Book Sale Fundraiser

If you have been following me for any length of time you know I usually have a book sale to raise money for my yearly mission trip. Last years trip to Dominican republic was canceled and I believe it is rescheduled for early 2022. 

The books are piling up in my sewing room so I thought I'd have a sale for another charity that is close to my heart. 


If you are looking for a particular issue, please let me know. I may have it! I'm not sure if I should donate these or not. Is there any desire to purchase them? Let me know!

The ministry I'm donating to is called Faith Seeds Guatemala. 
My friend, Gaby, started this ministry working with families, especially children, who work in the dump to make a living. These kids don't get an opportunity to attend school because they do not have the finances for uniforms, books, etc.  In order to get them out of poverty Gaby realizes they must attend school. Click the link above to find out more.

 

This past year has been especially hard. 

No matter the hardships they are so grateful and joyful people. 

Less than 1% of the Guatemalan population is fully vaccinated against Covid. I'm sure the poorest of poor will be the last to receive any vaccination. 


Here is Gaby and I in Bolivia where she served as a translator for our team. 

Since I'm nursing my ankle I'll be home getting books ready for Monday! Please check back then. 

Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. An education opens all kinds of doors, seems like a very worthy cause. The people do look happy, goes to show it is not things that make you happy, it is love of family and friends.

    I am missing the Spring and Summer 2015 Primitive Quilts and Projects magazines. If you have them I might be interested in them. I hope you do well with the book sale to raise lots of money for donation.

    I'll be watching for the sale info on Monday!
