As promised; A GIVE-AWAY!
Timbali Shoulder Bag~ padded shoulder straps, magnetic snap closure, inside side pocket for essentials (cell phone, keys, chapstick!)
These super-cool bags are more than an accessory!
They are made by women in Swaziland, really really poor women. These women then volunteer their time at feeding care points in Swaziland to feed thousands of orphans. Why are there so many orphans in Swaziland, you ask?
Well, Swaziland has the highest AIDS rate in the world and the average life-span is under 35. You can imagine if all most of the adults 35 and older are dead---that leaves a tremendous amount of children that are without parents. Many of these children are HIV+ as well. Timbali Crafts was started to give these women an income as well as spiritual nourishment which is also passed on to the orphans they care for. Here is their website: Timbalicrafts.org
There is a tag on each purse. On this tag, the lady who made the purse has written her name. Most of the bios can be found on the Timbali Crafts website.
Here is the bio of the lady who made the purse featured in this Give-Away:
A widowed mother of ten.
Giving her time to others. wow!
Our prayer group has been so blessed to have partnered with these women!
I am doing this give-away to raise awareness for this amazing organization so please join me and send lots of people this way! To read about how our prayer group partnered with Timbali, click HERE:
