Among the unique opportunities available to ServLife volunteers is working in the ServLife Store. This mobile gift shop features items created by talented artisans in regions where ServLife is working — from victims of human trafficking and sexual exploitation in Nepal to HIV+ widows struggling to survive in South Africa. Items are fashioned by women who are working to escape the brutal trap of extreme poverty and human trafficking.
Items for sale in the ServLife Store include beautiful pieces of jewelry, wallets, table linens, pillow covers, paper products, clothing, bags and purses, soaps, and candles.
By purchasing these products, customers help provide viable economic alternatives for the oppressed and survivors of sexual exploitation, as well as helping empower local indigenous communities and spreading the love of Jesus Christ in word and deed through the work of ServLife.
The ServLife Store will be featured at several upcoming events this summer and fall. Upcoming shows include the Penrod Arts Festival in Indianapolis, Indiana (Sept. 12, 2009), the Louisville Travel Show in Kentucky (Sept. 26-27), and the St. Joan of Arc French Market in Indianapolis (Sept. 12, 2009).
If you are interested in volunteering to help run the ServLife Store at any of these upcoming festivals, let us know! Either way, we would love to see you there!
You can also shop online at the ServLife Store. Giving gifts from the ServLife Store is a tremendous way to make an impact – both at home and around the world.
