WAR and coffee, tied up with Thread’s of Hope

April 24, 2012







I had the lovely treat to be invited for coffee by my aunt.  Perfect timing as I needed to get out of the house.  So I met her at a local coffee shop and I was so surprised to see she was working a Women At Risk International party.  Apparently she and some other ladies pick one Saturday out of the month and help get the word out about human trafficking.  People coming in for a coffee and maybe a treat can browse the tables.  Everyone gets to meet more of their community.  The coffee house gets extra business as people wander and wonder. People learn about the awesome things W.A.R is doing…some who have never heard about the organization before, get to be introduced.  What a smart idea!

I bought that sheer scarf and  it is wonderful…looks great with short sleeves.  Not like a heavy wintery look.  I nice light look.  Love it!

How cute are those little seed ear rings… you know they caught my gardening eye… but I am not much for I just captured them to show you.

I have to say…. I really wish I would have gotten that necklace…I love amethyst…but I got carried away …because this man…the one pictured with the fancy shoes in the below picture…He came by.  He looked around and went back to his table.  I could tell that something was up.  Then a few minutes later the barista came back and handed my aunt a check, “The man at that table wants to contribute to your cause.”  We gathered around to see a very sizeable check…

Whoa!  No purchase just a need to contribute.  You know me, I have to know what pushes people to do for someone they don’t know…so I marched up and asked him, lol.  He seemed like a nice enough guy…and he was, “I just see you gals are collecting for a good cause…I have been given a lot lately and I just want to help others.”

 And it is as simple as that? Isn’t it?

We live so much better off  finically then most of the world…even during these tough times…we have abundance in comparison.  If we can help…we should.  If we don’t help aren’t we just saying it’s okay?

Just to be given the opportunity to be His hands and feet….. just to be given…and to keep giving.



I need to buy more Thread’s of Hope bracelets, as my seven children have worn them hard…now I know exactly where to go to get that necklace and seven more bracelets…

    I LOVE buying gifts from nonprofits especially to give to teenage nieces. Often there is an a printed item included with the gift so that the recipient learns about the the mission and the needs. It can be a powerful learning experience. Glad you highlighted this important work!

    Those are gorgeous bracelets! And I haven’t seen those kinds of eggs in a while, my father used to have one on his desk as a paper weight. I used to love to feel the weight of it in my hand.
