I promise to pray for and support in whatever way I can all my sisters who are or were once trapped in human trafficking and slavery. Every person can make a difference and every life is valuable and sacred. Each time I wear my beautiful jewelry I'll remember my blessings and remind myself to make the world better for someone else.

I have just been give a bracelet for Christmas and want to connect with you all, am so excited with the divine idea you had to start such a business, fantastic, love it. I am involved through the Mission Ministry at my church in Pittsburgh with sex-trafficked persons. Annually we have been to a city to pray and meet women who are trafficked and the homeless. It has been a eye opening experience for me. There go I but for the grace and love of God My Father who rescued me and saved me. I'd be dead if He hadn't or living in a gutter. Blessing on you & all your doing in this field, I am with you in prayer and will advertise you where ever I can. As the dong says"When I see the Cross I see freedom, my chains are gone, my debt is paid and from death to live I will sing Your Praise"

I live in a big city where sex trafficking is huge. I am wearing your branded bracelet because I believe you need to be honored. I wear your bracelet with pride and when asked about it I turn them to this web site. Sad thing is I know these girls here in Atlanta are in the same mall as I shop in. I have learned from this website the two main types of tattoos. I wish I could do more to help. 25158, I would love to hear your story or ways I could get involved to help.

you are not alone, my friend. i too understand. satan desires silence, yet it is our king who gives us a voice! god will vindicate (psalm 26), yet i desire that those who have done such evil will repent and know christ as we have known him... he is so sweet. jesus is our safehouse and refuge. there is no match for his grace. you are madly and wildly loved RJ.

Thank you so much for the beautiful bracelet. Every time I wear it, I will remember R.O. and tell people about the story of the branded collective. There’s truly no greater power than the human spirit and the many survivors of human trafficking are a testament to that. Please know that we are with you in thought and prayer and are humbled by your strength and perseverance. I hope you go into this holiday season a little more merry and bright than even last year as we are all so lucky to keep moving forward each and every day. Cheers and thank you!

I am beyond inspired and thankful to be a part of your journey and healing. I am a survivor of sexual abuse and to hear that there is a way for survivors to encourage each other inspires me so much. You are a beautiful soul and I hope you know that. You are so so strong. Stronger than the evil that has been in your life. You are stronger because of the evil. Thank you for letting me be a part of your healing. God bless you. I will be praying for you every day and night.... Xoxo Grace❤️

Dear PB, I bought your earrings today. I read your story and thought of how God turns ashes into beauty. I thought of how you turned metal into beauty with the wonderful earrings. From Isaiah 61:1-3. The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,     because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,     to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor     and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion— to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness,     a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor.

Born and raised in Nashville, I was among you. I was young and growing older but I was around you. After a traumatic personal experience at 20, my beautiful mother brought me to the Circle at Thistle Farms. Without knowledge of the Branded Collective and its story, my eyes went straight to this cuff I wear religiously by "V". You were hope for me. You were my light. Because freedom is love. Love is blind. Love is timeless. Thank You.

I found this when I was a teenager, going through some things that most girls my age never experienced, and should never go through. It’s always stuck with me. I just wanted to share it. Comes the Dawn After a while you learn the subtle difference Between holding a hand and chaining a soul, And you learn that love doesn't mean leaning And company doesn't mean security, And you begin to understand that kisses aren't contracts And presents aren't promises. And you begin to accept your defeats With your head held high and your eyes open, With the grace of a woman, not the grief of a child. You learn to build your roads On today because tomorrow's ground Is too uncertain for plans, and futures have A way of falling down in midflight. After a while you learn that even sunshine Burns if you get too much. So you plant your own garden and decorate Your own soul, instead of waiting For someone to bring you flowers. And you learn that you can really endure, That you really are strong And you really do have worth And you learn and learn ... and you learn With every goodbye you learn. Veronica Shorffstall, 1971
