HEROES WITHOUT CAPES - Interview with I R.E.I.G.N. Tuesday night 9/20/16

HEROES WITHOUT CAPES - Interview with I R.E.I.G.N. 
Tuesday night 9/20/16 - 5 pm Pacific / Arizona Time - 8 pm Eastern

I am so excited and honored to be interviewed by Minister Annie Bell on Tuesday evening. Please listen in, 5 pm Pacific/AZ time, 8 pm Eastern (and anything in between, it's up to you to figure out the time, LOL!) Here's the link to open in a new window: https://lnkd.in/eYiNaxw "TOPIC: HEROES WITHOUT CAPES is a new series we started to spotlight heroes in out communities who are using their God-given gifts and talents to further the movement to stop abuse and abolish sex trafficking. Heather Kirk is one of those heroes. Join us LIVE this Tuesday at 8pm Eastern Time to hear her inspirational story."

Listen on-line https://lnkd.in/eYiNaxw

Minister Annie Bell (http://www.anniebellministries.com/) explains that her term I R.E.I.G.N. stands for Victorious Lifestyle brand that encompasses a radio talk show, books, blog, resources and other vehicles by which to aid in the empowerment of survivors as well as prevention of abuse. It was inspired God and designed to help survivors to:
IDENTIFY as a Survivor, no longer a victim
RECLAIM their lives,
EXCEL at living,
ILLUMINATE the dark,
GROW in Christ and
NURTURE themselves and others

Please consider purchasing pieces from my clothing collection or my art. 20 % of my income goes to non-profits to prevent and intervene in sex trafficking and more. It is my deepest heart's desire to make a difference in this evil stronghold. 

Sales of this image goes to protect mustangs through support of Return to Freedom Wild Horse Sanctuary in Lompoc, California. It graces several pieces of clothing at http://shopvida.com/collections/heather-j-kirk. Art, home decor, beach towels, phone cases and more with a variety of wild horses, also protecting Salt River Reservation horses in Arizona can be found at  http://heather-kirk.pixels.com/collections/wild+horses+and+mustangs

The Asian fruit Rambutan is found on the Sleeveless Top (above), Modern Tee, and newly offered Tote Bag! It can be found here: http://shopvida.com/collections/heather-j-kirk  Through images sold of the Southeast Asian countries Thailand (Rambutan), Cambodia and Indonesia (photos of Bali), I donate 20% to programs administered by World Vision International that intervene and prevent sex trafficking, as well as in the very country the photo was taken. One of the programs they offer is "Hope for Sexually Exploited Girls".

Art, home decor, phone cases, etc from Southeast Asia can be found at http://aec.pixels.com/

I also donate to a Eternally Cherished which operates in the Dominican Republic with Orphans and rural women facing poverty and at risk for being involved in sex tourism, even children by force, or older teens and women (and almost surely boys and men, given what we know about the problem internationally) by what they may see as their only "choice" for survival or escape. See more about the programs at www.eternallycherished.org

"Two Seaweed Mounds" Sleeveless Top (and a scarf and tote bag) can be found at  http://shopvida.com/collections/heather-j-kirk "In the Palm of His Hand" (on the wall behind mannequin) can be found at http://heather-kirk.pixels.com/collections/dominican+republic+republica+dominicana?page=2 There are three pages worth of Dominican Republic images!

For the clothing collection, here's some special codes (time limited, expires September 26, 2016)

The Art + Autumn Event

20% off $100+ (use code Autumn20) 30% off $300+ (use code Autumn100) 40% off $1200+ (use code Autumn500)

If you purchase something, please let me know what move you to do so! Every website has a way to contact me.
Finally, please pray, my friends, that God fills my mouth with His words and His plan. I want to live out God's purposes for my life. Perhaps in talking it through I will find some answers for myself that I still seek, but I want to help others find their purposes through listening. 

Thank you and AMEN!

Excited for my first sale! Sleeveless blouse with Rambutan on Shop Vida Heather J Kirk

I am excited to share with you the sale of my first piece of clothing from the Heather J Kirk Fashion Collection at shopVIDA ... "Rambutan" on a sleeveless blouse.

I would love to hear from you if you have purchased my art or VIDA clothing. The websites honor your privacy, so revealing the “secret” is your choice. But if you do so choose, I have surprises for random buyers! Message me using this site’s options.

VIDA is a Google Venture (HOW COOL IS THAT!) backed eCommerce platform that gives artists a chance to share their beautiful art with a global market by means of a fashion collection.  This collaboration of designers and makers around the world creates original, inspiring and high quality apparel in a socially conscious  and eco-friendly way – only what is ordered is made, makers are taught literacy and math skills. The buyer receives luxurious, made to order, unique high end clothing that will make a difference and make them stand out in a crowd as a trend setter.

Rambutan and Other Fruit on  Floating Market at Damnoen Saduak Thailand

When you purchase art or clothing by Heather J Kirk or by Abundant Eight Creative of Thailand, Abundant Eight Creative will donate 20% of purchase price  to World Vision programs specifically in Thailand  preventing and fighting human trafficking, child trafficking and the sex trade. As artists and creatives we at AEC believe in cause marketing and are honored to be a part of a commercial co-venture project with World Vision International.

Professional, archival-quality prints are available on a variety of mediums: photo paper, canvas or art print (watercolor paper), metal or acrylic mount. All are beautiful, but my preference for this particular piece is photo paper or acrylic mount. In addition there are beautiful products like throw pillows, duvet covers, tote bags, phone cases, shower curtains and note cards. Licensing of images for products and promotions is also available.

Can be shipped internationally. Shipping price is separate, based on the preferred size and the destination for your new piece of art.
