I love our Vendors

Greta Coalier (http://gremadcha.etsy.comis amazingly creative.  I have blogged about her before, I hope you had the chance to read it.  She is young, creative, and she and her husband happen to be in that special place of diapers, Dora, and deprived sleep.  As I visited with her yesterday, I was taken back to my young mothering days, when you just yearn for ONE full night sleep.  A vacation is having someone watch the kids for a night, and going to a hotel in town and sleeping in until 8!  Oh- that happened once in my 20 years of being a mother to small children~but I digress, this post is not about my young mothering days, maybe a future time!

Faith that Works has the privilege of working with incredibly unique and creative women.  Our first Shop for a Cause taught us a valuable lesson, women love to shop!  Women also enjoy buying things that are good for their health, and good for their spirit.  Shop for a Cause has a joyful atmosphere, both for our vendors and shoppers.  We have decided to try and spread that joy throughout the year.   Faith that Works is in the process of developing an on-line shopping sight for you to enjoy.  We hope to have this up within a month.  This sight will feature exclusive designs our vendors create especially for us,  and donated  speciality items.   We also plan to sell our soda tab bracelets on this sight as well.  In the mean time; I just could not wait to unveil our first exclusive design by Greta!

This design symbolizes the girls we fight for everyday in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.  They are made with Ethiopian beads,  waxed linen, and include a tiny silver stamped cross pendant.  They are delicate and look fabulous when you wear two or three at a time!   To purchase right away, contact Terri @  We will let you know when our on-line store is ready!

Proceeds from this sale will go to help rescue a young woman from the horrors of her life in the red light district of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.  Maybe a girl like Eled, who, in three short years, went from hopeless victim of sexual slavery to having a career as a nurse!  May this product be a close reminder to you of the girls still trapped in the glow of the red light.
