Last October, a very sweet lady named Charity contacted me. She explained that she was in charge of a boys ministry group. The boys from her church were working on a missionary project for a family in Yugoslavia and were looking for things to create and sell at a craft fair to benefit this family. They came across my blog and saw some cupcake ornaments that I had made for Christmas.
The boys asked her to contact me for permission to use my project. (Do you feel your heart swelling?) Of course I said, "Yes"! I then asked her if I could tell their story in a blog post. She agreed and promised to send me some photos.
Fast forward to January. Charity contacted me again informing me that the boys had a successful craft fair. The cupcake ornaments were a hit and they raised $225.
I have never met these boys and I am so proud of them! Here are some photos of their ornaments:
Aren't they FABULOUS??????
I always knew the internet is a very powerful resource. I guess I didn't realize how my little corner of the blogging world can have such an effect on people so far away. I am inspired by these boys and am proud to have given them a little inspiration to do so much good.
I hope this story warmed your heart as much as it did mine.
Have a great week!
