Feeding North Koreans from Comox

My daughter is part of what she calls "girls group" who hang out after church.  They giggle, build friendships, and talk about the Bible.  Lately they've been wanting to send food money for North Koreans through an organization we know that helps out there.  Acacia decided she wanted to sell something.  One night in our living room we were chatting about it, and she settled on making jewelry with the do-it-yourself kit her sewing teacher had given her.

Who would have known how keen our neighbors would be to help send rice to North Korea by buying pink bead necklaces!  Her first night on the beat, she raised $15.  Tonight, another $35.   Her goal is $100.  She is getting a real kick out of it Elijah's having fun being her sidekick on the doors.  He's been racking his brain for what he could sell!

Here is a note from Acacia to my readers.  If you're in the market for a bead necklace... or just want to help some of the loneliest and hungriest people in the world, respond to this post and she'll see what she can do.

Hi, I am Acacia Mitchell and I am selling necklaces and earrings for $5.00 each.  The money will go to people who are helping north korea with food and love.  sale is only from Nov 30th - Dec 6th.
