You might not think twice about what you wear to bed, but a new line of pajamas is on a mission to help women who have lived through a nightmare: human trafficking.
The International Princess Project was founded by Shannon Keith, who took a trip to India that opened her eyes to a tragedy that was occurring daily to women and girls throughout the country. After visiting one of India’s many red light districts and witnessing the horrors of modern day slavery, she was forever changed and went on to launch her collection with the purpose of creating pathways to freedom for women escaping the world of sex trafficking.
The chic pajamas, or “punjammies” as Keith calls them, offer a fair wage and a fresh start for these women. The IPP teaches women a new skill (sewing) and offers them both a place to heal, and a well-paying job producing quality sleep & loungwear. The punjammies retail for $25 to $40 at intlprincess.org, and, we might add, they make PERFECT Mother’s Day gifts.
