Unique Custom Gifts for Charity

Unique jewelry does not have to cost a fortune. There are several talented artisans that sell on Etsy who can custom create unique pieces within most budgets. I chose Junk Posse for this feature because this artisan is as generous as she is talented. Browse through her store and you will find creations benefiting various charitable organizations. I was also touched by her emphasis on celebrating adoption from all countries. The pictured bracelet is A fine silver 7 inch Bracelet with the Chinese words "Adopted with Love" on the front. 25% of the purchase price from this bracelet will be donated to a Family Adopting from China! You can find her shop on Etsy or visit her blog, http://junkposse.blogspot.com/
Here are a list of the other charitable organization she helps through her amazing talent..
Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep Foundation gently provides a helping hand and a healing heart. For families overcome by grief and pain, the idea of photographing their baby may not immediately occur to them. Offering gentle and beautiful photography services in a compassionate and sensitive manner. They allow families to honor and cherish their babies, and share the spirits of their lives.
AHOPE for Children is a non-profit organization whose mission is to serve the children of Ethiopia, with a primary emphasis on caring for orphans infected with HIV.
Nest- A non profit organization dedicated to changing the lives of women & Children.Worldwide Orphan Foundation- A non profit organization that helps to transform the lives of orphaned Children.

A separate group of amazing women have joined forces for similar causes in the REBEL FOR A CAUSE RAFFLE AWAY. Today is the last day to make your donation and enter to win a massively monstrous Canon Digital Rebel XSi prize package. Proceeds will go to String of Pearls, a beautiful ministry that offers a nurturing and safe place for families as they navigate the path following a fatal prenatal diagnosis that will result in the death of their baby prior to, or shortly after birth. String of Pearls provides guidance, compassion and practical suggestions as plans to honor the life of pre-born babies are crafted.
Proceeds will also go to benefit No Hands But Ours. No Hands But Ours is a China adoption resource site, specific to special needs adoption. It was created to provide information, encouragement and support for families of the children who wait and for those who wait no more. It is their hope that God would use this organization to encourage and equip ordinary people to do an extraordinary thing in the life of a special needs orphan, to give the gift every child needs and deserves...a family.
The Elison Project helps to provide grants to families adopting special needs children from China, and collaborates with No Hands But Ours. Proceeds of this Raffle-Way will allow families to make an incredible difference in the life of a child. Your donation will help to bring His children home.
