Since my mom and I began our company at my kitchen table, it has unfolded and multiplied in ways we never imagined. Along the ride, we have said to each other countless times that there had to be a reason mod. was flourishing before our very eyes. We feel passionate that with mod., we have an amazing opportunity to minister to those in need and that opportunity is a big part of why our company has become what it is today. God has blessed us and it is time for us to give back. So without further adieu, I am thrilled to be able to introduce to you a new movement in our company, a mod. movement.
This summer, my brother and sister-in-law blessed us with a new member in our family; a cousin to my boys and grandchild number 10. His name is Beck Gudeta and he is from Ethiopia. His smile lights up the room and his brown eyes melt your heart.
Just before Beck made the journey home, I met a wonderful woman while on vacation named Megan. She and her husband have three children, two biological and one adopted in 2010 from the Democratic Republic of Congo in Africa. I began learning her story through her blog and it was there, late one night, where I read a post titled, Despair. This post stopped me in my tracks. It spared no details of the horrific conditions many of the precious orphans in Africa are forced to live in. Having my heart tied to my sweet nephew half a world away made it even more gut wrenching. I wear a lot of hats on a daily basis but a Mama and nurturer is my biggest and it runs deep into my core. I stayed awake that night thinking of the children I saw pictured in her post. I cried and prayed that they had a bed & blanket and someone to kiss their faces when they went to sleep. I knew I couldn’t fly out and stick them all in my suitcase so I decided to use the gift of our company to help in anyway that we could. I contacted Megan who led us to an organization called JabuAfrica and together we worked to develop our first project and launching pad for our mod. movement. We are thrilled to announce that for the month of February, 10% of each sale on our website will go to JabuAfrica and in turn, the precious children in Africa.
Defend the cause of the weak and fatherless; maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed. Psalm 82:3
We look forward to many more mod. movements in the future and giving back to those in need. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for your support.
