This year, our purchases will be helping to bring clean water and sanitation to the most desperate of families around the world. Together, our 'gifts that give twice' will be helping women in Uganda become self-sustaining so that they and their families might thrive. We will help orphans in Uganda have a better life while they wait for their 'forever home', and we'll help families in Swaziland keep their beloved children out of orphanages until they can financially and emotionally welcome them home. Our gifts will help doctors who are willing to risk it all and serve in desperate and difficult places. Basically, we want to carefully choose amazing handmade gifts for our homes, our loved ones, ourselves...all while being the change we wish to see in the world! Easy Peasy!
