Shop at Seven Status

Last year we ran a human trafficking awareness event called 'Freedom for Nepal'. We had the owner of one of our favorite freedom businesses, Five14 Nepal, share about their work in Nepal. We were honored to have a local store, Seven Status, promote our event. It was the first time I heard about this social business that is here in our city. What I like about Seven Status is that their business exists to fight human trafficking. More than that just being a cute saying they actually back it up by donating 20% of their profits to fight human trafficking....

Manufacturing with an Ethical Business

In 2016 we set out to start making connections for our ethical garment manufacture in Nepal. The first contract we helped generate was with a training campus here in Colorado Springs. They ordered 150 black t-shirts for their students for the next year. They turned out beautifully and are awesome shirts! It was so rewarding to see an organization choosing to partner with freedom. The investment of getting the shirts was higher, they could have saved money going somewhere else, but their values led them in making the decision to have their shirts made ethically. We hope to continue to...

It's an exciting time to be alive in a day and age where Freedom Businesses are on the rise. What are Freedom Businesses? Freedom Businesses are social entrepreneurs creating impactful businesses, changing communities and restoring lives.

Orphan Prevention through Job Creation

Orphan Prevention through Job Creation

This idea - orphan prevention through job creation - is something I came across when I read a blog post about Papillion Enterprise (http://papillon-enterprise.com/). I love this idea and have been deeply challenged by it. When we create jobs, and support businesses that create jobs, our influence isn't only felt by that employee. Our influence is felt by that entire family and all the relatives that are supported through that wage. Your purchases have power.
