Pop-up shops during the Christmas season are not something new. This month, the Redeemer Anglican Church decided to host one that will double as an event to benefit the needy.
Do Good Shop Pop-up at Redeemer Anglican Church
According to their events page, the Redeemer Anglican Church supports a non-profit group called Do Good Shop by putting up a pop-up shop. This will happen on Dec. 5 from 12:30 to 2:00 p.m. at the church’s grounds.
Additionally, the same page said that as the church shows support for the group and their cause, all proceeds will benefit injustice and oppression survivors from the entire day.
Do Good Shop
As per their page, the Do Good Shop is recognized as a non-profit organization that empowers survivors of oppression. Victims of human trafficking, homelessness, modern-day slavery, poverty, and injustice are supported by the group.
Furthermore, the page also mentioned that the group assists in the creation of ethical, living-wage artisan jobs. Their goal is to eradicate oppression, one purchase at a time! All Do Good Shop products are handcrafted by their partner craftsmen, and all profits go to them and their families.
Their page also mentioned that three significant things happen for every purchase made with the Do Good Shop. The first thing is creating global demand for equal and dignified labor.
It also mentioned that this would aid in the ethical employment of traditionally disadvantaged individuals worldwide. It also aids in the alleviation of global poverty by promoting long-term economic growth in vulnerable places.
As per the page, the second aspect is that every purchase is like casting a vote against human trafficking, poverty, slave labor, underage labor, violence, homelessness, and injustice with every dollar spent.
Third, according to the page, participating in the campaign makes people happy! This is due to assisting in providing secure employment and hope for those who have suffered, allowing their lives to be improved.
Redeemer Anglican Church
Meanwhile, as per their page, the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA) includes Redeemer Anglican Church as their member. The ACNA brings together 132,000 Anglicans from 1,004 congregations in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. It is a region of the Anglican Communion, which has 85 million members worldwide. Its Archbishop is the Most Rev. Dr. Foley Beach.
The page also mentioned that the Diocese of Churches for the Sake of Others is their diocese, and its Bishop is The Right Reverend Dr. Todd Hunter. They consider themselves fortunate to be a part of this mission-minded network of ministers, congregations, and leaders that seek to proclaim, embody, and exemplify God's Kingdom.
Furthermore, it mentioned that the C4SO is a network of parishes and leaders structured by regional deaneries, mainly in California, Texas, Kansas, and the Southeast. The NorCal Deanery, a consortium of Bay Area parishes, is Redeemer's regional deanery. Fr. Rob Patterson, their very own Dean, is in charge of the regional deanery.
In addition, the page stated that they believe that God also urges them to participate in a revitalizing action with him. Supporting and partnering with groups that serve God's kingdom aims is one approach Redeemer does this. They are honored to serve alongside the various organizations in their valuable work as a tangible outworking of the Gospel and love for God and neighbor.
