The fundraiser will be held here on my blog from Monday August 22nd, 2016 through Sunday August 28th, 2016.
Our amazing online sewing community is so, so generous. Let’s work together again, pool that giving nature, and raise $15,000 for Action Kivu this year!
Action Kivu helps women and children who are victims of the conflict in Eastern Congo. The conflict in Congo has taken the lives of over 5.4 million people since 1998. Rape is used as a weapon of war, with estimates putting the number of rapes in the hundreds of thousands.
These statistics are hard to think about, but together we have made a big difference for specific women and children in Congo. Every year there are more women entering Action Kivu’s programs and more children going to school. Your generosity is causing positive change in the lives of these specific women and children, so let’s keep working together to help!
One of Action Kivu’s projects is a sewing workshop that teaches women to sew. When women graduate from the workshop, they are given a sewing machine and therefore the means to support themselves and their families. This workshop changes their lives in amazing ways and it is your generosity that makes that possible!
Our online sewing community is connected to these women through sewing and we can make a difference. Please give today!
Also, you can help with spreading the word about the fundraiser via social media and use the hashtags #akfundraiser #sewing #congo #actionkivu
Please follow me on Instagram, as I will be posting all week there as well. Repost or share any of the fundraiser images that I post there or on Facebook. Let’s work together to really get the word out and get to our goal of $15,000!
If you have any questions at all, please feel free to leave them in the comments and I will answer them there, or you are of course also more than welcome to email me. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
