We hope this finds you and your loved ones healthy and safe as we move into the second half of 2020. Like many of you, we had such high hopes that 2020 would be “the best yet.” However, today we find ourselves charting new courses, adjusting expectations, and living life quite differently than earlier this year. Our operations, team and those we support have been significantly impacted, but we remain steadfast in our mission to help end human trafficking through employment opportunities.
We here at 3 Strands Shop are about hope for the future. And as our motto states, we are here to spread “Freedom, Love & Empowerment,” and to play a major role in ending modern day slavery.
During this time, those we serve have been among the most significantly affected. According to a recent article from the United Nations, the COVID-19 crisis is putting human trafficking victims at risk of further exploitation. We are proud to support organizations who work on the ground to offer prevention efforts and rescue operations as well as restoration and empowerment programs for survivors.
At 3 Strands Shop today, and every day, we are committed to supporting the empowerment of survivors as they re-enter their communities. Through the job opportunities that 3 Strands Shop and our customers provide through product sales, we are empowering survivors to live independently and free from exploitation.
We would like to make a special thanks to those of you who have continued to SHOP WITH PURPOSE through these challenging times. We are forever grateful. As we begin to realign our work for the future, we are hopeful that you will come alongside us as we grow in new and different ways to best support our mission to empower survivors around the world.
CEO, 3 Strands Shop
