Guys! These are my favorite kind of posts to put together. Usually, I can’t stand the numbers side of running the Littlest Friend, but when I know the math problem results in some good for others around me, it gives me a whole new perspective. In case you missed it, these past few months, I have been setting aside 10% of the profits from each sale to support a Samaritan’s Purse project that holds a special place in my heart…
10% of the profits from the jewelry I sell will be going to support a branch of Samaritan’s Purse that provides important surgeries for children born with cleft lip and/or palate. As a speech-language pathologist, this is a cause that is near and dear to my heart. Working with children who were born with this diagnosis, I get a glimpse of the difficulties these children and their families face, whether it’s the monetary cost of the surgeries, or the frustrations these kids can face when trying to communicate their thoughts and ideas. I recently learned that in other parts of the world, cultural beliefs about the cause of cleft lip and palate can lead to these children being abused, shamed, and ostracized from their communities. Samaritan’s Purse is a ministry that sends volunteer medical teams around the world to provide surgery and medical care for people born with cleft lip and/or palate– you can learn more about their ministry here.
With your help, we raised $122.30 to help provide cleft lip and palate surgeries! Thank you guys so much for all of your support!
