Junk In The Trunk Vintage Market Partners With Mission One's Kijabe Women's Sewing Project
Junk in the Trunk Vintage Market was created to bring people together who love vintage and antiques. While that vision still moves us forward today, the responsibility to do good weighs heavier. We want to be a brand that encourages others, empowers small business owners and uses our platform to help those who need it most.
We started talking about expanding our vision for our markets and how they could be a way to help others in need. We had the opportunity to meet with the Mission One team to talk about partnering together and we left feeling excited that we could play a small role in helping those in need.
Mission ONE trains and mobilizes the Church, focusing on cross-cultural partnerships to engage the unreached and serve the poor and oppressed and we are excited to share in that vision together.
One of the ways that Mission One partners with people is to help create sustainable businesses that will aid in the support of villages to meet their everyday needs.
We have the amazing opportunity to raise funds for a ministry that focuses on at risk women and children whose lack of employment forces them into prostitution. The monies raised will help the women go through a 6-month training program and provide funds to support their families while they learn a trade. At the end of the training program, they will have a skill that will allow them to find employment in villages nearby or start a new life in a new town.
We are also raising funds to buy new equipment for the training center, which will allow the village to continue to provide vocational training to women for years to come.
Your attendance at any of our markets will help these will women write a different story for their life, as a portion of the proceeds from our markets will go towards this project. You can also choose to make an additional donation when purchasing your VIP (Scottsdale only) or Early Entry tickets.
