website with Burma women's crafts

The online Hunger Site, Child Health Site and Rainforest Site have buttons to click daily for free contributions and they also have online shopping for fair trade items, which pays for the contributions. If you go to the shopping part of the sites, for instance,
http://shop.thehungersite.com/store/site.do?siteId=220
and you click on the Peace! category, there is a Burma category, which includes handmade items by WEAVE and donation options like midwife training. The donations can be done as a gift, and you will get a link to a card for the gift recipient. An especially nice gift is the dolls for refugee children option. The women are paid to make the Karen stuffed cloth dolls in traditional outfits, and the dolls are given to refugee girls and boys.
There is also a Burma map pin to benefit food programs.

Edith: Thank you for sharing

Edith:

Thank you for sharing that tip with the Pulse Wire community. The click to donate program is a great way to do something small everyday to contribute to important causes. Like Edith suggested, I challenge everyone to go to http://www.thehungersite.com/ everyday.

In friendship,

Jenna Kellam
