Quilt raffle for Lola

Taking a break from sharing about our time in Ethiopia to tell you about an amazing organization and an amazing raffle.

Lola Children's Home is an orphanage in Mekele, Ethiopia for HIV-affected children.

And they have just recently celebrated their one-year anniversary.
Lola has started three support programs this past year: resident, day care, and family sponsorship. If we all chip in and do our part, Lola can grow and serve even more children and families, and also provide outreach and support to mothers and birth families.
And that is huge.  Family preservation.  Providing resources so that families can remain intact is incredibly, unbelievably important. 
In celebration of Lola's first year, From HIV to Home (the wonderful organization that I am on staff with) is giving away this amazing quilt, as well as these other prizes:
(2) Starbucks Jonathan Adler limited edition (Red) travel mugs
a Starbucks (Red) gift card
our very last "embrace" necklace.
Which means that for every entry, you have five chances to win!  Woohoo!
To participate in the giveaway, simply visit the From HIV to Home donation page at Network for Good to make a donation to the Lola fund. 100% of donations to this fund go directly to the work of Lola Children's Home.  $5 is worth one entry (so $50 is ten entries!). Please be sure to note "Lola" in the designation box of your giving form and include your email address so they can contact you if you are a winner.
Because Lola is a new organization, they depend largely on word of mouth. If you share this info on your blog or website, together with a link to From HIV to Home's donor page, email Jennifer with the web address of your post--she will give you a free raffle entry!

The drawing will be held on May 7 - World AIDS Orphans Day.  And to learn more about Lola Children's Home, please visit their website at

Happy raffling!
