Everyone and anyone can make a difference, if they want to.
The Mercy Tree are a small group of volunteers, raising awareness and collecting money to buy school books for children living in abject poverty. As part of our Christmas activities on 11 November we will attend a small Christmas craft fair where we will be selling handmade items to support this cause.
Help them help themselves
100% of the proceeds from the sale of these items will be sent directly back to them to use for food and education. I can only imagine the huge boost in moral this will give the children when they realize that not only do they need to rely on the kind nature of donors around the world, but that they can actually help themselves by using their creative skills, and have fun at the same time. A welcome relief from the monotony of the Brick Kilns I am sure.
Local kids are helping too
Among The Mercy Tree’s most enthusiastic supporters are local children here in Norway, who have taken this cause straight to their hearts and have actively engaged in producing handmade jewelry and accessories to sell for this cause. We recently had the first of The Mercy Tree hobby nights, where we spread beads, threads and trinkets all over the kitchen table, and a small group of local children came and made some really beautiful pieces which they donated to sell at the Christmas markets
Here are some pictures of their handwork, I hope you will come and snap them up.. You get buy something colorful and fun and made with lots of love, and the Brick Kiln kids get a lifeline.
We will also be selling greetings cards with designs like the ones below
