It's almost Mother's Day, coincidental with a show of Teacher Appreciation at school year's end. Who needs more STUFF? Give a gift that every mother will cherish, a gift like no other, a gift that will help change the world. Same for teachers. No hand lotion or potted plant ever gave a poor child a future!
Our alternative gift cards are especially meaningful in this time of global pandemic and civil war in Ethiopia. We're focusing on our work in Lalibela, Ethiopia, because the economy there has totally collapsed. They are in dire need of food & help to keep their children in school. In addition, thousands of refugees from nearby war-torn Tigray have come to Lalibela. They have lost everything, including loved ones and all their land. We're sending money for food just to sustain them until they can get back on their feet. No other service organization besides Harambee has a presence in the area. And...100% of your donation gets where it's needed most. A donation of $20 gets you a beautiful handmade gift card to give to mom, someone you want to acknowledge on Mother's day, or a teacher. See photos of the card insides & outsides below. Contact us & we'll get your order in the mail pronto. Pay at the yellow donate button on the right, or send a check. Bless you for your compassion towards those who, only by accident, have been dealt a very tough hand in life.
AND...there's more! The war refugees don't really want a handout. They need a hand UP to support themselves. So...we're also offering Mother's Day cards and Teacher Appreciation cards to fund a poultry project. This will provide eggs for the children, a source of perfect nutrition, and chickens to sell for income. And of course there will be lots more baby chix, ensuring sustainability. See below for pictures of these cards. And...thank you. Moms & teachers will thank you, too. Whoever got chickens in Africa as a gift?! Wahoo, whatta world!
