14 December, 2008

This weekend was a lot more laid back than last weekend. Partly due to "monkey" being sick and partly due to the boys going camping. So us girls hung out this weekend!! I did manage to go to a Tastefully Simple party at my friend Jaci's house! This wasn't just any party. She and her consultant are donating a percentage of profits/hostess gifts to "blankets for China"! China just had that devistating earthquake not too long ago and the children are cold! So many of my friends have adopted from China so it becomes personal for so many! You can read more about this effort and her partnership with KidsLake at my friend Brandi's site! This girl has a HUGE heart and deep passion for Africa and abroad!! You can also read about the need and donate right on her site. What a great way to spread the "warmth of Jesus" this holiday season!! Everyone is donating and raising money in their own way! I got some tastefully simple products, which I love, and donated to warm some bodies!!

I know this is a lot of "links" and little information, but trust me-- this gal and these links can explain things so much better than me trying to blunder my way through them!! Please take some time to check them out!
Hope you all had a great weekend!!

    Great idea! It's so easy to get wrapped up in your own stuff that you forget who is suffering out there. Thanks for the reminder. Jessica

    I love when people donate proceeds to help people! I will check out both of those sites! I think that giving is a great way to show Jesus' light during the Christmas season!
