I donated a few pieces to a fund raiser at Messiah Lutheran Church in Madison, Alabama. Messiah holds a fund raiser every year called the Handmade Market. This event is used to raise money for the Lunches for Learning Charity. Lunches for Learning provides a lunch every day for elementary school students in Honduras. Before the Lunches for Learning program, children would drop out of elementary school to look for/beg for food. That sucks. Lunches for Learning keeps the kids in school by providing a meal. And kids in Honduras who graduate from the sixth grade are much less likely to live in poverty. I like the idea of giving kids a meal and a better chance at a successful life at the same time. $15 bucks feeds a kid for a month. I figure that the pieces I donated will keep a few kids fed for the entire year.
