This was one of those days I'll never forget. I had the opportunity in January to travel to Cambodia with Imagine Goods and we got to spend the day with their partner Agape International Missions.
This is Agape's sewing room where they employ over 40 women who are survivors of trafficking with ethical work. Just a few minutes prior to this photo taken, it was filled with women... women who were busy making products like the Imagine Goods ladderback tank I'm wearing! Women who had life and dignity in their eyes. Women who knew they had worth and were proud of the way they were providing for themselves and their families.
And even though I didn't get to see inside of a typical garment factory in Cambodia (where many of our clothes are made), I think it's safe to say I wouldn't have seen that same life in the room. I won't go into details about garment factories in this post, but this is where it became very clear to me that we have great power in our purchases. I knew I wanted to be even more intentional with them when I got home and I'd love to share with you about the journey I've been on and the great companies I've learned about. Let's journey together!
