~ getting closer ~
These girls have two more Fridays until they excitedly showcase their skill and creativity with some beautiful pieces they've mindfully crafted - they are so ready, I tell you. On the short list so far, silk scarves, beaded bookmarks, collage word art and Sculpey miniatures. All proceeds go toward community requested initiatives to provide food, water and education in their areas. We like to make sure the organizations we work with are supporting these desires and not part of unwanted change in the communities they serve. The world of humanitarian support is sometimes a tricky one and we try to be part of a solution rather than the problem. More on that another day though.
For now? These girls - oh my, are they hard workers. And ready to spread some love far and wide in the world? Most definitely.
