Crafting for a Cause

Lately our girls have been quite busy ... as soon as we told them the news about adopting they began brainstorming fundraising ideas. It didn't take long for them to put those plans into action - friends joined in and so far they have raised hundreds of dollars on their own.

It all started with a bracelet fundraiser - those rubber band bracelets which are all the rage. That morphed into friendship bracelets made with a loom - with an added charm. Originally the rubber band bracelets were boxed up - the boxes became so popular that now they make the boxes and sell those separately. From there - we have headbands and hair ties made from stretchy seam binding ribbon {an Anthropologie knockoff}. And now, little paper purses with minature candy bars inside. Friends have been making hand sewn cats, hand drawn pictures, and candy bags. They have sold their items at school, in their neighborhood's, to friends and family both near and far.

Many of the sweet children helping with these fundraisers have never even met Miranda but, want to help. This is just another way we have been blessed so far on our adoption journey.
