CashForPurses.com is partnering with New York City based Nomi Network to launch an awareness-raising collaboration called “Cash for Purses, NOT SLAVES.” Nomi Network, a fair trade, certified nonprofit organization, focuses on providing sustainable job opportunities for survivors and women at risk of human trafficking to help combat one of the main causes: abject poverty.
Nomi Network gives these vulnerable women an opportunity to gain valuable skill sets as well as earn income. Co-Founder and President Diana Mao says, “A lot of our women in India are already opening up savings accounts as well as sending their children to school and really making an impact on their communities.
Limited edition gift
As part of an ongoing campaign, CashForPurses.com will be gifting limited edition, co-branded Cash For Purses and Nomi Network handbags to its first 200 customers at the beginning of every month. “At CashForPurses.com, we are always looking for ways to help get the word out for worthy causes. We feel so honored to partner with Nomi Network and to support the great work they’re doing worldwide,” says Trent Silver, founder of Cash For Purses.
As part of the awareness campaign, Silver will also be serving on Nomi Network’s Young Executive Board (YEB). The Nomi Network Young Executive Board provides an opportunity for young professionals to volunteer their time and expertise through outreach, fundraising and general support for Nomi Network programs (Train the Trainer, Capacity Building and Market Access Programs).
Join the fight
Nomi Network invites companies to join them in the fight against human trafficking by providing corporate sponsorship opportunities. Other ways to help include purchasing the Buy Her Bag Not Her Body and Made For A Better Life products, hosting an event or sales party, or making a tax deductible donation that supports Nomi’s programs to empower women in India and Cambodia.
The U.S. State Department and Walmart are two of the generous Nomi Network partners who are taking a stand to create more training and job opportunities for vulnerable women. In 2012, Nomi secured orders from Walmart and now has products in the company’s e-commerce store.

Retail partners are crucial to the growth of Nomi Network and to the organization’s goal to create 100,000 jobs for women at risk or survivors of human trafficking.
