As many of you know, Style Fox is passionate about social responsibility and causes related to women. The first installment of our new column “Brands with Heart” features an inspiring non-profit company that is doing amazing things to help stop global human trafficking: iSanctuary jewelry. Based out of Orange County, California, iSanctuary helps integrate female human trafficking victims back into society by providing them with fair wage jobs making handmade jewelry. Since 2010 iSanctuary has provided employment to over 200 women rescued from human trafficking in India as well as 10 women rescued right here in the US.
iSanctuary was founded by Stephanie Pollaro and Wendy Dailey back in 2007. Ms. Pollaro moved to India in 2006 where everyday she strives to save women from one of the most human trafficked countries in the world. She currently resides in Mumbai where human trafficking of girls and women is a $1 billion dollar industry. Through education, awareness and jewelry sales, iSanctuary is helping save trafficked women one piece of jewelry at a time. We had a chance to get an inside scoop from Michelle Johnson, anti-human trafficking advocate and iSanctuary’s PR rep.
What has been the most rewarding so far? Any specific stories about women who were saved from human trafficking that you would like to share?
