A few things before we get started--
1. We have been crazy busy. I haven't been home much, and we've been going in twenty different directions. It's been nuts....and lots of fun.
Being busy is my jam.
2. I leave for Africa in NINE days! AHHHHH! I may or may not already be packed. Yes, I'm serious.
3. Emily. Oh, my Emily. No, I won't be seeing her on this trip to Africa.
I do hope that's coming soon though.
And this post relates a little to that.
So, it's no secret we're adopting.
It's also no secret that adoption is all kinds of costly.
And this mom-- she is tired.
However, my work is not finished.
We still need about $2000 to cover our court costs and then an additional $10,000 or so for travel and the final adoption costs.
In case you're keeping track, that's a lot of pennies.
How do we plan to raise the additional funds we'll need?
However, I do know one way.
Friends, let me introduce you to She Does Justice.
In their own words:
"She Does Justice is an advocate for those who need one. It is a space where organizations who are working for the good of others are recognized. It is a community of people who want to show love to the 'least of these'. A place where we strive to show those in need that they are known and loved.
We have made it our mission to support organizations who are working to reach those in need, near and far. It doesn't matter how big or small the organization, if we believe in its mission then we want to help support it. Each month we will spotlight an organization. At the end of the month we will write a check to that organization taken from the overall sales in our shop that month. Each month we will donate at least 10% of our gross profit to an organization to help further their mission. Check out our cause for this month on our blog!
Our shop is focused on items that work with your lifestyle. Most of our items are handmade and are made by us or other small business owners who have partnered with She Does Justice. These items are made with you in mind. I hope you love them just as much as we do! Our shop operates as a boutique in how we make and stock items. Our fabrics are special ordered so our scarves and headbands are offered in limited quantity. If you see something you like, don't hesitate to purchase it because once it sells out we may not be able to reorder the fabric. New collections will be introduced throughout the year, so check back often!"
And She Does Justice is partnering with US to help bring Emily home!
Let's check out some of their cuteness, shall we:
Love, love, love these products.
The t-shirts? So soft.
The headbands? So fun.
The She Does Justice stretchy headbands may seriously be some of my very favorite things.
Here are a few of the other items you'll find in the She Does Justice online store:
For every item ordered through our link, a portion of that order will go towards our adoption.
