Help Two Children -- Buy Soap
One of my friends just told me some tragic news -- a mom friend of hers was killed in a car crash. Her two children, aged 1 and 2, were with her but were unharmed. Unharmed in body, but they've lost their mother before they even got to know her.
Things like this always give me pause. I look at my family and think, "what if". I thank my lucky stars every night already for the love my husband and child already give me, but horrible things like Emily's death make me say an extra prayer -- one for her and her family, and one for myself, that I never take for granted what I have.
My friend has an Etsy shop and is donating 40% of her sales towards a $2,000 US treasury bond for the children. So if you are in the need of handmade soap, her shop is http://desertmaidenbath.etsy.com.
And hug your family today!
