Our first ever giveaway!

I'm doing a small giveaway here on my blog tonight on behalf of Reeds of Hope.  We would love to have more people learn about what we are doing in eastern DRC as we work alongside Congolese women and men as they care for vulnerable children in their midst.  I'm slowly learning how to navigate social media and I'm hoping that it can be one way others can join us.

During my recent trip to DRC, I bought a beautiful basket from some local artists.  I wanted to share it with you.  We have had some similar baskets for some years and they hold up well.  Also included in the giveaway are two bars of dark chocolate from cocoa that was grown by farmers in eastern DRC.  You can find out more about this amazing work at Eastern Congo Initiative and Theo chocolates here.  Finally, Jason Stearns of Congo Siasa recently wrote a book about eastern DRC where we work.  His recent book, Dancing with Monsters will be included.  If you want to begin to understand the complexity and depth of DRC, his book is the place to start.  It not only impacts eastern DRC, but all of Congo.

The giveway will be open for one week.  Thank you!





***Huge congratulations to Lindsay Morris, the winner of our first every Reeds of Hope giveaway.  Thank you for being a part of our work in eastern DRC, Lindsay and everyone who participated!***
