THE STORY:

Starfish Project is a globally respected social enterprise that has helped more than 100 women out of sexually exploitive situations by giving them alternative employment making jewelry and leadership opportunities to help run the Project’s business operations.  In 2006 Starfish began with five women working around a table in an apartment and has expanded to offering employment and holistic care services in three different cities in Asia. Our jewelry is now sold in more than 60 boutiques and throughout a network of Advocates in North America.

Why We Are Here:

After successfully developing a business model and holistic care program, Starfish Project is now expanding in order to help even more women. The funds raised through this Crowdrise Expansion campaign will be used to accelerate production and expand its services and operational capabilities.

Our Objective:

“The more money we raise, the more jewelry we can sell into larger chains. That lets us save more women, which is always our goal.” - Jenny McGee, Founder and CEO.

Your donation through this Expansion Campaign will provide the funds to help Starfish Project expand, hire more women, and provide them with the tools to empower themselves.

Other Ways to Support Starfish Project:

1. Become an Advocate of Hope

Starfish Project has an independent sales program that allows women to hold house parties and sell jewelry with her friends and earn 25% commission.

2. Visit the Starfish Store online and purchase jewelry
