With all the shopping hoopla and holiday frenzy this time of year can bring, it's sometimes difficult to remember what the holidays are really about. Unfortunately, this season can certainly have a tendency to bring on that “give me" and "get it done" attitude in all of us. That's why over here at Plume, we've decided to give back to a cause we are very passionate about and get back to what the holiday season is truly about. During the months of December and January when you shop Plume online, we will give a percentage of those sales to Art And Abolition, a solidarity movement fueled by love, and the understanding that as Harriet Tubman said, "until we are all free, none of us is free."
Art And Abolition specifically targets girls 15 and under who, because of poverty and/or pressure and threats of violence from their caregivers are being forced to sell their bodies for everyday necessities like food, water, and school fees. Their goal is to liberate survivors of sexual slavery, see them healed and restored, release them into their dreams, and change mentalities in their communities concerning sexual abuse while equipping caregivers with tools for financial stability. Art And Abolition does this by identifying children who meet their criteria, recruiting them into the organization, and then offering them programs for healing through art, education, and empowerment.
