The Power Of A Beautiful Gift
We believe the quality of your giving says a lot about the depth of your love.
Quality matters. It matters in our personal lives as individuals – and it matters in our giving too.
That’s one of the reasons I’m so proud of what we are accomplishing together through the Sew Powerful Purse project. Together we are elevating giving to an art!
Over the last few months I’ve had the honor of watching a huge number of seamstresses work hard on absolutely incredible purses that are going to girls in Zambia. We have a mountain of boxes filled with these purses and although we’ve been tempted to open a few – we’ve decided to wait until November 11th – for our big unboxing party. But I know that the quality and craftsmanship of the purses being produced is incredible.

Time – The Most Powerful Gift
While the purses are absolutely amazing – the purses aren’t the only gift that we are giving to the girls in Zambia. What we are really giving – which is much more valuable – is our time – that is the most powerful and beautiful gift we can possibly give to these girls in need.
We are all so busy, trying hard to keep up, meet our own needs, and make our lives easy and fun. Taking the time to do complex and detailed work on behalf of a child in need is a radical act of love – a powerful and selfless gift!
Rick Warren said it best,
I’d love to hear your opinion about the quality of our work together – the importance of the beauty and craftsmanship of the purses – and the impact this program is having. Leave a comment and tell us what you think!
Ps. If you are excited about this program and believe it’s making a real difference – we’d love to have you join us financially and give your best gift today. Every dollar given is a huge blessing and goes directly to help support the Zambian Sewing Cooperative where moms and grandmas are working hard to serve the children of Lusaka! Give today!
