ethical christmas shopping
Give the gift of freedom while you shop
"We 3 Kings of Orient are, bearing gifts we ..." Oh yes! Did you finish that carol in your head or out loud? Love it or loathe it (we love it), Christmas is coming and if you're looking for some gifts that are a bit different and ethically sound, we've put together a number of businesses that have the same values as us, campaigning against trafficking, and working to rescue, support and assist survivors too. How great to give the gift of freedom to someone in desperate need at the same time as giving gifts to family and friends at Christmas. That's a win-win. Merry Shopping and tell us how you get on. Also, if you come across companies you think we could share here, let us know.
