I remember making the exchange all over town, on a whim, whenever I felt like I wanted something. Now, with a toddler around, living in a small community with fewer options, and all these adult responsibilities taking up my time, I find I just don’t have the resources to be putting out as freely as I once did.
Nope, now when I put out my money, I really have to think about what my funds are going to, and choose wisely.
One place I never feel guilty about spending is when the profits from what I’m buying are going to a good cause. It feels good to be spending money for items I want or need, for myself or as gifts, when I’m paying to support someone or something I feel strongly about. To know that my money is going to be used to further someone who deserves it, like a small or local business or non-profit group, rather than a large corporation that already has a lot of supporters.
Global Mothers is one of these fantastic places I love to put my money out towards. If you missed my previous post about the fantastic Global Mothers project, I encourage you to go back and give that a read to let me paint a full picture for you about what it is that they do. To recap quickly, though, Global Mothers is a project that works with non-profit organizations to provide mothers from countries around the world where the economies are limited, to reach the broader global market with their handicrafts, allowing them the opportunity to sell their products in a more successful way.
Last month I ran a giveaway of 3 amazing prize packs of baby and kids toys, clothes, décor and accessories for sale through Global Mothers which I just love. A big congrats goes out to Michelle Tremblett, Cathy Tocher, and Josh Siemens who will be receiving their fantastic winnings over the next couple weeks!
As promised, this month I am thrilled to be able a second giveaway of Global Mothers handmade goods. Instead of the children getting all the fun, though, this time the prizes were chosen with mothers in mind. We don’t often treat ourselves to nice things once babies come along, so I wanted to be able to offer a little sparkle to you devoted and caring mamas.
Here’s what’s up for grabs in this month’s giveaway (please click on the item name for more information, as it links to the product on the Global Mothers website):
