Tis the Season

Happy Friday. Do you participate in end of the year missions giving? There are many rewards to yearly charitable donations. You might want to consider donating money in honor of your family and friends for Christmas presents. Here are a few organizations that we know and love:

http://www.fistulafoundation.org/

It is also a great time of year to donate to your denomination's mission causes.

A few weekends back I bought a gorgeous, one of a kind, hand made scarf for $20. It's a bargain and is the original work of artist Cindy Clark. You can email her to purchase your own for yourself or a gift at: chc717@juno.com

If your friends and loved ones are asking you for gift ideas, check out the resource page on the Impulse website: http://www.impulsecommunity.com/recommendedreading.htm

Hi friends! Thanks for the awesome links. Any chance you might have a few more fair trade websites to share? We have this great fair trade store in town that I absolutely LOVE, but I'd love to check out some more of your favs...

Great question Mandy! Here are some ideas:

Have you seen the baskets at Macy's that are made by women in Rwanda? I know they sell them in one of their Atlanta stores.

I love the Go Red campaign where 50% of profits goes to the Global Fund to help eliminate AIDS in Africa.
