What if there was a way you could shop for new clothing while helping to prevent sex-trafficking, educate communities, empower the population and support after-care facilities for victims at the same time?

My Sister makes if possible.

My Sister is an ethically sourced apparel and accessories store working towards preventing sex trafficking around the globe. They offer products such as T-shirts, Sweatshirts, Hoodies, Metallic Tattoos, Survivor-Made Jewelry and Organic Lip Products. Every purchase helps support after-care programs and provide growth opportunities for survivors of sexual exploitation. Supporters also help in continuing the conversation of sex trafficking through what they wear.

Specifically during the holiday season, My Sister will also be donating items that provide warmth to youth and women in need with every shirt sold. So shopping with My Sister during the first weekend of Holidazzle this year will be a great way to give gifts. You’ll give twice.

Don’t miss My Sister on Friday, Nov. 24 through Sunday, Nov. 26. Holidazzle is open Nov. 24 through Dec. 23 on Thursdays from 5-9 pm, Fridays from 5-10 pm, Saturdays from 11 am-10 pm and Sundays from 11 am-7 pm.

My Sister launched online in May 2015, and in July of 2016 it opened its first retail store in Uptown Minneapolis. Since launching, My Sister has raised and given over $77,500 to their non-profit partners as well as connecting with tens of thousands of people to educate, raise awareness, and provide support for hundreds of girls and women around the world.

Retail and Events Manager Emily Karis said they are most excited about being part of Holidazzle this year to help spread their message during the time of year when giving is so important.

“We can raise awareness about sex trafficking and show people how we can work together to make a change,” Emily said. “Plus, we will be providing great gifts that all give back!”

My Sister hopes Holidazzle goers can walk away with a better understanding of sex trafficking, knowledge of how to help, and the feeling of wanting to create change moving forward.

“We also hope they think more about shopping consciously and buying with purpose,” Emily said.

For the young girls and women in every city and state being affected by sexual exploitation, make sure you stop by and see My Sister at Holidazzle this year.
