Giving Back


There are some pretty cool people doing really great things for others out there in the blogosphere and I feel compelled to tell you a little bit about these cool projects. Maybe you'll want to help out or maybe they'll inspire you to start your own mission of love.

Firstly, Alissa of Handmade by Alissa is raising money for a great cause called Action Kivu. The funds raised will go to help women and their children in the Congo who are victims of violence. The organization teaches the women to sew, giving them a skill they can use to support themselves and their families. And the money also helps pay for their children's education. Even if you can't donate anything right now, please check out Alissa's blog and this amazing organization.

The second project I found thanks to Green Eyed Silversmith's blog. It's called Iraqi Bundles of Love and this awesome guy organizes sewing care packages to be sent to help Iraqi women. Really, you should check it out!

People out in the world helping other people like this is what it's all about. It makes me rethink my career path for sure. At least I can help out in my own little way.
