Recently, we had chance to catch up with close friend, Dianna Bautista with Shear Love International for an episode on The Mike Thakur Show.
Dianna’s a rock star who’s committed her life to rescuing and helping people trapped in human trafficking and the sex slave industry. Through our in-house, nonprofit partner the Gabriel Project, we’ve supported Dianna for years. They don’t just help and rescue, but they teach, educate and retrain the people they help with new, meaningful skills that translate to earning a living wage so these folks never return back to the lives they came from.
When COVID hit, it was a game changer for Dianna because the lock down prevented them doing the things they’d normally be doing to earn, and so she started a new vocational training program based around textiles, in the hope that they could create new products for sale to help bridge the financial gap. The result? Our awesome WorkLodge Beanies which did I mention, are really awesome?!
As a thank you to all of our members who office out of a WorkLodge, we bought hundreds of them to support the cause and now we’re giving them away FREE (while supplies last). Each beanie has a tag on it, with the actual name of the person who hand made it, just for you.
It’s been a crazy year and even without a pandemic, we’re so so grateful for the many amazing people who choose to place their trust and business in our hands on a daily basis. We hope these beanies will be a reminder of our appreciation, and the many lives that have been changed because of your support.
