This past Sunday I hosted a jewelry party on behalf of an organization called Destiny Rescue. Their mission is to save young girls from the sex trade. Once girls are rescued, they are brought into a home with other survivors and taught skills such as jewelry making. I became an advocate for Destiny Rescue two years ago when they came to my school and spoke in chapel. As an advocate, one way to help support Destiny Rescue’s efforts is through hosting a jewelry party. I hosted a party last year and wanted to do the same this year! You can read about last year’s party here.
The whole process is super easy and requires very minimal work for the host. Just email a rep here and they send you a ton of jewelry and all the materials free of charge! The host’s job is to make food/desserts and invite people. Once the party is over, you send back all the unsold jewelry and all the proceeds. Super easy!
For the desserts I made some similar ones to last year: dessert kebabs, buckeyes, fruit pizza, chocolate chip cookies and raspberry lemonade sherbet punch. They were all delicious!
I had six people come to the party this year (triple my attendance from my first year!) so I was happy with the turnout. I’m thankful to have such amazing friends that support me!
You have a week or two after your party until you have to send back the jewelry, so even if some people weren’t able to make the party, they can still buy something!
Check out Destiny Rescue’s two websites! (The first one is the link to their shop, which has some of the same jewelry that I had available, if you’d like to purchase them online or you can donate on their main website.)
Again, thank you so much to everybody who prayed for this event and invested financially. Your support is going to help so many young girls be rescued and introduced to the unconditional love of Christ.
