*This giveaway is over, but please continue reading to learn about Uganda Orphans Fund.*
This is my 100th post, so I'm offering a little giveaway.
I really want to introduce you to an organization called Uganda Orphans Fund. As stated on their website, "The Uganda Orphans Fund is dedicated to the care and shelter of Ugandan orphans, most of which find themselves in this state through AIDS having taken the lives of their parents." Here are some of the children:

On their website, they sell necklaces made by Ugandan widows with HIV. The profit from these necklaces benefits the orphans. So I'm giving away two of these beautiful necklaces. All you have to do is comment on this post by next Monday, April 6. (Make sure you leave a way for me to contact you in case you win.)

The beads are handmade out of colorful paper.

Modeled by Zahana, who is no longer an orphan!

Please go check out the website, and leave a comment here!

Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world. James 1:27


  1. These are so cool! And the model...i would have to my fave. That is so presh.

  2. I LOVE these necklaces! I have a purple one from a booth at a women's conference in the winter.

  3. I was given one of these necklaces for Christmas and I love it! They are so beautiful and Zahana looks beautiful modeling them!

  4. Zahana - you are beautiful!
    Congratulations Sarah on your 100th post :) I can't wait to read more.

  5. I was telling my sister all about your site and your adoption story today. She hopes that some day soon she will adopt as well. Thank you so much for the site link and the beautiful necklace giveaway. What a kind and generous person you are.

  6. I have heard of these, but never seen them. Beautiful!

  7. I love feeling connected this way. Your spring-themed eggs and butterfly cupcake tray from today's post is phenomenal. I LOVE IT. Still need to try this one on Rory.

    I read through your adoption post a week ago and I cannot fathom the highs and the lows you experienced. Incredible. God is faithful, and your family is beautiful.

  8. Wow-the beads are amazing. Thanks for letting us know about this cause.

  9. What beautiful jewelry! As you've probably seen from the photos on my blog, I have a heart for orphans too.:)
