We had a great event at the ‘Creek and Cave’. Thank you all for coming down to the ‘Creek and Cave’ and supporting us! We managed to fund-raise some money that I will be sending to Anjo Gabriel, the school for special education for physically and mentally challenged children. Not only does this school lack in basic needs such as school supplies, etc, but many children drop out of school since their families cannot afford to send them to school. I had volunteered there for 7 weeks, and would like to continue being of service to the children of that school. I am thankful to my friends and family who have supported me and continue to support me in this cause.
We created the “Anjo” line of jewelry. I hand-made these with the red & black seeds that are found in Peru.
Below is the picture of our display:
About these seeds:
These red and black seeds are from the Huayruro plant which is native to Peru, and has been an important part of Peruvian culture for centuries. Huayruro seeds are found in pods in the tall trees of the Peruvian rainforest. The red and black seeds are said to bring good fortune and abundance, while warding off negative energy. Locals collect the seeds that fall to the jungle floor, and many keep them in jars in their houses to bring them luck. They also make Huayruro seed bracelets for children to keep them safe from harm. In fact, newborn babies in Peru often receive Huayruro seeds as their first gift, with wishes for a happy and prosperous life.
So, the “Anjo” line of jewelry was inspired from this fact to bring wishes and prosperous life to the children of “Anjo Gabriel”. When you own this jewelry, not only would it bring you luck, but 60% of your purchase will go towards the school.
I would like to continue fundraising for Anjo Gabriel. If you would like to buy the ‘Anjo’ jewelry and support this cause, or if you would like to simply donate to the school, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
