About

More people live in slavery today than ever before!!

That's NOT OKAY with me! 

 

My name is Naomi, currently I am a SAHWM (stay at home working Mom). My husband pastors a small church in Alberta, we have a tween and a teen.

Before this chapter in my life, I worked for the SA (Servants Anonymous) Foundation, an incredible Canadian Christian organization specializing in setting up long term recovery programs around the world. I did fund & project development, was a house mom in the recovery home for a couple years living with women who had fled a life of sexual exploitation. In two years, I had over 40 roommates! It was the most exciting two years of my life! I also helped start SAF's first international project in Nepal. While in Nepal I started my first social enterprise. I truly had no idea what I was doing but, what I knew was that to keep women from being forced to sell their bodies, they needed sustainable dignified employment and skills! 

Here are some fun (awful) pictures of the first handicraft business I started in Kathmandu, Nepal! Those first woolen items were so terrible! It's really a miracle they sold!! They were so itchy. hahahaha

 

Since we could only sell toques for part of the year I decided to get into jewelry. I had never made a piece of jewelry my entire life! I had to get my husband, who is a fly-tier to help me. He taught me knots and other techniques. 

In 2017, I regretfully stepped away from SA Foundation to be home with the kids. However, I soon realized I still needed a platform to keep speaking about the global sex trade - a cause that I feel called to give my life to. Redeemed was started accidentally and has continued to grow and gain momentum. We started redeeming old belts and turning them into cuffs. I just loved the symbolism of taking old discarded belts, investing in them and giving them new life! Exactly what every sexually exploited person needs and deserves. 

 

Thanks to your loyal support and for telling your friends about us, we have given away over $40,00.00 to eight different charities in three countries helping strengthen the life saving work of these charities. 

LORD WILLING - perhaps we can add more zeros to that number!?

My main focus these days is using Redeemed to speak to groups about the harms of pornography and the dangers of human trafficking. Our cell phones and the apps we use is the strongest, closest and greatest connector from the global sex trade to our families and vice versa. We have to be ready and equipped to fight this aggressive predator. Naomi has spoken to thousands of parents of the years and several hundred teens to empower and equip.

    #2. GLOBAL IMPACT

    • As we can, we import ethically made product from social enterprises working in impoverished and high risk communities to support the family unit, keep kids at home, and decrease their vulnerability to sexual exploitation and trafficking. 
    • We also import survivor made jewelry from other frontline organizations like Starfish Project & Purpose Jewelry.  We also purchase from a survivor lead social enterprise, Sanctuaire.  
    • We source ethically made chocolate to give consumers ethical choices locally.
    • Note: I'm aware I cannot verify the production of all our raw materials without traveling the world and personally visiting factories. As this is not sustainable we do our best to shop consciously as much as we can while realizing that almost everything we all purchase, including our clothes, mobile devices and computers are made with questionable practices and ethics. We all have a responsibility to put pressure on large companies like Apple, Gap, Nike, Nestle, etc. to clean up their production line! 

    #3. LOCAL IMPACT

    • All other pieces are designed by me and produced by a single mom in my area. 
    • We partner with several locally owned boutiques, who donate shelf space to us to help empower consumers to shop ethically and raise awareness on issues of sexual exploitation, human trafficking and slavery. See our growing list of partner stores here
    • Naomi has spoken in churches, schools and clubs to thousands of concerned parents and hundreds of youth across Alberta to raise awareness and equip parents, families and youth to push back against online dangers. 

    • By speaking openly on social media about these issues, Naomi has had so many people reach out to tell their horror stories of how porn has impacted their marriage, how they have lost a child to video game addiction, how social media has negatively affected their girls pushing them to self harm, depression and even suicide attempts, how their girls were groomed, lured and forced into the sex trade, how their boys lost their lives as a result of sextortion, etc.
    • Every family is being negatively impacted these days by the brain altering apps we have all become dependent on. To add further harm to injury these apps are used heavily by people of ill intent, with children as their target. It is time as a society to push back! 

    #4. WHAT CAN YOU DO?

    • If you are passionate about fighting this cause, if you love our story, join us! Spread the word, gift Redeemed, share the love on social media, apply to be a brand rep, donate shelf space if you are a business owner, book a presentation, etc. You name it! The opportunities are endless for those who seek justice. I can't wait to connect with you or see your sweet name on our order list!
