From each sale of an item, the artisans—who are hearing-impaired or otherwise disabled or disadvantaged—can afford to buy precious commodities such as food, clothing, shelter, and education. Each earring measures 3 inches long. Packaged in a black velvet box.
About this Artisan
In the Middle East, people with disabilities are often forced to become "takers," looking for handouts. Glad Tidings provides dignity for its artisans as they earn a living to provide for themselves and their families. When asked about her hope for the future, one artisan shared, "I don't dream about my future. I dream about the future of my kids. I dream that one day they will be able to get a college education!" For the unloved and rejected, Glad Tidings continues to bring hope and love.
