We have our first donations!
In addition to our hand-made goods, several lovely Etsy shops will also help combat captivity with creativity this November at our 1st Beauty for Ashes Craft Fair.

Jenni @ Jenni B Jeweled donated this hand-stamped, leather bracelet
AND is currently offering an additional 20% donation to AIM on anything in her store until Nov 22nd. Just mention the Beauty for Ashes Craft Fair in your comments upon ordering from her Etsy shop.
Robyn @ Faith Miners Daughter donated not 1, but 2 original art prints out of her Take heART Gallery!
This one is appropriately named Beauty for Ashes:While this one entitled I Matter, Freedom for the Prisoners arose from Robyn’s heart to specifically fight sex trafficking in Cambodia!! She even used scrap remnants from her home in the collage! How perfectly providential is that??
My heart was so moved after watching the horrible conditions and affliction of these girls that I painted her to say “I Matter” – a visible plea of their suffering and call to action.- Robyn Terry
Ema @ Beauty from Ashes Boutique donated two of these note cards, hand-made by orphaned ladies in Romania.
And Solomon @ Solomon Song donated two original scarves.
Each piece is an individual creation within a specific theme and style. This theme? You guessed it: Beauty for Ashes
And this theme? Grace.
I just love how it represents the entire purpose behind this fair – combating a black and white issue (slavery) through girls’ hearts of flesh and hands of hope.
I love, love this cause. It is the purpose behind my designs, so thank you! – Solomon Rain
