​​​​​Thistle Farms is a community of ​​women who have survived prostitution, human trafficking & addiction.  


It includes a residential program for survivors, plus an education & outreach program for the public. Monday "Lunch & Learn"  tours are available.


Their social enterprises include a Bath & Body Care line, ​Shared Trade Global Marketplace, the Thistle Stop Cafe & The  Studios Workshop.

Thistle Farms Mission:

​Founded in 1997 by the Rev. Becca Stevens, Thistle Farms in Nashville, TN operates a residential program providing referrals & case management for up to 700 women a year, including up to 150 Thistle Farm graduates, 30 full time residents & 6 inmates participating in "Magdalene on the Inside".


On average women range in age from 20-50, were first sexually abused between ages 7-11, have been arrested 100 times & have spent 12 years on the street prostituting.

 

Nail Show, Education, Products & Nail Companies!

With human trafficking so prevalent within our nail industry, plus both Thistle Farms & our show being based in Tennessee, it seemed like a natural fit to adopt them as our charitable cause.


We feel our fundraising & monetary donations will make a more substantial impact in women's lives right here in our community. ​​

The 2018 prizes donated had a total value of $850!
