I am positivley delighted to offer you my first blog giveaway of 2012! Lisa recently alerted me to the amazing work and ministry of the Noonday Collection and I quickly became a fan. Noonday is a fair trade company that sells jewelry, home decor, handbags and accessories made with love by skilled artisans who are learning a trade which is giving them they key to a better future. Lisa shared the history and heart of Noonday with me and I was swept away.
It began when the founder of the company was in Rwanda meeting a little boy she wanted to adopt. She was given items made by Ugandan artisans who wanted her to use the profits towards her adoption, and to build a market for their products.
That was the mustard seed that has since sprouted into a company that continues to blossom and bless others! Fundraisers are available with Noonday products for adoptive couples, and proceeds go to bringing children HOME to their forever families. I only wish I would've known about this during our adoption journey. What a wonderful way to bless everyone involved.
The products are fantastic and I am grateful to extend to one blog reader a $50 gift certificate!!
