November Update

African Child In Need
We are excited to announce our partnership with African Child In Need in Nangalama, Uganda. The people living in this village do not have jobs. They rely on a small garden to plant and harvest to sustain their family. Last year the region was hit by droughts. Because of this, no crops were harvested this year and the people are starving to death. There is no electricity and no health care in the village. This is the future of the children without an education. Parents living in this village are not able to afford to send their children to school to get the life saving education. they so desperately need to improve their future. African Child In Need exclusively targets these families for their school. They run one of the top ranked schools in their district. We debuted 5 of their students in early October and four of them have already been fully funded. Because they were funded so quickly we committed to raise the funds for 10 more students! Each one only needs $128 to start their next year of education. You can learn more about them and donate here:

Mujeres del Plumo
While we were in Nicaragua this summer, we met a group of women who make jewelry out of seeds. The profits are used to support their families and buy school supplies for the children of the village. You can read their amazing story here: We are going to be selling their jewelry on our website this Christmas season. This beautiful handcrafted jewelry will make a great present or stocking stuffer. By purchasing this jewelry you are not only helping to support the women and children of this village, but also the students on our website. All profits we make off the sale of the jewelry goes to help the students on our site attend school. It's the gift that gives back. You can check out the store here:

Giving Tuesday
We have Black Friday, Cyber Monday and now Giving Tuesday. Together, people are creating a new ritual for our annual calendar. Giving Tuesday is the opening day of the giving season: a reminder of the reason for the season. This giving season, (November 1-December 31) we have a goal to raise $1000 to help put our students through school. Just like always, 100% of all donations go directly to our students. You can help us reach our goal in several ways.

  1.  Donate to a student on our website. Donations of all size make a difference
  2. Send cash or checks in the mail. This will be applied to whichever student needs the funds first unless you specify otherwise. Our address is P.O. Box 4561, St Augustine, Florida 32085
  3. Purchase the Mujeres del Plumo jewelry from our website. Every dollar made from this jewelry will count towards our goal.
  4. Hold a Facebook fundraiser on our behalf. (Make sure to tag us in it so we can help promote it.)

We believe this is going to be our best season yet. Were looking to end our first year with a band. Please consider helping us reach our goal!
