Christmas Shopping with a Purpose!

Christmas Shopping with a Purpose!

God has blessed us with the opportunity to partner with several amazing companies who are helping us fund raise for adoption expenses.  And we have compiled a list of fundraisers that would make excellent Christmas gifts for many people on your list. As a double blessing, if you choose to support our adoption in this way, you are also helping many other projects around the world!

Scriptcharms (personalized Scripture jewelry) is a brand new business started by a mother and daughter who have a heart to give hope and encouragement. They have BEAUTIFUL bracelets and necklaces that you can customize with your favorite Bible verses. They also will make customized mother bracelets, wedding bracelets, or first communication/confirmation bracelets. You can order jewelry with hymns, prayers, and words of encouragement. This web address takes you directly to our “store” on their website:


Umweo Bags (handmade totes, purses, wallets) gives their profits to help support a feeding clinic for severely malnourished children in Zambia, Africa. Visit their store here Enter “HillAdoption” on the note at checkout. They have lovely handmade bags available in a variety of styles and patterns!


The ApParent Project (handmade bracelets made from recycled cereal boxes!) employs parents in Haiti to give them meaningful work and the ability to keep their children instead of having to place them in orphanages.We have these available to sell now: $8 per bracelet +$2 shipping if not local.
