This Bracelet was inspired by our partnership with Saving Innocence, and the brave survivors that have risen above child sex trafficking. We designed this bracelet with Devine at the Saving Innocence house. This bracelet is used to raise awareness and donations for their cause and to be a vehicle to tell Devine's story. This courageous survivor has chosen the name Devine to protect her identity. Here is her story:
I was 14, moving group home to group home. I had an unsupportive family and reunification never happened. The last time I ran away I didn’t have shelter, food, or clothes, and most of all love. I was tricked into making money to get those things. I only got shelter and did not receive any of the things that meant most to me - and in the next two years, I lost the real me. I finally got out because I was pregnant. I wanted more for my child and myself. I’ve been working on achieving my dreams ever since. I am a single mother pursuing on a degree in Child Development and working part time as administrative assistant. Purchasing this bracelet will help my son and I get out of transitional housing. It represents joy because I am finding happiness after overcoming years of trauma and abuse. Thank you for your support and for not judging me.
Saving innocence’s vision is to end the commercial sexual exploitation of children and restore the cultural values of innocence and human worth. Harmony & Devine were two of the girls that they rescued and work with everyday to restore their lives.
Each bracelet is hand made using black Laborite, a custom bead pattern, elastic band, and finished with our signature copper BEAD RELIEF tag. Each bracelet is $35.00 and 25% of your purchase supports Devine.
Bracelets come in three sizes, 6, 7, 8 inches (S,M,L). Please remember to select your size!
