Thursday, Snow Day, Hubby gets home
( I really splurged for dinner, I have been craving one of these!!!)
Gifts with a Purpose (Here's a few that I know about or I found through a quick search. I'm a sucker for these! )
|I asked for this and got this one V Day. Part of the proceeds went to the AHA.|
For the very conscientious:
(Give a gift of hope in some one's name. Ex: $25 to pay for a child's vaccines, $15 for 3 chickens for a poor family)
In Honduras, about $1,200 will build a house for a family, $150 would send a child to school for a year. (These simple things could mean the difference of a life of poverty or a life of possibility.) I can give your more information, if you are interested. Update: Cost to educate one child for a year is $175. They don't have public education and the families have to provide a uniform and many supplies.

Here is a blog of an young American missionary who lives in Honduras. She and others work and serve a hot meal to children in one of the poorest areas of Honduras. They also run a daycare and teach in the Sunday School.
http://www.jmarnold.blogspot.com/ ( I added this because this would fall under a gift with cause!!) I'm adding pictures that I and others have taken in Mololoa.

Kate Spade gloves (proceeds benefit Women International)
|I think I lost the link to this one.|
FAVORITE THING THAT I HAVE FOUND YET!!! I believe they will mail you this dessert in time for Valentine's Day. Some of the the proceeds go to help the "Bright Pink" organization.
Need a gift in a hurry?? This site says, "Do you need a gift today or tomorrow?" We love anything with a heart on it. This site has lots!!!!!!!
|I personally love these. They are fairly reasonably priced!!!|
Have you thought about starting one of these for your honey? I have one and love it. There are new designs.
|Mine isn't exactly like this, but I like this new style!! A lot of my friends want thest too!! Hint, hint!|
I really love this new pink leather design. It can be quite pricey, but you add charms as you go. :0)
