Did you know that Malawi is one of the least developed countries in the world? How about the fact that 89 in ever 1,000 babies born die? Or that the average life span is 44 years? Malawi is a small country that is slightly smaller than Virgina.
Hearing those facts, doesn't it just make you want to help them out?
Imagine, 89 babies out of 1,000 die, isn't that horrible? How can we help the mothers and babies?
A while back my friends and I started a organization called "Hats of Love" where we knit baby hats for newborn babies. I would love to move further and put together care sets for new mothers in Malawi, however, as teens in 4-H, we don't have the funds to be able to do this all on our own. That is were you can come in.
In each kit we will include:
-A hand knit baby hat -A Receiving Blanket -2 Washcloths -S.C. Johnsons Baby Shampoo -1 Onesie
The total cost per a kit will be $10 + the cost of shipping which brings it up to around $15
We would love to accept any donations of yarn, baby hats, baby blankets, new washcloths, new baby shampoo, new onesies, or money to pay for the supplies and postage.
If you are interested in donating, please send me an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
We are excited to help make babies lives in Malawi healthier! Thanks for helping out!
Book: And Then Everything Unraveled Author: Jennifer Sturman Rating: 5 out of 5 Cover Rating: 3.7 out of 5
Delia lives in an area were everyone's a genius....the parents have online businesses of some sort of an other, and most of the kids do as well. And it is practically rare to see someone that isn't driving a hybrid. And super organized Delia's mom, is one of them. So, when her mom goes on a boat to Antarctica for research and the entire boat mysteriously disappears and everyone believes that she is dead, Delia knows that this is not the case. So she starts researching herself to try to solve the mystery. However, she soon finds out that someone is out to get her, the question is, who?
I loved this book! I found it very entertaining and well written. This book funny even though it is covering a serious topic - finding ones missing Mom in Antarctica when everyone believes shes dead. The book just seemed to have the right mixture of ingredients to make it a great read! I'm looking forward to reading more from Jennifer!
I am constantly inspired by little things, the way ocean waves move, the change of emotion in horses eyes, a leaf blowing across the ground, colors of the prettiest shades, I love to find inspiration in everything! I am the proud Momma of two horses, Bailee and Figment and will be showing in junior Hunter jumping with Figment come next Summer! I hope you enjoy my blog and stop by again!
I would love to review your books! If you have a young adult book that you would like me to review, and post on my blog, feel free to send it! Please let me know if you are interested!
I am interested in YA books of almost all genres. If I happen to receive a book that I end up not liking (which I have to see isn't often), I will post a review on my blog and will either have a giveaway for it on my blog or donate it to my local library, otherwise I will save it to read again in the future when I might like it better.
