Hi, we’re Kelly and Shamus. Welcome to the 9fruit store, home of beautiful greeting cards, stationery, wall candy wall decals and jewellery.
We started 9fruit to do one thing, use our skills to be ‘social entrepreneurs’, making the world a better place, one step at a time and fighting for social justice, mainly in the area of human trafficking.
At the beginning, Kelly used her ‘rusty’ old graphic design skills to create heartfelt, wholesome and empowering greeting cards, and later on, journals.
That worked for a while, but we began to realise that in this technological age not everybody likes to buy paper greeting cards or journals, and in order to be sustainable, diversification is important. So we expanded our product range to include wall decals and jewellery (and more to come).
This way, our consumers get a chance to express themselves, beautify their homes, and help the helpless at the same time. 10% of all proceeds goes to our current adopted charity SHE Rescue Home, an aftercare shelter for trafficked and abused Cambodian girls.
A word from SHE:
“SHE Rescue Home is located in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. It is an aftercare shelter which is a safe house for girls aged 5-16 who have been raped, prostituted, trafficked, or at risk. At this Christ-centered home, the girls receive counselling, medical attention, food, clothing, education and vocational training.
We truly appreciate the support of 9fruit and all they do to help the girls in SHE Rescue Home. We are honoured to be able to recommend their products to you which not only raise funds and awareness for SHE but also are heartfelt cards, journals wall decals and jewellery that all can enjoy. Thank you 9fruit for joining with us to make a stand against human trafficking …because ‘It’s Not OK’!!”
