Giving Tuesday: Isaiah 58:10

WHY GIVE TO ISAIAH 58:10?

If you pour yourself out for the hungry and satisfy the desire of the afflicted, then shall your light rise in the darkness...
— Isaiah 58:10

To over 60 WorldCrafts artisan groups around the world, the fair living wage and the hope of everlasting life they receive through the WorldCrafts ministry is a light rising in the darkness.

The Isaiah 58:10 Campaign is all about pouring ourselves out for the hungry. When you give, you provide hope for WorldCrafts artisans who thought all hope was lost. You provide jobs for people all over the world. You’re giving food, clothing, and shelter to their families.

WorldCrafts is committed, holistic, and fair trade. 

The Isaiah 58:10 Campaign supports WorldCrafts by providing the funding to pay artisans a sustainable living wage and bring their products into the United States for sale. Your gift allows WorldCrafts to provide ongoing orders to global partners, many who are completely dependent on these orders for their livelihood.

#GIVINGTUESDAY

When you give, you are making a difference in the lives of artisan groups in the United States and beyond. And to make that even better: if you give starting Friday, November 24, you will also be entered to win products made by some of those very artisans you’ll be helping.

Our goal for Giving Tuesday is to raise $58,100 for the Isaiah 58:10 Campaign. It’s a huge goal, and we can’t reach it without your help.

Every gift given makes a difference, and anyone who gives a minimum of $25 will be entered to win some beautiful WorldCrafts products!

We happen to think $58.10 would make a great gift. Or maybe $581? Obviously we like this theme, but any amount you can give makes a difference.

Prizes will be awarded on the WMU Foundation social media pages (@wmufoundation on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram) on Giving Tuesday, November 28, every hour from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. CST. A grand prize bundle will be awarded at 4 p.m. CST, so don’t miss out!

Winners will be announced on social media and will receive an email notification.

Count the Cost: Support Artisans. Enable Hope.

She sat across the coffee shop table from me, eyes glistening with tears and explained, “I thought he loved me and would take care of me. And I ended up in forced prostitution because of debts he needed to pay. He would threaten me to not leave him. I ended up doing drugs to numb the pain. And then I was at rock bottom.”

She is not a statistic.

She is not a general statement of “human trafficking exists.”

She is my friend. My encourager. A hero of mine. And she is real.

Oftentimes, we desperately want to find opportunities to help others escape the human trafficking ring. We want to be able to support these people as they heal and develop life and job skills needed to move forward from that season of life. But we are at a loss as to where to begin.

Here’s one place to start:

The Isaiah 58:10 Campaign.

This week, you have the opportunity to provide an income to women who are coming out of human trafficking in the United States AND support more women who will be brought out of it around the world.

What will it cost you?

A minimum of $20 (or more if you choose to give more). That’s less than a week’s worth of Starbucks. That’s two lunches.

What will happen with my donation?

It will go to support WorldCrafts fair-trade artisans by providing funding for them to earn a sustainable living wage and to bring their products into the United States for sale. Your gift enables you to partner with WorldCrafts in providing ongoing orders to global partners, many who are completely dependent on WorldCrafts’ orders for their livelihood.

Extra Incentive:

And as a bonus, this week only (till July 28), when you give your donation online, you will receive a beautiful, soon-to-be-released WorldCrafts Lauren Bracelet made by women from The WellHouse (a ministry to women coming out of human trafficking located in Birmingham) and a New Hope Publisher’s book, Not in My Town (focusing on exposing and ending human trafficking and modern-day slavery).

A simple donation supports so much. The money you give will go toward sharing hope with artisans around the world through the ministry of WorldCrafts.

To learn more, go here. To give now, go here.

Let’s count the cost and support artisans enabling them to receive hope.

 [ The Campaign ]

From July 24-July 28, when you make an online donation of $20 or more to the Isaiah 58:10 Campaign, you will receive a WorldCrafts Lauren bracelet and New Hope Publisher’s Not in My Town.

[ The Bracelet ]

The Lauren bracelet is made by the ladies at The WellHouse in Birmingham, Alabama. This soon-to-be-released bracelet is carefully handcrafted with beautiful beadwork. We hope when you wear the bracelet, it reminds you to pray for the women who carefully made it and for all of the people who have been or are still a part of human trafficking all over the world.

[ The Book ]

The New Hope Publishers book Not in My Town focuses on exposing and ending human trafficking and modern-day slavery. The authors’ unforgettable look into the secret world of America’s modern slave trade led to a global undercover operation to rescue victims from today’s greatest form of evil.

[ Thank You ]

When you give, you are equipping artisans all over the world with the materials, products, and wages they need. Most of all, though, you are providing them with hope. When you give, you share the love of Christ with those who may not know Him, and that is priceless. Thank you for your support.
