Houses for Haiti- Update and Giveaways!

First, I want to thank those of you who have contributed to our Houses for Haiti campaign! We've raised over $750 and are  almost half of the way to our goal of $1600. We're that much closer to being able to build a house for a homeless Haitian family. Please consider joining this great project.
This week I have a couple of items that were donated to help raise money... I feel a tel-a-thon coming on! Any of these would make a great gift for someone or a nice treat for you! 

This is a super cute vintage style apron in a whimsical butterfly print with coordinating aqua trim.  It's made of soft cotton and ties around the back and at the neck.

This is available for a donation of $25 or more.

Bracelets made by Apparent Project Artisans in Haiti. These are made with hand-rolled paper beads and are on elasticized cord. Fun and funky!
Each bracelet is available for your donation of $10 or more.

This is a great cotton tote bag that is perfect for groceries, library books, clothing, diapers,  or just about anything. It's made of sturdy cotton and is fully lined and reversible. There are several pockets as well! I have one of these bags and get compliments on it often. (This was also donated and made by my sister Alyssa.)
Bag available for a donation of $20 or more.

If you would like to receive one of these items in return for your donation, please click on the Chipin Widgit above. You will be taken directly to The Apparent Project's secure paypal page. Then come back and leave me a comment letting me know what you would like and I will get it to you. Again, thanks for your help and please keep the people of Haiti in your prayers!

    Everything is made with love....I will gladly accept any of the gifts. I do love a good coffee, though!

  4. We heard a native Haitian missionary this Summer share on just this issue-housing is so critical there! I love you for doing this and am glad to help, even though its a small amount of $40, God can break and distribute it. If you have another yard sale, let me know-I can find items to contribute, too!


I love hearing from you and try to respond to your comments here on the page.
