We absolutely love seeing Storenvy stores open shop that have a charitable reason or purpose. One of the most powerful aspects of Storenvy is the ability for absolutely anyone to open a shop for any reason. With over 11,000 stores and growing we have seen stores open up for a large variety of reasons. Some stores open up shop as hobby, a creative outlet, a full-time business or simply for a way to raise money for a cause, charity or belief. This week we wanted to highlight some Storenvy stores that have launched with the purpose of helping others or a specific cause. Each day this week we will be featuring three items from a charitable store on the frontpage of Storenvy.com. To help give a little more insight into each of these stores we outlined the week below and given some more information as to mission behind each store. Please take a second t check out each one of these stores and their cause and if you are feeling so kind please help them in their mission by either purchasing a product from their store or simply sharing a link to their store with your friends.

Also by just “liking” their Facebook page they will donate 1 meal to ThinkHumanity.org.

In 2007, a group of student photojournalists embarked on a journey through 20+ nations on every inhabitable continent, motivated by their love for photography and their passion for justice. At the outset, their experiences seemed diverse, even random. However, a common thread of human suffering would soon emerge as their travels exposed them to a dark, seldom discussed side of humanity— children being bought and sold to satisfy the sexual pleasures of other humans.
Upon returning to the United States the students produced a book called Sex+Money: A Global Search for Human Worth. This collection of photographs and stories explores the realities of human trafficking and offers readers a global perspective on the consequences of abusing two of the most powerful forces in the world: sex and money.While researching to write their book, the young journalists were shocked to discover that the same injustice was happening on their own soil. Currently, across America, between 100,000 and 300,000 minors are being sexually exploited. Meanwhile, most Americans are oblivious to this staggering truth. As a result, what started as a Global Search for Human Worth became a National Search for Human Worth.
