GIVEAWAY CLOSED Think Humanity: More than just a GIVEAWAY!


**GIVEAWAY CLOSED**
Anyone notice the new Think Humanity info
that has been sitting in my sidebar for a few days?





I was introduced to Think Humanity around October of 2010.
I was shopping for my sister in law a Christmas gift. I knew that she had a special place in her heart for Uganda. She got to visit Uganda while in college, and the people there tugged on her heart strings in more ways than one. Now, she and her husband sponsor 3 kiddos through Compassion. They send them letters and goodies, but most importantly they sponsor them financially. 


I was on etsy, and I simply searched "Uganda" with sister Tara in mind.
That was when I was bonded with this amazing organization, Think Humanity.
I read the mission:
"Think Humanity provides rent, utilities, medication 
and school supplies to teenage girl refugees by renting 
a hostel 50 miles away from the refugee camp.




Think Humanity has also provided other services in 
refugee camps such as; distributing birthing kits to expectant 
mothers, giving shoes to refugee children, helping 
individual secondary students with their education, mosquito 
nets distributions and medical treatment at the 
Think Humanity Health Centre in Hoima, Uganda."


I knew that Tara would appreciate this gift. 
I purchased a bracelet that provided a mosquito net to a family in Uganda. 

Little did I know that her husband was planning a surprise trip for her to UGANDA! They went back in January and got to meet their Compassion Kids!

Aren't I blessed to have such an amazing, mission-minded Bro & Sis in law?
If these pictures touched your heart, and you want to help support the people in Uganda head on over to Think Humanity's etsy shop and make a purchase. All of the beads are handmade by Ugandan women out of recycled paper. 
"Think Humanity has partnered with a group of 
women from Uganda that live in the Acholi Quarter 
Camp for Internally Displaced Persons. We personally 
know these women. We are not simply purchasing jewelry 
in local shops or at the airport like many do. These 
women are making beads to help earn family income 
and sustain a community financed food-aid program for 
their children. We purchase the jewelry from them and 
they benefit, but then we sell in the USA at a reasonable 
profit. 100% of the money then goes back to help with T
hink Humanity projects. It will then benefit those 
refugees displaced from war-affected countries living 
in Uganda in refugee settlement camps."
