friends that give back…part one

“love life, engage in it, give it all you’ve got, love it with a passion, because life truly does give back, many times over, what you put into it”                                                                                                             Maya Angelou

This month on our EOR blog we’ll be sharing with you different friends who are giving back to the children in Ethiopia. These friends have all donated items to our various events, Lights of Hope here in Portland, Oregon, Tasfa in Denver & Dead of Winter Gala in Columbus Ohio. These events could not happen without the generosity of individuals and businesses donating items.  Maybe after reading this series you’ll come up with some gift ideas too for your friends and family.

Have you ever met someone and been amazed beyond belief at their talent? Well Autumn at Crafty Mommy is just that person. Autumn makes the gorgeous custom baby dolls, along with banners and much more. A few years ago when Autumn and her husband were adopting from Ethiopia she wanted to give back a portion of each of her Etsy sales to EOR. She also has donated a few custom dolls and gift certificates to Lights of Hope each year. My little Ethiopian tot has a custom made doll from Autumn and will cherish it forever. They also make perfect baby shower gifts. Check out her Etsy site. Thanks Autumn for all you do for the orphans in Ethiopia.
