-trafficked life!

 So we did it again in August, only this time we:

Raised over $1000 for AIM!

That’s $1000 for girls like Ya, and Mien, and Mi who struggle to find the strength through another day of pandering pedophiles, sexual exploitation, and abject poverty. And now it’s time to get you involved. Yes! I said YOU.

We’re hosting our first ever
