PB, I just received my branded cuff bracelet and it is already on my wrist. I am honored to wear it, and I will think about you each time I do. I read how, if you could have a superpower, you would want to be a healer. You are already healing people everyday with your work at Branded and I know that is just the beginning for you and your healing powers. I feel your strength in this bracelet you made, and I plan to take that strength and do something positive with it to help girls and women who have suffered similarly to you. I send you my love, and wish you nothing but the best. I know you will be amazing in your advocacy work. Heal on! Laura #47742

I purchased your brass cuff, it was beautifully made by RO. I pray for strength for you daily, do not loose hope. “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.” ‭‭Philippians‬ ‭4:6‬ ‭NLT‬‬

I'm so so thanks for your working. Someday, i hope to meet you and your present(this meaning is that your necklace is like a present for me). Bye! Have a good days!!

Hey M, thank you so much for this beautiful ring. I pray for you whenever I put the ring on, and whenever I get asked about the ring. My prayer for you today is that the Lord's wisdom will guide you and His love and comfort will sustain you. I pray for continued healing, peace in freedom and unexplainable joy to fill your lungs today. You are seen, known and adored M! I only wish I could meet you myself. Thank you again.

Dear CC, thank you so much for the beautiful rose gold ring! It's an honor to wear it and be reminded of you and all the battles you've won-- your strength, resilience, and light. You are an overcomer, and I rejoice in that with you! I think of you often and pray that you are filled to the brim with peace and joy. Your labor is so meaningful and valuable; thank you for sharing pieces of your story, your heart, with so many of us. You-- all of you-- are seen and so very loved. May you feel that truth deeply on this Valentine's Day!

To all of you: I don't know where to begin. I received my bracelet from my aunt. I've recently (1+ year or so) begun to truly understand the depth and size of the atrocities of human trafficking. (I'm pausing for crying... Hold please 🥺). Ok.*deep breath* I immediately began pouring tears when starring at this number. To imagine your sweet souls in a dark room, alley, or basement... Locked away, beaten, raped and tortured... Tortures my soul. I am SO happy that you have been saved. You are free! You are happy! You are alive!!! ❤️ How AMAZING that you did it! You are ALIVE!! I can't begin to fathom the dark moments you hold inside of your heads and nightmares. I know they haunt you, but remember in those flashes that you also hold a light! YOU are the signals other women AND CHILDREN are looking to, calling out for. YOU are the ones that will pull them out of hopelessness, loneliness, fear and the depths of hell on earth. You are. Don't ever, EVER doubt that! Because you so valiantly fought for your very life, you are the ones that I proudly call friends I've never met. Women who LITERALLY fought off the most evil incarnate, vicious abusers who dared to think they could snuff out such beautiful lights! WHAT FOOLS! I can barely hold it together when thinking of you... Not just because of your stories, but because you are so wonderful, so brave, and so courageous that you have the strength to carry on... Day by day... Hour by hour. You will be the change. Your journey will not be in vain. Your fight will be remembered. My daughter is very aware of these realities, and because of women like you- I know that she is living in a world that is getting safer and ONE DAY, her daughter will be able to walk down the street alone, without fear. Because of YOU. I love you all so very much and pray for your continued safety, health, HAPPINESS, and strength. I know your fight continues as living a daily life is hard, some of you are in hiding, and some of your sisters didn't make it. We will not be silent! We will not go away!!! We will fight for you and support you ALWAYS! Love always, Ashley, Aly (15) & a boy who **will grow** into a LOVING man- Alex (7) God bless you all. 💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗💗

The stars in the sky tell me that even the moon cries. The morning orange tells me that no matter what, we rise. Through the darkness there's light, all around us, beauty lies. In the songs of the birds, in the sun and our minds, in our own two eyes. In the stories we tell, in the black and white. With every breath, we're told it is going to be alright. Keep fighting, keep dreaming. With every step, we are succeeding. With every wave to a stranger, in each smile of our own, we minimize the danger, we find our heart is home. Speak your truth, there's no need to hold it in the one place no one can ever see. There is balance in life, choose to believe. If there is balance in everything, and our will is free, we can choose the light, we have all the beauty we need. When you need a reminder that you are the one who saves yourself every day, listen to the song "Little By Little" by Tom Grennan and think of yourself. Every day, you save yourself. Little by little love. You are worth it.

To know I’m part of the fight against human trafficking and supporting CC in her journey is incredible. I wish you well and I pray you’ll be able to get your cabin by a lake with lots of animals and land in the near future. You deserve it and most importantly, do not stop reaching for the stars ⭐️ Danielle

Thank you for your struggle and for clinging to the hope of tomorrow. The strength that you have shown has been an inspiration to others, even though you may not know it. The beauty of life is in belief. Belief of a light, even when you're in darkness. Belief that a day will come when things will be better. Your ability to believe, your strength and your craftsmanship are all beautiful. Share the light.

Thank you so much for everything you have overcome in order to inspire hope in others and in me. I chose the "little by little" quote because it reminded me of the journeys of the people I work with (I am a social worker) and also my own journey of life and healing. It is a reminder that no matter what one does, thinks, or feels, that things will always continue to change little by little. Everytime I wear my bracelet, I will think of PB and all survivors and wherever they are now. Much love and thoughts to all the survivors, Diana
Diana (#49899)
You have shown such resiliency! Follow your dreams as you can make them come true! I believe in you! Thank you for making such a beautiful pair of earrings! Continue to rise up, think of yourself as a beautiful dandelion; a dandelion always pops right back up no matter what comes her way! ;)
