Saving lives is not a trend, it's a lifestyle...

 

We are all bound for freedom. In some form another, we desire freedom; Freedom from oppression, freedom from corrupt societies, from conformity, physical limitations, addictions, depression, poverty, financial debt and a slew of other ideas holding us back from our true potential.

As a business and marketplace, we are committed to the pursuit of holistic freedom by selling fair trade products & social justice merchandise, redemptive artwork, nutritional products, all with one purpose in mind -- To combat and raise awareness of global, local and national issues of injustice that plague our world today.

Every purchase that is made from B4F goes directly to helping and supporting a cause we have selected to partner with. Whether it is giving sex trafficking victims a safe outlet and sustainable job or child soldiers rehabilitation opportunities, every product sold moves to equip others toward freedom.
