I am just so pleased to introduce you to The Mom Quilt. A collection of over 60 moms (including yours truly) from around the world are sharing their stories of hope in the just-published ebook, The Mom Quilt.
Each Mom has contributed a personal story. Some will make you laugh, and some will make you cry, but every story is filled with hope and encouragement. I am proud to have been a contributor in this project, sharing my story about how having children has given me more confidence and the ability to believe in myself.
Water is a precious resource, and something that we tend to take for granted here on the Emerald Isle where it rains so frequently. Unfortunately, access to clean water isn’t so easy to access for many around the world.
At Mercy House in Kenya, so much time, effort, and expense go into getting fresh water trucked up the mountain for the young women and children who stay at Mercy House. A well on-site would then free up their resources to do more important work.
100% of proceeds from sales of The Mom Quilt (affiliate link) are going towards building a well at Mercy House in Kenya. The goal is to raise $40,000. In just the first 13 hours, $1,000 has already been raised, and I’d love to see the goal reached as soon as possible so that work can get started.
The ebook costs $9.99 (you’ll receive a link to download a PDF). If you’d like to make an additional donation you can simply increase your payment to any amount over the $9.99 price. Every penny extra will go directly towards this project. The book is now also available from Amazon here.
As the funds are raised, the water level in this well will rise, so check back weekly to see how the fundraising is going. As of the end of September, 2015, the well has been fully funded.
It was a combination of efforts, the mom quilt book, and two other fundraisers joined together and it happened. $40,000 was raised in less than 2 months. And lives are being changed.
Drilling is scheduled to start next month. Because of you. Thank you.
For more information about the full funding of this project, please see Beauty Through Imperfection. Paula has lots of great and encouraging information about this project.
Will the project end once the $40,000 goal is met? Not at all. Funds will still be raised and new projects will be developed.
