Twins for peace – cool shoes, cool company

 

 

Just been doing some blog hopping and came across the Beetle Shack’s giveaway. I love and support companies like Twins for Peace, especially when they actually provide the support for communities to produce their own goods, not just give out handouts.

You know, teach a man to fish, and all that.

*go and check out their website and philosophy – how gorgeous are the owners????

I also got a reminder email today that our family has Kiva dollars to donate. We came across this micro financing website four years ago and as a family, committed $100 to donate. We asked the girls to sit down and choose three groups to donate money to. As the loans are repaid, you are able to re-donate or opt out. That $100 has gone around and around ever since, and our girls love to read about the groups and individauls requesting loans and how they intend to use the money. Worth checking out.
