The other day I was contacted by a Catholic homeschooling mom who is also the co-founder of Connected in Hope Foundation, "a non-profit, social enterprise empowering women and families in Ethiopia to rise above poverty through sustainable income development, improved educational opportunities and increased access to basic health care" asking me if I would host a giveaway to help raise awareness about their organization. Triplequadruplequintuple yes I will, I says to her!
In Ryane's own words:
"We work with 70 women who once carried 75-80 pound bundles of fuel wood 10+ miles down the surrounding mountains (see attached picture) to sell in the markets in Addis Ababa for less than $1/day.
