A week ago I was scrolling through my Instagram feed when I came across a post from Jen about an auction she was planning called Crafters for Courage. It caught my attention because I’ve volunteered on and off for an organization based here in the Sacramento area called Courage Worldwide, which builds homes for girls rescued out of domestic sex trafficking.
So I clicked on it and lo and behold it was the same Courage! I couldn’t believe it!
Jen and her friend Crystal were planning the auction to raise money for an organization that I’ve been a part of for years. Jen told me she’d heard the organization’s founder, Jenny Williamson, speak on her local radio station in central California and had been moved to raise money to help build more homes. I was able to share my connection with Courage Worldwide with Jen. I was nearly in tears as we talked about our shared heart for these vulnerable girls who so badly need a home and a family that loves them.
And today is that auction! So hop on over to Instagram and follow Crafters for Courage. There are all sorts of incredible items to bid on made by the wonderful, crafty people of the Internet, including a bunch of my friends.
My item in the auction is the North West pillow cover I made. It’s 16″ x 16″ in grays and pinks. You know you want it!
