Books4Bonkhe Handmade Journal

17 Mar, 2010 by in world vision 13 comments

Todays’ St. Patty’s Day Parade starts off with a handmade journal by: Books4Bonkhe which. The store was inspired by Bonkhe Magagula, the 9 year old boy in Swaziland that she sponsors through World Vision. Here’s what books4bonkhe has to say…Since I already enjoy making things, I figure I can do my part to help out by giving a little extra to people who need it.

The idea behind it is that I make journals (or other items) that I sell here, and I donate the proceeds to World Vision to help build schools, wells, or just help to improve the overall quality of countries in need.

4x6x1 inch Journal made from recycled box of Bottle Caps (the candy).
Light blue inside.
20 (40 front and back) cream card stock pages, hand-torn.
Pages attached by silver curvy ribbon, tied on the inside with a bow.

Works great as a quote book, small scrapbook, guestbook, or journal.

100% of sales price goes to Earthquake Relief through World Vision!

Plan for Chile Earthquake Relief

07 Mar, 2010 by in santiago 1 comment

Some of you may have noticed I am running a little behind on my book reviews this week. I’ve read three books and haven’t posted them yet. My mind has been occupied with the earthquake in Chile as I lived there for a year and a half. I love the people there like family. I have contacted some of them online and it is apparent that there are many in need. Some have lost their homes and have a family members missing. As a result I am hoping some of you will contribute to a Chile relief fund. 100% of the proceeds will go directly to families there. Each day I will be posting silent auction items that others have generously donated instead of a giveaway. Please be generous in prayers if you have nothing to give. Thank you!
