We are committed to making it so that only when you give, but also when you shop, you can help others. And we love product reviews—because they help us, and the artisans we work with, to continue to improve the offerings in our fair trade shop. I have been inspired this week by the messages you all are leaving on the product pages in our fair trade shop. Here are a few quotes from reviews that truly moved me.
“What I like most [about the Hope Art Beaded Bracelets is] that I can wear them and know that I am supporting a global economy, and not a big franchise. I am proud to wear them and tell people that they are handmade and beautiful, and benefit an orphanage in Zambia.” —Charlotte
I ordered three of [the Hope Art] … handmade bracelets. Each one was beautiful, yet different. They go with both casual and dressy outfits—my 21-year-old niece loved it, especially hearing the back story of how these bracelets help widows in Zambia.” —Jana (who also serves on Jesus’ Economy’s Board of Directors)
“[The Handmade Glass Earrings from Haiti] not only makes you feel good for providing jobs and wearing recycled materials, but they are totally fun to wear! I have a pair of these for myself (Brown) and also got a pair of the Translucent Green as a gift for my daughter. … I'm putting a blue pair on my Christmas list!” —Tricia (who is also my aunt-in-law who modeled our fair trade women’s t-shirt)
“I am enjoying this fair-trade [leather] journal and keep it in my lightweight professional backpack for those timeouts for inspiration. … The founders really put their heart into [the] vision of Jesus’ Economy. I wish them every success and hope thousands more people choose to buy gifts here.” —Raphael (who received a free product review copy, for our research and development)
(We’re sold out of the leather journal Raphael recommends, but you can still order the burlap version, made by the same group of artisans.)
We love hearing your feedback. You’re truly an inspiration to us—both those of you who know us personally, which we hope is all of you someday, and all of you who found us via our fair trade shop.
If you have recently received a product from Jesus' Economy, we would love to hear from you. Please contact us here or leave a product review on the item you purchased!
