Action Kivu Fundraiser

Today is the final day of the Action Kivu fundraiser, hosted by Alissa of Handmade By Alissa.   If you haven't taken a look at what Action Kivu does, or how this fundraiser helps women change the lives of their families through sewing, check it out. $10 is tuition for a child for a month. Wow. 

And there are some really great prizes...

Alissa writes, "Action Kivu is a nonprofit that helps women who are victims of the conflict in Eastern Congo by teaching them to sew at a sewing workshop. Action Kivu also pays for children to go to school. The conflict in Congo has taken the lives of over 5.4 million people since 1998. Rape is used as a weapon of war, with estimates putting the number of rapes in the hundreds of thousands. These are horrible statistics but together we can make a difference for some specific women and children."
