We were connected to a volunteer coffee barista who was also a direct service provider at Freedom Place.  We were able to hand deliver this box of cards to her & the cards were directly delivered to the girls who were living at Freedom Place at that time. The girls made is thank you cards and sent them back to us, thanking us for the cards we made for them.

The girls at FP were also inspired by the cards we made for them & made cards for survivors at a sister ministry safe-house in another country!
How we feel about how this started, and where it is going…..
“FIGHT SONG” by Rachel Platten
“This is my fight song
Take back my life song
Prove I’m alright song
My power’s turned on
(Starting right now) I’ll be strong
I’ll play my fight song
And I don’t really care if nobody else believes
‘Cause I’ve still got a lot of fight left in me”.
STAY TUNED….We’ve got so much more to tell you about.

Just a little bit about us….

Written On Your Heart exists to unite & engage the community to encourage & inspire survivorship.

We make homemade cards to encourage and inspire individuals on their healing journey who are human trafficking survivors.
WOYH started at “A Second Cup” Coffee Shop in Houston, Texas – by a college student (and a friend) with a huge heart, even bigger dreams, a low budget to work with, a pen and some paper.
