There are several blogs that I “follow” and read whenever they are updated. One of them is Girly Girl Giveaways.
A couple nights ago there was a post about a woman named Holly on the blog, who is looking to adopt a sweet girl from China. I am a firm believer that if you can provide for a child you should be able to help save that child from an orphanage, but unfortunately it is not that easy and can be a HUGE expense.
Instead of just soliciting donations, Holly has some amazing jewelry from Uganda that she is selling to help raise money to bring a little girl home to her family. She is selling necklaces for $20, bracelets for $5 and earrings for $5 a pair. The bracelets are made up of beads made out of rolled up newspapers and are SO colorful! Not only will you be helping this family bring Elaina home to them, but you will be helping to save the environment by buying a great jewelry item made out of recycled materials!
I purchased myself a bracelet and can’t wait to get it. To find out more about the fundraiser and the family, check out their blog – A Purpose Driven Life
