an urgent need

Last night, I got an email that broke my heart. But let me go back just a bit...

If you've been here for a while, you've heard about my passion for the ministry of World Vision. One of the projects that has been especially important to me is their Caregiver Kits. Through my shop and blog sponsorship, in the past, we've raised money to pack a total of 75 of these life-giving kits. Whenever we do it, I am touched by people's generosity, not to mention the caregivers who give so much of their own lives to help others.

Back to the email. The supply of kits is extremely low, and World Vision is seeking people to get more kits put together. They are even matching donations, so for every kit built, they'll send supplies for a second kit. The moment I read that, I knew we needed to do something.

So, until the end of May, 100% of my shop profits and 100% of sponsorship ad funds will go to making World Vision Caregiver Kits. 100%! If you've been thinking of making a purchase, now's the time to do it.

There are a lot of things planned for the blog between now and the end of the month, but added into all of that will be updated on this project. I'm so excited to see what we can do in this short time! Thanks so much for your help in supporting this amazing cause!


  1. I dont know how much I can purchase but I could help provide things for the kits, would you get in touch with me asap?! I love nothing more than doing good for others.


    THANKS! & you are wonderful person for doing so many kind things.

  2. Wow! How very generous of you! World Vision is very dear to our hearts as well. I'm hopping over to the shop.

  5. This is awesome!! I'm gonna have to find some money to get some of the stuff I've been wanting for a while!
