The Restoration Initiative
A week ago, I posted a blog about how I believe we are to give of what we have when it comes to serving those in need. While I don’t have the ability to give financially at this point in time, I do enjoy writing, and want to use that skill to help make others aware of those in need, and ways in which they can help. Well, today I have that opportunity! My Sister, Brother-in-law, and his Mother (Liz, Jordan, and Brenda Lewis) have started an organization called The Restoration Initiative (TRI) that is raising money to support safe homes in India. These safe homes house children, between the ages of 5 and 16 years old. They have been rescued from the streets, and many of them have been sexually abused. These safe houses help prevent these children from becoming involved in human trafficking, and in the rehabilitation of those who have already suffered abuse.
From their website, Tri-Good.com:
We are a direct sales jewelry company founded in 2011 by Brenda, Jordan, and Liz Lewis out of our desire to help restore hope to the oppressed and sustainably fund the safe homes in India that we closely partner with.
The sales are done through socials, where an advocate for The Restoration Initiative will showcase the jewelry for sale, and share stories of the children they will be supporting. Socials are held in the homes of volunteers who offer to host an event, as coordinated by an advocate for TRI. I’ll share a bit more about what it means to be an advocate later in this post. Below is a slide show of some of the jewelry and accessories you might find at a social.
(I accidentally added too many copies of the same picture, but it’s of my sister, and I’m too lazy to fix it. Now I called her out. Sorry, Liz.)
There are a few ways you can get involved. You can make a purchase at a social, host a social, and you can apply to work with TRI as an advocate. As an advocate, your role would be to book socials, and share jewelry and accessories provided by TRI along with information about The Restoration Initiative, and the children who you will be supporting with your purchases. More information about getting involved can be found here on their site. You can also “like” them here on their Facebook page.
I’m excited to see how funds raised through The Restoration Initiative will help prevent children from suffering the abuse of trafficking. I think this is a great project, and I love how easy it can be to get involved.
