It’s a giveaway!

I’ve never done one before. I have been asked but I never felt like I was the right person.

But this time I do. I love this.

First, check out Becky’s profile as the new Ember Hero. I learned stuff about her there that I didn’t know. And it explains a lot about this woman that I love and admire so very much.

Ember Arts is a business that “exists to renew hope. They partner with women in Uganda, East Africa to create beautiful jewelry using recycled paper and plastic. Through this connection to the American market their Ugandan partners are able to rebuild their lives and families, and rekindle their hopes and dreams, after a devastating civil war. They embody the unquenchable ember of the human spirit.”

So that is awesome.

And this is awesome:

50% of all Ember online sales through Nov. 9 will be donated to The Adventure Project.

Yay. So much goodness here.


I have a matching necklace and earring set that I can giveaway. Just like these:

    I’ve been following Ember Arts since they were known as Acholi Beads (or something like that). I love the Gravity necklace, and the simpler earrings–Kidepo, Sway, Classic Single. Of course, all their stuff is lovely!

    I don’t really do Twitter, so I guess that’s two out of three!
