International Princess Project.

For my last entry in
Gifts that Give Back
I want to highlight this adorable pajama company...

 Punjammies by
International Princess Project

Here is their story:

Each Punjammie™ is created in an after-care facility for women who have been rescued, released or escaped from a life of forced prostitution. Their lives have been marked by a message - you are a commodity - to be used for other's gain.

Whether sold by her own family, trafficked from another country or driven by desperation, she was a slave to this life. Each story is as unique as each girl.

When one manages to escaped from this life of horror, she has few options where to turn. Aside from the emotional and psychological trauma, women formerly working as prostitutes cannot easily enter schools, return to family systems or secure jobs to support themselves in India. A high quality after-care center is one of the best options a woman has at rebuilding her life.

Holistic aftercare involves quality medical care, emotional safety, education and the tools to create a new way of life for herself.

Empowering each woman with an opportunity to learn a marketable skill and become a part of a viable business is the purpose of Punjammies™. In providing for her basic need to support herself, she sees that she has value far beyond what the lies have told her. She begins to see her rightful place of value - a princess.

Every Punjammie™ purchase creates
A fair trade wage
Deposit into a savings account
Financial support for holistic care
Capacity building for more women to enter the after-care center

Every Punjammies™ tells the story of a girl who was once voiceless. You can be a part of re-building lives shattered by modern day slavery.

Wear Punjammies™. Wear hope

They make the CUTEST pajama pants EVER!

And they also sell organic cotton t-shirts to match!

What did you guys think of Gifts that Give Back?
Should I continue to highlight companies that use their business as a means for charity as I find them?
I could create a link to all of these somewhere on my blog where they could be easily accessed.
What do you think?
This is the heart of Better Life Bags - to use our wealth to give back.
I don't mind if this takes away some of my business... as long as people are being helped in real meaningful ways.
Tell me your thoughts on the series...
