Buy a Necklace- Fight Human Trafficking

By | Blog, Fundraiser | No Comments

I am very honored and excited to announce that The Rusted Chain Jewelry has created a custom-designed piece in support of ICT S.O.S. and in January $10 from the purchase of each necklace will be donated to help end human trafficking right here in Wichita.

Here’s what owner, Beki, has to say about the necklace:

Youth Resource Center Updates

The center is coming along! The contractors are in there now doing the heavy duty stuff. Good news/Bad news: the opening date is probably going to be delayed BUT, the end result is going to be even better than we had planned. The details are coming together for the flooring, paint, kitchen cabinets and countertops, etc. It’s going to be AMAZING!

Here is a link to some of the photos from the work day on November 19th: https://www.facebook.com/#!/media/set/?set=a.299641800068452.77624.202503353115631&type=3

And don’t forget, there are still LOTS of needed items. If you’d like to pick up a few while you’re out Christmas shopping, here’s a Target Wishlist: http://www.target.com/ot/list/u6n_NB5d5DYIVbrSVigy2Q

Thnk you to everyone who has supported this project. It’s going to be so wonderful for our community when it is finished!
