Do you have a "thing" for purses??

After hearing about Heather Case's super creative idea (www.onepurse.org) to raise funds for the fresh-water well project at Trees of Glory in Ethiopia, I really have a "thing" for purses now!



Heather has already rasied $520 for the well after just one purse party and right now, she is auctioning off a really classy Coach purse on her blog at www.onepurse.org.  Please check it out and place your bid!  Bidding closes at 6 PM EST on Sunday!!

Take a moment to read about her purse parties and while your visiting, bid on the Coach purse.  All funds go to the well project at Trees of Glory. 

If YOU are interested in hosting a party to raise funds for the Trees of Glory well - read the details on her blog or contact Heather for instructions and tips at heathercase@cfl.rr.com.  She is also accepting donations of gently used purses for future parties - email her for shipping instructions.

If you want to make a tax-deductible donation directly to the well project ...
Go to www.hopechest.org, click on GIVE.
Select DESIGNATED GIFT and enter your donation $ amount
For Reference Number, specify ET2119000
In the Notes area, specify WELL

Our goal is to have all of the funds raised for this well project by November, when my travel team leaves for Ethiopia to work with the kids at the care-point.  For more information about the well project at Trees of Glory, click HERE.
