David Nail FIGHTER Series: Brenda Survivor Story

This FIGHTER story features Brenda, an incredible woman who has overcome her addictions though the love of The Magdalene House and Thistle Farms. Through its residential and social enterprise programs, Thistle Farms is a sanctuary for healing for women survivors of abuse, addiction, trafficking and prostitution.

By hand, the women of Thistle Farms make natural bath and body products that are good for the earth and for the body. They use premium, natural ingredients to create products that offer healing to themselves and the world. The women of Thistle Farms become specialists in the areas of manufacturing, inventory, book keeping, sales and office administration. Thistle Farms products are available in their store online as well as over 450 stores across the country (find a store here).

“We are a community of survivors, advocates, employees, interns, volunteers, and friends from all across the world. We are young and old, women and men. We want to change a culture that still allows human beings to be bought and sold. We believe that in the end, love is the strongest force for change in the world.” – Thistle Farms
