Giveaway for a Good Cause!

A few weeks ago my friend Allison posted some pictures of really cute items to facebook & I loved what I saw. I figure until I learn to sew, I will happily support those who do!

Allison is going to be going with a group from her church to Monrovia, Liberia for 13 days this summer. Her talented friend Jen who sews has offered to help her raise some of her support by selling cute checkbook covers with 90% of the proceeds going towards Al's trip!

If you are anything like me, you have to look at a map to identify where exactly in Africa Liberia is. It is on the West Coast and here is a little visual:

One thing that is really cool about this opportunity is that their church does trips like this multiple times a year to Liberia, meaning that there is a partnership present and not just a one time experience. Allison will be working with a team to continue the relationships their church has built with teachers and leaders along with doing some ministry with kids. While she is in Liberia, she will miss her cute little son Will's second b-day which to me is a sign of how called she feels to be on this trip, at this particular time.

Here's a pic of the Kemmerer family around Will's first b-day last year:

As just a small piece of support for her trip I want to give one of the checkbook covers away. All you have to do to enter is comment with your favorite of the four designs pictured below by Sunday at noon!

Here are a few of the other fun items Jen makes and even if you do not win the giveaway, the checkbook covers are still available for purchase with 90% of the sales going towards Allison's trip. For info on the other items pictured here, email me at Enjoy!

  1. Thinking of a few students of mine from Liberia, I might have to purchase the orange cover even if I don't win:) Love this idea!!

  2. Love the turquoise (sp) one... Very creative. I'm going to have to learn how to sew in my free time (haha) since I now have a girl to accessorize :) Hope you're feeling good, Bekah!

  3. Love the orange cover. What a wonderful cause! Thanks for posting this!

  4. First of all, what church does she go through? My best friend is in Liberia. She lives there. She goes to Immanuel CRC in Hudsonville.
    Oh and I like the orange one.
