On the First day of Christmas…

Light Gives Heat

The Cause: Creating sustainable income for widows and the displaced in Uganda

I encourage you to check out Light Gives Heat, the first featured site of my 12 days of Christmas.  The Blue Nile Hand bag (you can find this under EPOH, Handbags) is absolutely gorgeous and has the story of its maker screen-printed on the inside.  Imagine reaching into your bag to grab your cell and suddenly being reminded that a tailor in Uganda who had no hope is now making a sustainable income through such purchases!

The SUUBI line of jewelry is made by a group of women in Uganda.  The women, most of them widows, have been displaced due to war that has affected their tribes and homeland.  Purchasing the jewelry gives the women a sustainable income and hope.  In addition, supporting SUUBI, Light Gives Heat, enables the organization to provide literacy classes to the women.
