147 Million Orphan Giveaway

I AM SO EXCITED TO SHARE THIS OPPORTUNITY!

You have to check out the 147 Million Orphans website… watch the intro video! Serious! This organization was started by 2 moms. Two women that together have 13 children. A-m-a-z-i-n-g!

Each purchase on this website feeds 1. Feeds 1 child in Uganda.

ugandanecklaces1Check out the beautiful necklace that I purchased from 147million. Wow! I love it. I wore it yesterday for the first time. Lovely! And it fed one child in Uganda. Remember yesterdays post?

This is how I (we) can help!

They sell necklaces, shirts, hats, bags, bracelets, etc.

I first got connected with this site by reading the stories of Katie. Katie is a 21 year old gal, living in Uganda and has custody of 14 Ugandan girls. She is a mom to 14 and lives amongst the Ugandan people. This is truly amazing people! Could you imagine?? God called her there when she was 18…

God calls us all to unique and exciting things. I sit here and can’t help but thank the Lord for his goodness and mercy in my life and am SO blessed to be where I am today. I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I do love helping and being a small part of a big picture, tho! Who’s with me??

Please check out the website and then…

Katy Gunderson said...

Wow, Ria. What a beautiful organization. I just spent...let's just say a lot of time...reading through each one of the moms' blogs. And Katie?! Wow.....I seriously can't say anything more than WOW! The fact that she TRUSTED God sooo much that she left her life behind here, at my age, at OUR AGE, to become a mother of so many girls?! That is humbling and inspiring and a true testament to the God we serve and a disciple of Christ. Amazing. This is my comment.
