Amani Ya Juu Giveaway!!

UPDATE: Congrats to our winner Faith!! Thank you to everyone who spread the word!!





February is all about one thing: Candy hearts.

I jest internet, I jest! But man those little beasts are delicious and I don’t even know why.

But more than candy, we like to celebrate love during these 28 days and what better way than to help change the lives of others? Living out love is one of the greatest joys out there. It really is. :)

So today, I’m partnering with the amazing Amani Ya Juu to do a giveaway! Just in time for Valentine’s Day!

I’m giving away those lovely items pictured above. And this is when I wish I could enter my own contest. It’s like I need that bag (Mini Safari Fold Over Bag). And the journal (Mini Kanga Notebook Journal)? I’d just keep it in my purse to look cool.

In case you missed the last Amani post, here’s what they’re all about:

Amani ya Juu (“peace from above” in Swahili) is a sewing and training program for marginalized women established in Nairobi, Kenya, with sister centers in Rwanda, Burundi, Uganda, and Liberia. Women at Amani are learning to work together through faith in God who provides a peace that transcends all cultural and ethnic differences. Amani portrays a unique picture of diversity, with women coming from Rwanda, Burundi, Congo, Uganda, South Sudan, Kenya, Ethiopia, Somalia, Mozambique, and other African nations.

Yep, they really are an amazing organization, changing the lives of women from all over Africa.

To enter, I’ll make things easy! Just fill out this form here.
