I am participating in yet another awesome giveaway hop. This one has a great mission. Each person will be doing a giveaway focusing on a particular charity. My charity is Mercy House Kenya.
I've written about this amazing charity before (and I'll be writing about them again next month). The first time I heard about this charity, I fell in love. Kristen, the founder of Mercy House Kenya, writes a blog about her family called We are THAT family. I love it. In March of 2010, Kristen went to Kenya on a mission with Compassion International focusing on helping the children living in slums. There she learned about the horrific cases of back-alley abortions and the mistreatment of young women and girls in Kenya. She couldn't come home and not do something about it, so she founded Mercy House. Mercy House is a home for young women and girls who become pregnant. They receive healthcare, schooling, and receive a stipend when they leave to help them start new lives. You can read more about them here.
There are many ways that you can help these women, girls, and babies. You can pray for them. You can give your time and money. You can share their stories with others. You can visit them and help. You can even shop at their store.
As part of their schooling while living at Mercy House, the girls learn various crafts. This helps them to become self-sufficient so that when they leave, they have a craft that they can sell. They make beautful necklaces, bracelets, placemats, and gorgeous ornaments.
So that is what I will be giving away. You can choose from either the bird mobile above or the heart-shaped ornament seen below. In order to win, just fill out the rafflecopter form below. Good luck!
