The fifth in a series of blogs of fun Christmas gift ideas that give back: WorldCrafts. This season, why not make your money count? (find the first idea here!)

Today’s gift is close to my heart.

How does it give back?

Tamarisk Tree Pink lights glow in the windows of massage parlors, hair salons, bath houses, bars, and karaoke clubs—letting customers know of “special services” available inside. Prostitution in China is hidden in plain sight and traps many women who are desperate to support their families. The Tamarisk Tree workshop provides women the opportunity to instead earn a living by handcrafting beautiful jewelry. While working in this supportive setting, women are also provided counseling, shelter, and medical care. Through the dedicated friendship of Tamarisk Tree volunteers, women are discovering their true worth as “daughters of the Father made new.”

This issue is close to my heart, but also the head artisan leader, Sarah, has had to leave this critical work to take care of something precious: Adah. Adah was diagnosed three months ago with Leukemia and is recieving a life-changing transplant from her younger sister (pictured at right) today. Please pray for them. Please remember them.
