Hello, Senhoa loves,

Senhoa volunteers preparing and packing the beads for our 700-unit order from The Fancy!
The Fancy is a social networking webstore, self-described as “part store, blog, magazine and wishlist.” Users connect through shared tastes of products and can purchase these wish items on the website. They offer a monthly subscription service in which users pay $39/month to receive a package of cool, interesting products. Our champion Coco Rocha was commissioned to curate a box, and she asked Senhoa to design earrings for this project. We are excited to share our beautiful jewelry and story with The Fancy fans! “Discover amazing stuff” at http://www.fancy.com/!
Our Creative Director Jenny and her volunteers made cute gifts for the artisans in our jewelry program :

We just received our copies of This Is No Ordinary Joy: How the Courage of Survivors Transformed My Life (written by founder of Made by Survivors and our land-standing partner Sarah Symons) yesterday, and I already started on this amazing read.
Sarah: “My journey has taken me to some of the darkest places on the face of the earth, and brought me into contact with the most depraved elements of humanity, as well as the most courageous and beautiful. Along the way, I’ve spent long hours sitting on the dirt floors of shelters and red light districts, I have feared for my life, scattered my wallets, keys and other belongings across South Asia, met heroes in the most unlikely places, re-envisioned my marriage, flirted with despair, and helped thousands of survivors rebuild their lives…”
Learn about Sarah’s discoveries, struggles and triumphs on her journey into the darkness of modern slavery in Southeast Asia and how it led her to start her international charity to provide economic opportunities for survivors.
