Each year we partner with Living Bread Ministries & Freegrance to both raise needed funds for our Hill church plant and ministry and to support the work of LBM among women vulnerable to human trafficking. For every purchase and with the use of CPCHiLL20 on www.freegrance.com, twenty percent (20%) will go to our CPC in The Hill account that supports our church plant in the Hill community of New Haven, Connecticut.
The Freegrance vision
Our vision is to help women vulnerable to human trafficking by helping them start businesses and bring their products to market under the Freegrance brand
“Women and girls find themselves selling the only commodity they have, their bodies, in order to provide for themselves and their families. They enter the sex industry and are trafficked for someone else’s profit. They make a small sum with which they scrape out a meager existence for themselves and their extended families.” Living Bread Ministries, as a component of their church planting ministry, gives the ladies the opportunity to start a business. Then these women entrepreneurs in Thailand use their skills to make soap and ear-rings, in turn which they sell to Freegrance, Inc. then sells through their website (freegrance.com).
Please take the time to peruse the freegrance website and consider supporting these ladies—and our church plant in the Hill >> www.freegrance.com/shop << Use the Code: CPCHill20 in the promo code discount box during purchase so Lisa and I will get credit for your purpose. The ladies who make the soap and run the businesses have already been paid, so the 20% doesn't shrink what they earn–it helps market their product!
This year (and into future years) all the support we gain through this fundraiser will go directly to support the ministry of Maxine Harris, our CPC in The Hill administrative assistant. She is a long time Hill resident and is a vital part of our Hill ministry. Please help, buy some soap (and maybe an earring or two), and support Maxine!
And, please share as well . . .
