Do Good {do justly, love mercy, walk humbly}

Handmade by Alissa is doing a wonderful thing for a wonderful organization.
This is a fundraiser for Action Kivu, an organization in eastern Congo that runs a sewing workshop for victims of the conflict there. The conflict in Congo has taken the lives of over 5.4 million people since 1998. Rape is used as a weapon of war, with estimates putting the number of rapes in the hundreds of thousands. { text from Handmade by Alissa website}

Action Kivu provides Eastern Congo’s victims of violence with the opportunity to rebuild their lives on a foundation of hope, dignity, and economic self-sustenance. {text from the Action Kivu website}

There are some giveaways connected to donations but I don’t think that is the meaningful part.
I take social justice, compassion and mercy seriously.
I hope you will take time to visit the sites I linked to and participate in some way.
