Countdown to Christmas | Making Room for Moore (Giveaway)

Welcome to the Countdown to Christmas {Etsy} Party! 

Today, I'm pleased to feature Stephanie from Making Room for Moore



When I was looking for Christmas items to feature in this week's party, I was so excited to stumble upon these glass ornaments that Stephanie at Making Room for Moore makes (Africa and Africa LOVE). I have a heart for Africa and believe wholeheartedly in adoption. When I read that she started making these ornaments as a way to raise funds for her family's adoptions from Uganda, I knew I had to share these ornaments with you!



Now that Stephanie and her family have brought their two boys home from Uganda, she continues to make the ornaments as a way to raise funds for an organziation called A Child's Voice. I asked Stephanie to share a little more about this organization and her family's involvement with it, and this is what she had to say:
"After our second adoption from Uganda and after spending many months in Uganda, I had seen many of the devastating family situations that lead children to orphanages and eventually adoption. I wanted to get involved with helping to support vulnerable families. This led us to A Child's Voice, which I now serve on the board.

"A Child’s Voice (ACV) is a grassroots organization advocating for vulnerable children and families in Uganda. We use social policy, education, and family empowerment to promote solutions that strengthen vulnerable families and care for orphans without orphanages."
Hubs and I have tons of friends who have adopted children and several who have adopted children from Uganda. The need to advocate for these children is so great, and I'm pleased to share what this organization is doing.

Additionally, these ornaments would be a great gift for anyone who has a heart for adoption or Africa or just has a desire to give/receive gifts that have impact beyond ourselves!

  1. It'a amazing when you take for granted having a vehicle just to go to a friends or shopping and then you realize that some aren't as lucky as us to have one just to get medical needs and supplies.
