A few months ago, during our Create30 project, I repurposed an old candlestick and dinner plate into an oh-so-trendy cake stand and inspiration struck. Who wouldn’t want an adorable little cake stand to display their Christmas cookies and monkey bread and other delicious treats? So they went on sale in my etsy shop. But for those of you in the Charlotte area, there’s even better news!
The Kilgoris Project is an incredible ministry that grew out of a chance meeting on a Kenyan safari in 1999. That meeting turned into a partnership and the ministry has built schools and churches, provided medical care, given education, and has recently purchased a tea farm for the Kenyans to run in order to become self-sufficient. This is right up my alley! And this Saturday, they’re hosting a marketplace to raise money in support of these projects.
Well, cake stands and Kenya seem like the perfect complement, so I’LL BE THERE SELLING ALL KINDS OF GOODIES this weekend. In addition to the donation I’ve made to host a booth, I’ll also be donating 15% of my profits to this ministry–so you can walk away with beautiful new treasures AND help support an incredible ministry in Kenya.
Since I know many of you live too far away from Charlotte to make the trek, I’ll extend this offer to my etsy shop as well. I’ll donate 15% of the profits from any item sold in my etsy shop this weekend. There’s never been a better time to start your Christmas shopping.
