Math isn’t my forte, but some things simply add up.
I’ve watched so many of my sisters in the blogging community rally their most precious resources to stand behind causes dear to their heart—and there are many worthy ones. As writers, we can use our words of support as our offering. We point others toward what God has pointed us to. But up until recently, although my heart was peaked, God hadn’t pointed it to the place He wanted it anchored.
Enter Girl Set Free.
God tapped me on the shoulder. Take a look. This is it.
At first glance, Girl Set Free caught my attention with their beautiful designs. I’ll admit I love a good t-shirt. And one that pairs comfort with a proclamation of faith is a win-win in my book. But when I dug a little deeper, I discovered a beautiful purpose behind the cute gray tee.
“It starts with fashion, but it ends with freedom, and freedom is always worth it.”
—Girl Set Free
Jeremy and Amy Kratzer are the husband and wife team behind Girl Set Free, Inc. They have translated their passion for global outreach into an artisan crafted fashion line that is empowering women to flourish in their own communities. Their ethically sourced garments are sewn by survivors of exploitation and at-risk impoverished women, who are paid free-trade wages and provided an opportunity for freedom from their life of enslavement.
What does that mean for us? It means that we are the beneficiary of not only a classic garment, but a life-altering story. Girl Set Free wants to show us, through human stories, that we can make a difference in the lives of these women.
I believe in the power of our stories. And I believe in Girl Set Free.
Those of us who know Christ, know true freedom. Doesn’t every woman deserve a chance to be a girl set free?
Jeremy and Amy have initiated a Kickstarter campaign to fund their vision. They believe wholeheartedly that God has called them to this work, and has already orchestrated the details. But we have the opportunity to come alongside them and raise the funds necessary to launch their first Spring Line.
“We believe it takes many people doing little things with great love to make a difference.”
—Amy Kratzer, Founder & Designer
Girl Set Free is a non-profit organization and 100% of their profits go back into the programs that help rescue and rehabilitate their survivors. Your contribution to this campaign will impact the lives of women who desperately need us to stand with them in freedom. And here’s the thing—this campaign is all or nothing. In order to be funded, they must reach their full goal.
“I believe in a God who can do exceedingly and abundantly more
than we could ever ask or imagine.” —Amy Kratzer, Founder & Designer
