The Starfish Project: It all starts with a gift
for December 1, 2020
What began as gifting a few random pieces of jewelry, Cici and the team have turned into something incredibly powerful!
This holiday season we are over-the-moon-excited to launch our Give Hope Necklace! This necklace has been on our hearts and in the design phase for many months now. What began as gifting a few random pieces of jewelry, Cici and the team have turned into something incredibly powerful!
For our Outreach teams, few brothel relationships are the same. Yet with each and every brothel we always find an opportunity to give a simple gift to the women and girls we meet. You would be shocked how a gift of grapes has completely transformed a relationship that was once at a standstill. We have learned from the women already experiencing freedom at Starfish Project the power of a thoughtful gift. Many of the women in our office will tell you that their first birthday here is among their favorite memories. For most, it is the first time they have been celebrated and given a gift that was thoughtfully chosen specifically for them.
Thoughtful gifts speak words of encouragement to the depths of the heart. They say- you are loved, you are valued, the world is a better place with you in it.
Thoughtful gifts speak words of encouragement to the depths of the heart. They say- you are loved, you are valued, the world is a better place with you in it. That message of hope was the inspiration for our new Give Hope Necklace.
This holiday season we want to invite you to partner with us as we offer this hopeful message to women and girls still in exploitation. As you purchase the Give Hope Necklace, either to gift or to keep, we will set aside a necklace exactly like yours to give to a woman still in the brothel.
As our Outreach Teams visit women still in exploitation, we will deliver your message of hope along with the beautiful Give Hope Necklace. In this way, we will further build relationships and offer women the opportunity to experience freedom, establish independence, and develop careers at Starfish Project!
We hope that as you wear this necklace, you too will be inspired by the women who have created it.
The coming together of the mother-of-pearl and 14k gold plating speaks of the restoration the women have experienced here at Starfish Project, as well as their heart to see women still stuck in exploitation experiencing freedom. On the other side of this reversible necklace, we have engraved the word ‘hope’. We hope that as the women we meet receive this beautiful gift, they will have new hope for a life outside of exploitation.
We truly believe that hope should be shared, and we have created the Give Hope Necklace with this in mind. We lovingly package each Give Hope Necklace in our brand new Gold and White gift box and include a card explaining the one-for-one impact of this purchase inside. When you give this beautiful heart necklace to someone you care about, she will also know that one has been created to offer the hope of freedom to a woman still trapped in exploitation.
Purchase the Give Hope Necklace to gift one to a woman still in exploitation.
