Hobbies for Hope

Words can not express how grateful I am to John and Renee Coyne, founders of Hobbies for Hope.

A couple months ago I introduced you to Made with Purpose, the section of the store where you could get involved by creating projects and selling them on the store with a portion of the proceeds going to support our featured organization fighting for children experiencing exploitation.

This past week I heard from Renee who introduced me not only to herself but her talent as well. As you can see she is very gifted at handcrafting beautiful cards. She wanted to contribute to our project and graciously donated almost 100 cards to our store! ALL the proceeds of these fun and thoughtful cards will go toward meeting our goal of supporting a restavek child in Haiti.

I am so encouraged by her generosity and am humbled to know that she and her husband who supports and encourages her in her talents will make a tremendous difference in a child's life. A child they have never met.

These fun cards are great for anyone - even children! And now you can not only shop with purpose but do "one stop shopping" as well. Purchase a gift and a card all at one time for someone you love!

Check out these incredible cards here and buy them to support a child in Haiti! Again, thank you Renee and John!
