Who does your organization benefit/serve?

Sozo Children supports vulnerable children in Uganda, Africa and Sozo Trading Co. is making an impact in the Avondale & surrounding communities and the city of Birmingham (homeless shelters, displaced families, other community groups that need assistance in clothing & furniture.)

What makes your organization unique?

We are making an international impact through Sozo Children, but also vastly impacting the city of Birmingham though Sozo Trading Co. Sozo Trading Co. is centered in Avondale and impacts the community through organizational partnerships, volunteer opportunities, and building lasting relationships with the residents of our city. Our relational based approach constructs an environment where people can truly feel safe and welcomed. People not only come to our store to shop but come to feel loved by our staff, to fellowship & to even get a hug from a friendly, familiar face. Sozo Trading Co. has been incredibly fortunate to have hundreds of volunteers from our community offering their time and resources to create this amazing space. We have been blessed with an overwhelming amount of donations which allows us to serve the homeless, those who have lost homes to do fire, families who have start over and programs who resettle individuals back into the community. All sales through Sozo Trading goes back to support our mission at Sozo Children, which is saving vulnerable children in need.

Tell us why your organization deserves to win Uptick’s Marketing Magic City Makeover Competition!

Like most non-profits, we have such a limited budget and most of the time marketing gets pushed to the side because we want to focus on the needs of taking care of our kids. Above everything we must make sure that our children’s needs are met and they are not without, putting off projects for down the road.
