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

 

We are all Bound For Freedom. We desire freedom; freedom from oppression, freedom from corruption, from conformity, physical limitations, addictions, depression, poverty, financial debt and countless other circumstances holding us back from our true potential.

As a business and movement we sell fair trade products and social justice merchandise, 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 made at B4F directly supports causes and organizations we have sought partnership with; whether giving sex trafficking survivors safe outlets to work in, giving impoverished communities sustainable jobs or helping build wells and schools in developing nations, every product sold moves to equip others toward freedom.
