Bags of stones…

Posted by on Feb 19, 2017 in FAMILY | 0 comments

My sister is very creative. She is also a fatalistic primary school teacher.IMG_1356
And a pretty fantastic sister and person.
She makes beautifully numbered and lettered stones for children for play and learning.
They are beautiful to look at and to hold.
And really fun to use.
My sister invited me to make cotton drawstring bags to sell with the stones.
Great idea!
This has become another fundraiser.
Sales of bags go directly to The Candles,our family of 18 HIV orphan cousins in Uganda.
Bag sales help pay their school frees,
buy seeds for their food production gardens,
provide start up money for small family businesses.

Thanks, Sister!
You really get how going to school changes kids’ lives here…and everywhere.
