An Update from NightLight

Annie Dieselberg, one of NightLight’s founders, posted this update on her Facebook today:

Another woman came to apply for work today. She wants to quit working nights so she can raise her three kids. She left her husband because of his drug and gambling addiction. Tears came to her eyes when she said, “they’ve lost their daddy; I don’t want them to lose their mom.” Hired on faith. Where are the jewelry sales these days? that part that has to get out of faith and into action – but how? Spread the word.

Is this story a tear-jerker?

Well, the reality is that her story is not unique.

I met almost one hundred women at NightLight, and many more still in the bars, with stories very similar to this young woman.

Women just muddling along trying to do their best.

Women working simply so that their children can hopefully get a better education and have a better life.

The reality is, my friends, that if this woman’s story tugged at your heart, you would be unbearably broken under the weight of the stories of the other thousands of women working in the Nana area.

Just because you haven’t met them, you don’t know their names and you haven’t heard their stories doesn’t make them any less real.

When a girl is strong enough to seek escape, humbled enough to beg for a job, it is hard to even consider turning her down.

And yet, the reality is that without sales, NightLight is unable to provide salaries for their workers, and is therefore unable to continue hiring new women in search of new life.

It’s that simple.

You buy jewelry.

A girl is offered a new chance at life.

Just because you haven’t met them, you don’t know their names and you haven’t heard their stories doesn’t make them any less real.

You can have a direct impact on the life of a very real and beautiful person on the other side of the world right now.

By purchasing NightLight jewelry, you are contributing directly to the salaries of the women who work there now, and those who will hopefully be joining them in the very near future.

You can find the NightLight store online here.

Please.

Make a difference today.

Just because you haven’t met them, you don’t know their names and you haven’t heard their stories doesn’t make them any less real.
