A Happy Holidays Thank You

Do you feel it? It’s that holiday magic!

At Thistle Farms, there is a special appreciation this sweet season of peace. Our stories of trafficking, prostitution, and addiction were peppered with violence and despair. This fact makes us extra thankful for the difference the entire Thistle Farms community has made in our lives. 

So today we sing Christmas carols. We wear funny Santa hats. We celebrate. We make thousands of candles. And we say thank you.

Thank you to everyone who gave to Thistle Farms on Giving Tuesday. Your gifts, and a matching surprise by dedicated Thistle Farmers John & Fiona Prine, will provide necessities to women in our residential program. End of year gifts can be made here with our deepest gratitude.

Thank you to everyone who has already shared the gift of #LoveHeals by purchasing our natural body and home products and thoughtfully curated gifts from our global department. You help women heal with each purchase. Find our entire line of giftable handmade items here.

Thanks to Jon Acuff for his annual 500 Lights Home campaign. This New York Times Bestselling author of six books is a dear friend to Thistle Farms and champion of empowerment and employment for women survivors. Curious about what 500 Lights Home is all about? It's all here.

Thanks to Katie CouricOprah, Rachael Ray, Good Housekeeping, Women’s Day, and every other publication and gift guide and social media pro who has featured us this year. We’ve gained so many new friends and have widened the circle of love because of you! Click on the names above to read their product endorsements.

Thanks to each person who has visited the Shop and Cafe at Thistle Farms here in Nashville. Offering hospitality to our friends is foundational to our belief that love heals. Plan your pilgrimage to Love Heals HQ!

Thank you, always, for lighting a candle, saying a prayer, or holding a hopeful thought for the next women to come in off the streets. We were each once that woman and our recoveries are the evidence of the good work you do as a part of this community.

Holiday peace to all!
