Mark 12:30-31: ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.”
We love giving back around here. Here are a few of our favorite charities.
NILMDTS (Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep): If you ever have the unfortunate experience of losing a child, either through a still birth or death, please give us a call. We’ll come to your hospital room and create beautiful images of your child free of charge.
Compassion International: Isabel has a Bolivian background and a deep desire to adopt a little girl from Bolivia. Unfortunately, Bolivia to US adoptions are currently prohibited so we came up with a different way to help down there. Most children who are given up to orphanages for adoption come from very poor families who cannot afford to feed those children. The orphan situation is awful in Bolivia. Culturally, adoption is looked down upon and most people who are interested in adoption understand adoption to mean that they are gaining a house maid. Isabel found a proactive way to combat this through Compassion International. Their Child Survival Program helps mothers and babies with their needs over the child’s first year of life. This has proven to be a huge help in bringing down the amount of children given up to orphanages just so their child can be fed. 5% of each purchase is donated here to help these families in Bolivia.
If you have a favorite charity, please let Isabel know. We’re happy to give gift certificates to silent auctions helping awesome causes!
