As if I didn’t already love creating, it’s blessing my heart out to use that creativity in ways to provide for the needs of others.
In February, we introduced the Necklace of the Month, which features a new cause each month and a limited edition necklace to benefit the cause. Our February cause was Love146, a non-profit committed to eradicating child trafficking. We raised $220 for the cause and I think that’s a great start (though I hope to do a lot more in the future!).
I have partnered with adopting families by donating items to their auctions since I opened shop back in 2011. But for the first time last month, MERCY iNK joined forces with a fellow DRC adoptive family in a bigger way to help them bring their little ones home. We gave $10 from the sale of this necklace to the family for the month, and I’m super excited to tell you that our grand total was 46 Jeremiah 29 necklaces, for a total donation of $460!
This month’s cause is super personal and I pray y’all will help rally around my sweet friend. Tiffany Eriksen was the WorldHelp employee that led both of the Guatemala trips that I took in October 2012 and July 2013. She has become a dear friend.
And on a leap of faith, in January, she left her home, her people, her possessions to come on staff with Hope of Life International in Zacapa, Guatemala for a full year. Having been to HOL myself, I can attest to the incredible life saving work they are doing in the name of Jesus, including clean water projects, elderly care, baby rescue, orphan care, and care for children with special needs.
Y’all… it’s so awesome to see someone go in the name of Jesus.
We are not all called to drop it all and go, but some are… maybe more than are willing to say yes. And I’m so glad she said yes. She is doing some real good work in one of my favorite places in the world.
Tiffany is raising all of her funding and could use our help!
