I also want to celebrate a milestone for my TTE Designs. Three years ago around the fifth anniversary of my conversion to Catholicism I heard a priest speak about an interdenominational organization called 'FOOD FOR THE POOR'.
His stories touched my heart and I wanted to do something to commemorate my journey. I decided that they would become my charity of choice. I began to make and sell rosaries and had some modest success.
Although I do this all year long, my biggest push is during Lent, which for Christians is a season of fasting, prayer and almsgiving.
This year I set a goal of $100 and added a series of polymer clay free standing and wall crosses to the rosary offering.
I am thrilled to say that I exceeded my goal! This past week after the Octave of Easter I am honored to send $120 to FFTP. This organization spends just .09 % on administrative costs, and 3.3% on fundraising that means 96% of the proceeds they take in actually feeds people.
$115 will help starving people world wide.
** Thank you to Kim O'D, Beverly E., the sweet little boy at a craft show who wanted the blue one for his first holy communion and the several anonymous clients who supported this effort through your purchase, I am truly grateful to you.
If you are interested in a custom rosary or cross, please contact me.
If that is not your cup of tea, no worries, but please consider making a direct donation to this worthy organization.
God Bless you and Happy Easter!
