Does anyone else find January-March to be a hard season? The weather is drab, our summer vacations are much too far away, and there is a cold going through our family taking just one person at a time so that someone has been sick for at least a month now.
Life just seems so uneventful and mundane right now.
The other day I thought to myself, you know what, maybe having the chance to live an uneventful and mundane day is a sign of all the blessings we have. The weather is drab but we only know that by looking at the weather...we can't feel the weather in the comfort of our modern homes. Summer vacations are far away but they are happening and we're lucky to have something to look forward to. A cold is annoying yes, but we don't question if our child will make it through. It's not frightening, it's just annoying. Maybe, just maybe, all the uneventful and mundane days are a sign of the peace and prosperity we live in.
Here at Ira Loves Mae, we want to change our mindset about this season. We're excited to forget about our first world problems and focus on children who have never had the chance at living an uneventful and mundane day.
This weekend, we're donating 10% of all sales to Save the Children, a non-profit organization that believes that every child deserves a future. Every last one.
But here's the problem. Millions of children in the U.S. and around the world still aren't getting what they deserve. We're talking about children in need. Dying, when the world knows how to save them. Vulnerable children in poverty. Denied an education. Forced to flee violence. Orphaned, abused, abandoned. Children with no reason to smile. No hope for the future.
The world's children deserve better.
Save the Children is the world's first global charity for children, founded in 1919, they continue to lead the way.
How does Save the Children help kids in need? Truthfully, they do whatever it takes! They help on a daily basis and in times of Crisis.
In the US, Save the Children reaches America’s most vulnerable kids through early education, literacy, health and disaster preparedness programs — helping them to succeed in school and in life.
Globally, Save the Children works in 120 countries helping the most vulnerable, hardest-to-reach children. Through pioneering health, education and protection programs, we create lasting, life-changing results. They also educate and engage policymakers to champion policies and programs that improve the well-being of the world’s most vulnerable and marginalized children.
In times of crisis, they are always among the first to respond and the last to leave. We deliver lifesaving emergency relief and offer psychosocial support to help children recover.
So, from February 7th-9th, we'd appreciate your help giving back to Save the Children. Doing so is SUPER easy! Just grab those pieces you've had your eye on. We'll donate 10% of your order to Save the Children.
