Action Kivu Fundraiser
If you haven'e already heard, Alissa (of Handmade By Alissa and also the awesome woman who taught me how to quilt) is hosting her second annual Action Kivu Fundraiser. Her twin sister, Cate, works with this amazing non-profit that teaches women in the Eastern Congo how to sew, thereby helping them to learn how to support themselves and their families. It also helps send children to school so they can get an education. Many of these women are victims of rape, which is used as a weapon of war in the Congo. Alissa's goal is to raise $15,000 and there are two days left to help her reach her goal. If you can, please go an donate. Every contribution matters, regardless of how small. And don't just donate because of the prizes - donate because this is a great cause.
