At Impact Thrift Stores, we joke about World Domination…
But then again… why not!
We ask ourselves… could we find a way to support other organizations outside of our region- worldwide in fact – that actively make a difference in the lives of families and children while still fulfilling our mission of financially supporting locally-based charities?
Well, we think we’ve found a way… and we call it Impact International!
Impact Thrift is excited to open a new in-store department that we are calling Impact International. This new department, currently only in our Feasterville store, will display and sell products that directly financially support those in need in foreign lands; empowering them to create a sustainable life for themselves and their families. 100% of the net proceeds generated by the sale of these items go directly back to the organizations supporting those in need. Please join us as we come alongside these organizations in their support of others.
The two organizations represented in this department are:
Sustained Acts is a non-profit organization whose mission is to support sustainable projects for those in need in Kenya. Sustained Acts offers “Crafts from Kenya” which are Kenyan designed and produced crafts. Sustained Acts has pledged that 75% of the price will be paid directly to the crafts person and 25% will go towards supporting Kenyan ministries overseeing the local Kenyan orphanage. Sustained Acts Kenya Crafts are in all four Impact Thrift Stores.
Worthwhile Wear is a non-profit organization focused on the prevention of, rehabilitation from and raising awareness about human trafficking and sex slave industries in India. One of the many ways that Worthwhile Wear supports their mission is to sell jewelry and purses for
Freeset, Nightlight and Rahab’s Rope whose merchandise is produced by girls and women who have been rescued from the brothels and sexual slavery. Through Freeset, Nightlight and Rahab’s Rope these rescued girls
and woman are not only taught a trade but are getting much needed education as well as emotional, physical and spiritual support. These women’s lives are being transformed from one of being victims of degrading sexual exploitation to one that is filled with hope, dignity and self-worth and are now economically empowered.
