147 Million Minus 1

Did you know there are over 147 million orphans in the world? That is 147 million children who have no one to call family. That is 147 million children who have no one to love them or to love themselves. That is 147 million children that may not know where there next meal is going to come from or how they are going to stay warm now that the weather is changing. That is 147 million children too many. Do you want to know how you can help turn that 147 million into 146, 999,999?

JUNKPOSSE that is! What is JUNKPOSSE you ask? Well, it is a line of jewelry designed and handmade right here in the good ol' USA by a lady named Tracy. Tracy has a huge heart for orphans and adoption because she is the proud grandma to a little girl from Ethiopia. Because Tracy knows how financially difficult it is to raise money for adoptions, she donates 30% of her proceeds to a specific family. And you know what is even cooler than that? For the next couple of months, Tracy has chosen us to be one of those families.

All you have to do is click on the button in my sidebar, choose the design that best fits your style and order it. Simple enough. Oh, and if you mention my name during check out, you will also receive a FREE, yes FREE pair of sterling silver earrings.

The holidays are just around the corner and before you know it they are going to sneak up on us. How about getting a jump start on your shopping this year by heading over to Tracy's Etsy shop JUNKPOSSE and ordering a gift for someone, or even yourself. I myself love the Dream Come True necklace (hint, hint). Just think, not only will you be getting an awesome piece of handmade jewelry, but you will also have a hand in giving a child, a child of God, a home with a loving family. By purchasing one of Tracy's pieces, you will have changed a child's life by leaps and bounds. You will be decreasing the number from 147 million to 146,999,999. That is one less child that will be called and orphan and instead will be called a son, a brother, a grandson, a nephew, etc.

So, what are you waiting for? Go on over to Tracy's Etsy shop and help to change life of a child, a child of God.


"For I helped the poor in their need and the orphans who had no one to help them." ~Job 29:12

Love the necklaces. Am thinking maybe one might be suitable for my pregnant sister in law for christmas! Her baby is due in February so it may be an ideal gift!
