Living large and giving generously.
I’ve always viewed my creative skill as a super power that I was gifted to fight injustice. Secretly I’ve also wished I could be awesome at some sort of martial arts, but that hasn’t happened as yet. Viewing this as a gift I can use to “give back”, I’ve used it to serve causes like Mukti Village.
Mukti means “Freedom”. Mukti Village works toward creating awareness and raising funds to educate children born into one of the largest red light districts in Asia, Sonagachi, Kolkata. Through education, there is hope that these children will have the opportunity and freedom to live better lives. Mukti also supports a home for women rescued from the sex trade. These women earn a living by making beautiful pieces of ethnic Indian art. One of the many things they make is The Sari Book, offered on my site here. The Sari Book is handmade, wrapped in gorgeous coloured Indian sari prints, ranging from silk to kantha stitch. Each diary is one-of-a-kind and made with love.
Consider joining this fight for freedom and supporting these women by purchasing one or more of these beauties. All funds from the sales of these diaries go directly toward funding the women’s shelter.
What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.
