Posted by · December 2, 2013 · 6:00 am · Building Our Faith, Penny's Picks

This Christmas holiday season, my gift to you is sharing some of my gift for sniffing out the good deals. We’re calling it Penny’s Picks, and you won’t want to miss a single one.

If you haven’t heard about it yet, let me introduce you to an amazing ministry to fight human trafficking called Sak Saum. 

From their website:

“Located in Phnom Penh and the Saang district of Cambodia, Sak Saum is a ministry dedicated to the rescue, restoration, transformation and rehabilitation of vulnerable and exploited women and men.”

What we love is, this isn’t just a charity. It is so much more.

“Sak Saum is pioneering a model of self-sustaining ministry. From the beginning, our goal has been to create a nurturing, empowering, restorative program which facilitates vocational training in sewing, excellent products, and community development. We believe in the union of powerful, life-changing outreach with effective, excellent business.”

Take 6 minutes and watch this video of how Sak Saum started and just what their ministry does. We think you’ll agree, it’s a awesome endeavor and a very worthy cause.

“Sak Saum is not ultimately about a bag, wallet, or scarf. Sak Saum is about a changed life … seeing people set free and empowered for their future.

We believe the cycles of trafficking, abuse, poverty and despair can be broken. We believe change is possible — we see it every day.”

So how are they a “self-sustaining” ministry? The women of Sak Saum create some of the most beautiful products we’ve seen and sell them around the world. Looks at some of these gorgeous items.

If you want to browse more and support the ministry by buying their products, go here for their store.

The best part? Today (Monday Dec 1) they are having their biggest sale of the year. I just did almost all my Christmas shopping for the special women in my life, saved a ton of money and supported a strong, biblically sound ministry. Wow. That’s a good deal. Just be sure to use the discount code Holiday13.

We hope you agree with Sak Saum as we do, when they say,

“This is how the battle against human trafficking will be won – one person, one family, one community at a time.”

We did not receive any compensation from this post, we just wanted to share a way for you to join others in a worthy cause.

    Wow! I honestly was expecting very plain bags. But these are really delightful, with sweet adornments like the buttons and bows. I’m loving that yellowish one with the gray bow!

    This is my sort of purchase, too.

    For Mother’s Day, our church gave all the mamas a pair of earrings made by a similar company. They were made over in Africa by a small company trying to help orphans. Okay, it’s SOMETHING like that. I was pregnant that Sunday and stayed home because I felt awful! So my husband went and heard the story and picked out my pair!

    I just bought a calendar recently to help a little girl with cancer. I mean, if it’s something you need to get anyway, why not spend a little extra to help out someone in need? It’s such a great idea. I wish more companies did this sort of thing!

    Thanks for sharing! (I’m pinning this post :))
