Monday Give-Away!! {and a fun way to DO GOOD}

Monday, December 8

Friends, I hope your weekend was relaxing! Mine was a mix of being a busy little Christmas elf {packing and mailing out calendars, working on my DIY tree stump coffee table, and tons of photo shoots!} and also being lazy and relaxed {watching my first Lifetime Christmas movie of the season, drinking tea, and having meals with friends!!} I'm ready to tackle this last week of school, and then be OFF FOR 5 WEEKS!! 'Tis the season:)

In honor of it almost being Christmas break for me, I'm having a whole week of awesome give-aways!! You won't want to miss it!! The give-away today is very near and dear to my heart.

This Fall, I have been absolutely smitten with a particular organization who is doing incredible work in Pakistan…Shining Light International. I know i've said this before, but the work they are doing is unprecedented in this region of Northern Pakistan. Pakistan has the 2nd highest rate of girls out of school, and SL is getting them INTO SCHOOL! Amazing!! SL is working with a nomadic people group called the Gujars and setting up remote tent schools for the children to attend, most of them for the first time in their lives! For years young girls were sold off as child brides at a young age, but now thanks to SL they are in school, breaking this cycle.

Shining Light has launched a project called LifeStitch. By connecting shops in developed nations with the unique products created at the LifeStitch Manufacturing center, women now have a much greater opportunity to support their families with extra income.

The scarf I am giving away today was hand-made by a woman in Pakistan working at the LifeStitch center. To see more of their products, click here. {it looks like most of their beautiful scares are sold-out right now, but they should be getting more in!} They also have these gorgeous kimonos that i'm loving here. 

What's even MORE amazing is that today I want to give you all the opportunity to host a house party filled with products made by the women at the LifeStitch center. Shining Light will send you all the items you need to host a fun, interactive party in the comfort of your own home! Don't just say you want to see "peace in the middle east", tangibly host a LifeStitch party and be a part of the empowerment process for these women!! To see how to host a LifeStitch party, click here.
