Can I Be Honest....Again?

We need some funds.

We are, oh, so thankful at No.41, but we are growing like a weed and having a hard time keeping up.
We are so thankful for support and we know y'all want to buy bags.
We just need some moola to help get them to ya!

We still need 6 sewing machines, BUT
today, we had a major breakthrough and we found burlap!!!
Maybe you know, maybe you don't, but burlap has been the thorn in our side since this thing started.
Someone was just to stubborn to change the design.
Anyway, that's all water under the bridge now, because we have burlap!!
Or, we should on Friday.
In case you're wondering we go through about 20 yards a day.
If you'd like to donate burlap (or money for it), I'd love to tell you how.

After burlap, our next big hurdle is shipping.
We are working on getting a huge amount together to get the best rate, 
shipping from Rwanda is no joke.

Next, we have 17 girls in university, which is absolutely amazing,
and we are SO incredibly thankful to His Chase for sponsoring 13 of our girls, but we still have 4 that need sponsorship for school fees. 

The cost for an entire year of university, including boarding and travel expenses is $1,500 each!

Last, but not least, speaking of sponsorship, this girl could use your help.

When I came on this trip, I did fundraising for the year, which ended in July, and I had a few monthly sponsors that have since run out.
I think I may have been living on manna for the last 2 months.

So, that's kind of where we are right now.
These are our immediate needs.
We are hoping to have a legit infographic soon that will line out all the ways you can get involved.
There are many.

We are also putting the final touches on the website now.
Feel free to look around, please don't judge the typos,
they are on their way out.

We love you and we are so, so thankful for your prayers and support.
We are changing the world and we can't do it with out you!
If you would like to make a donation, just click on the 'donate' link at the top of this page.
Thank you so much!!

Please feel free to share with your friends!
