My Christmas List. . just a little something!

Ok, I lied. . .I don't just want water for Christmas. Now, I want an ornament too! I saw these and knew I just HAD to have one. Anyone planning on buying me a gift? Planning on buying ANYONE a gift? Guess what? These ornaments represent water! And, not just because they look like a drop, because they represent ACTUAL water that will be drilled for Liberians! How does it get any better than that? If you read my post about Rita and you too wanted to do something. . .something that might save the life of my son's brother or sister. Something that may save his birthmom's life or aunt's or a thousand children just like my little man. . .well, then, here's your opportunity! I know many of you are passionate about this cause, but the truth is that people won't take you seriously when you say you just want water. Well, ask for this ornament. How incredibly special would it be to give this ornament (ONLY $6.95!!!) to someone along with a note that says, "The proceeds of this ornament have gone to give clean water to those without. . and by the way, I added another $20 to the fund too!" I know this is a great deal, but if you budgetted $20 to spend on someone. . just get the great deal and use the rest of the money in a donation! You can click on the water logo in my left hand sidebar to donate. Click HERE to get an ornament. . or 2. . .or 5! I'd love to open multiples of these for Christmas! Hey, if you are giving it to me. . I think I'd like it early. . .how AMAZING would it be to have a couple of these on your tree; to pass them at night when you are tucking your children in and see the white lights of your tree sparkle off of them and know that you are giving life to another woman's child at the same time? amazing. go NOW!!!

PS: If I usually buy you a present and you'd like this, will you comment? I'd love to buy them for everyone, but kinda wonder if people will think this is self-serving of me b/c it's for water for Liberia? so, just speak up! In fact, your other friends might read this so everyone just speak up that they want these! Also, if you have a friend or family member who needs to know. . I could just email them and tell them. .

Went to the Etsy shop but they are all sold out! What a beautiful ornament, and knowing what it stands for makes it even more so.

self serving!? Are you kidding me!? This is the best gift! Once they restock I'll be getting one for each of my family members plus a few for myself. You can't beat the price either - perfect for those you don't know who to buy for, or if you need a little something extra. Thank you so much for posting about this!
