water4christmas

One of my favorite daily blog stops is Meg's "whatever" blog! Recently she went to a craft retreat with friends to help stock the WATER4CHRISTMAS etsy shop with wonderful homemade items!

It's full of all kinds of fun stuff!
All of the money goes to build wells with CLEAN WATER in liberia.
ALL OF IT.




In the shop you will find...these bracelets are simple and sweet and only $15.00!
It has a little hand made water droplet charm hanging off of it.
They would be great stocking stuffers.

(fyi...Meg heard these are not in the store until thursday? maybe?)


Coffee cozys..
almost everyone likes coffee
or hot chocolate.
Perfect gift for the coffee lover!


Dish towels...

burp cloths...

really cute Africa shirts in lots of sizes and patterns!

This is my favorite, absolutely beautiful!
A water drop christmas ornament (there's also blue ones).

Go check out the etsy shop... there's even more goodies!


here is the write up on their profile page...
"There are two primary choices in life; to accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them." (Denis Waitley)

At Water for Christmas, we've allowed the existing conditions to break our hearts and spur us to action.

* We want to join others in solving the world's water crisis, where 1.1 billion people on the planet don't have access to safe, clean drinking water.

* We don't want to accept the conditions where unclean water and the lack of basic sanitation cause 80% of all sickness and disease and kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war.

* It doesn't make sense that 4500 children should die every day from the lack of access to clean water.

Water for Christmas is partnering with charity: water (http://www.charitywater.org/) to build wells in Africa. All proceeds from items sold in this shop will go directly to building fresh water wells in Liberia, West Africa. We believe that a small group of people can work together to change the world. Visit us at water4christmas.com.

*If you would like to donate a hand-crafted item to Water for Christmas, to be listed on this site, please send us a message. As with everything else, all proceeds will go directly to building fresh water wells in Liberia.

Ready.... let's go shopping
