International Princess Project

After a few months of getting all of this set up with my mom-- I swear we are never on the same schedule-- I am finally bringing Punjammies to you!  When I noticed International Princess Project asking bloggers to style their Punjammies, I just had to be in on it.  My mom and I have been huge fans of the company for years and it is so great to watch it grow and change over time.

For those of you who don't know what International Princess Project is, it is an organization that helps get women in India out of the sex trade.  They do this by helping women to pay off their debts and then have them come learn how to run their own business through making Punjammies.  Around 3 million women and girls are forced into the sex trade in India.  Many of them come from India; however, a good percent are also from Nepal, Bangledesh, and other Asian countries.  This is a devastating trade that, sadly, makes around $32 billion dollars a year, but one women wanted to change that.  When the founder of IPP, Shannon Keith, went to India in 2005, she was appalled by the amount of women forced into prostitution and she knew she had to do something.  After returning to America, Shannon and a few of her friends got together and created IPP, an organization that would help free the women of the sex trade.  Ever since, IPP has been working hard (and succeeding!) in saving women from the perils of human trafficking.

Do you have a pair of Punjammies?  If not, you should definitely get some :)

  4. I have never heard of them before but what a wonderful cause! It's so important as females to support other women around the globe who don't have the same opportunities as us.
