Giveaway Time! (contest closed)

Yes, it is time for you to have the chance to WIN something here.  We are hoping to do this a couple times throughout the year, as we have a willing volunteer to transport the prize and mail it from North America.

We are planning to give away one piece of hand-made jewelry.  Some of you may have read about Odeth and her ministry with APRECOM.  APRECOM stands for AIDS PREvention Care and Outreach Ministry.  Basically, they work with widows, orphans and families living with HIV/AIDS.  They run support groups, teach basic sanitation and nutrition, help pay for school fees, medical bills, and funerals, and help with income generating activities.  One of the income generating activities is teaching the clients to create jewelry and helping them to find a market for their creations.  The jewelry is really quite unique.  Here are a few examples:hoop earringspaper bead earrings

necklaceNow, for the giveaway part: In order to enter, please leave a comment in the comment section. (One entry per person please.)   You can say anything for the content of the comment.  International participants welcome.  On Saturday, March 23 at 7 pm ( in Rwanda), we will close the contest and randomly choose one winner (by drawing from a hat).  We will announce the winner on the blog.  The winner will be able to choose 1 item from the 3 pictures above for their prize.  [In the (unlikely) event that we have over 100 unique comments, we will draw a second winner.]

Looking forward to hearing from you!

We drew last night but the internet wasn’t working – sorry for the delay.


The winner is:  Kari Lehr.  Congratulations.
