Another worthy cause

If you like jewelry keep reading.

Shortly before Christmas I came across this site, it's called the Starfish Project, not to be confused with the Starfish Home. I absolutely loved what I saw and that was before I read about the project itself. I bookmarked the page and promptly forgot about it until the other day.

"The Starfish Project was established in 2006 to empower exploited women in Asia. The Project developed a socially responsible jewelry business in order to provide women with alternative employment and a range of holistic care opportunities. In 2011, the project has grown to support approximately 35 women in 2 different cities, primarily through the jewelry company where women have taken on new levels of responsibility and leadership, and are able to provide for their families through meaningful employment. The Starfish Project also provides opportunities for women to heal and grow through counseling, vocational training, language acquisition, family education benefits and health care access, as well as providing housing in our women's shelter. The Starfish Project is committed to restoring hope for each woman that enters its doors."

I am trying to figure out who's birthday is coming up soon and which piece to buy for them.

I don't mean for all my charities to be centred around Asia, it just happens that way. It must have something to with part of my heart still being there.

Dawn, Thank you so much for always leaving such nice comments to us. You had asked what you can do and believe me, just by leaving a comment and asking how we are doing, if there is anything you can do is enough in my book. You have no idea when you have a child that gets cancer how much everyones comments, thoughts and prayers are so much appreciated. BTW, I LOVE this Starfish Project cause, what an inspiration! Hugs, Trish
