I’m happy to be able to blog again about the annual Action Kivu fundraiser, organized by Alissa of Handmade by Alissa. Last year we were able to reach, and slightly surpass!, the goal of $15,000, and this year Alissa hopes to do even better by raising $20,000 for this wonderful cause!
Action Kivu is a nonprofit organization working to help victims of the Congo rebuild their lives. They do this two ways – by providing sewing workshops teaching students to sew, knit and embroider so they can work as seamstresses to provide for their families, and secondly by working with primary schools to fund the education of children affected by the conflict. You can read more about their efforts here.
Let’s all work together to raise money for the women and children who are victims of the conflict in the Congo. Every little bit helps!
As an added incentive, similar to last year, by donating you’ll have a chance to be entered into a drawing for a number of really wonderful prizes! Donating to a worthy cause and having a chance to win a little something – what could be better?! Click here to donate and enter to win one of these great prizes. Please help spread the word and let’s see if together we can reach this goal!
