The other day I found a solution for part of our problem. Our Bibles, Sunday school stuff, and coats (x4) were slowing us down. "MOM! I can't find my Bible! MOM! Where is my jacket? LORI! Have you seen my Sunday school book?" Then after we made it to church, we were juggling all 3 things (x4) while we were there. Everything was getting shoved into my everyday purse (which is not that big) or ended up being dropped on the floor. My solution?
This bag is special.
This bag wasn't made by me. This gorgeous bag was sewn by Sally, a young lady who lives halfway across the world.
The adoption booth at Spark brought in new inventory this week. Part of that inventory was a display of Tukula totes and bags. Attached to each bag is a photo of the woman that handcrafted it. Here is a quote from the Tukula display:
Tukula is a cause-driven business invested in giving local Ugandan artisans an opportunity to grow above poverty. We do this by giving our artisans an above average wage for quality handmade products, an encouraging work environment, medical care and access to savings programs. They are then able to provide themselves and their families with homes, food, education and hope for the future.
Through working with Tukula, these ladies are gaining confidence, joy, and the opportunity to empower others.
