45 days. {giveaway}

45 days to reach our goal.

45 days to raise enough money to save lives. 1 BILLION people do not have access to clean water.

45 days to fund a project that will help women and children spend less time walking miles and miles for {dirty} water, which will enable them to spend their time being educated and bringing in income for their family.

45 days to make their days so much better and brighter.

I’ve been thinking and thinking of ways to raise money for these people, how to give these children a chance at life. Besides just running. I have channeled my inner-crafter-that-i-never-knew-i-had. I’m making things. Pretty things. {of course, even if you don’t like pretty things, you can just simply donate here}

Like these bracelets:

and these cute bobbies:

The bracelets are made of jersey knit and are currently available in aqua, chocolate brown, black, and camouflage. {note: camo is only printed on one side of fabric, so their is a mixture of white in the bracelets, but I personally think it adds to it and I love}.

The bobby pins will come in a set of 2… colors and sizes will be a surprise! Variety of circle, square, and heart buttons {turquoise, pink, brown} on a flowery cut-out from a vintage dictionary!

Or maybe you would like a simple charity: water bracelet. Black with white lettering.


Last, but not least, let me tell you about Ariah Fine. He is a father of two and has a mission of teaching children who have the privilege of clean water more about those who do not. To serve this purpose, Ariah wrote the children’s book Clean Water for Elirose. He donates the profits from all sales directly to clean water projects. He first contacted me when my son, Bridger, gave up Christmas to fund a water well. We have been in touch ever since, and he is working with me to sell his books and the profits will go to our campaign! Read more about Ariah on the charity: water blog. These books would make great gifts to the children in your life, teachers, and libraries!

    Maybe nobody has entered for the same reason as me.  Nothing willl let me right click and copy and paste.  This is the third time I’ve been here and tried.  I thought it was me, but maybe not.  I’m definitely donating and buying, I just need to get the links.
