These two words – Chunky Junk – as silly as they may sound together, rouse beautiful thoughts in my mind. We have an amazing couple at our church. Their hearts overflow with love for the Lord and His instruction to care for orphans. Not only do they physically GO to those children, they sell jewelry stateside to raise money for these beautiful children.
Let me back up…
Love orphans. Visit orphans. Serve orphans.
Lovoso is a for profit organization that desires not only to help financially, but physically serve and live out the aforementioned command in James 1. The orphanages they support are located in Haiti, Ghana and two in India. One way they are able to provide this support, is to purchase gorgeous, handmade jewelry from women in India. This is done in fair trade fashion and allows them to be able to support 80 children in these orphanages.
I had a jewelry party before Christmas to help raise support and hope to have another one soon, however, be sure to check here to see if they will be at an arts/craft fair near you so you can see (and purchase!!) this beautiful jewelry for yourself!
I blog with integrity: I was offered a free piece of jewelry for this post, however all opinions are my own. Our family does indeed “heart” orphans!
