Designs on helping

A South Surrey small business owner raised more than $3,000 in one night to help fight human trafficking.

Ingrid Kandal, owner of home-decor store Poshshop, organized the private Nov. 14 event to raise money for Freedom Stones, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to ending human trafficking.

Freedom Stones trains young girls in jewelry making, to help keep them away from the extreme poverty that could make them vulnerable to human trafficking.

Kandal also added a sample piece of jewellery made by the girls helped by Freedom Stone at Poshshop.
