When we think of the word 'hope' what comes to mind?
I hope I can pay that bill this week
I hope my kids are okay
I hope I don't over sleep
I hope I don't have to work late
I hope this Water is okay that we are drinking
I hope I can provide for my family
I hope I can make it through this week/month/day

What if you could be someone else's Hope...
Hope for a brighter future
Hope to offer their children an education
Hope to provide Food, Fresh Water and shelter
Things we often take for granted...

What if you could help someone change their LIFE, show them that their life has meaning, that they are valued and important. What if you could Empower Women out of poverty, the slums, sex trafficking and desperate situations?

That is what I am doing with Trades of Hope. If you haven't heard of Trades of Hope, here is a little back ground information:
Each woman has a story, and with Trades of Hope's help, their story has changed from pain and struggle to a story of HOPE! Trades of Hope work with the artisans themselves and organizations that are helping women in difficult circumstances. We are helping by marketing their products through the home party model, so they can put food on their table, a roof over their head, get medical care and an education for their children. We want to tell their stories to the world!

And here is some of my Story: I had been seeking a praying for an opportunity – something purposeful where I could help other women and contribute to my own household as well. I really wanted a way that I could make a difference in other womens' lives.

I saw a post on FB about Trades of Hope, yet I wasn't sure it was for me. It continued to show up in my life and I began reading and praying about all the things that Trades of Hope is doing all around the world and even here in the US. I found a CE here in my state and I went to her Trunk Party and I joined up.

I am excited to be a part of helping other women, families and communities to achieve the things we take most for granted here, like clean water, food, shelter, medical care and education for their children.

Trades of Hope gives me the pleasure of directly impacting the lives of women and children around the globe by selling their products and it is a practical way to give back in a meaningful way. These women don't just want a hand out, they want a hand up.

Weather you Host a party, Join our team or just Shop. You Are making a difference in the lives of each artisan, their families and communities-- wont you join me on this Journey?


I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples' --Mother Teresa
