Ornaments 4 Orphans $15
My wife, Jamie, and I started Ornaments 4 Orphans out of our love for Christmas and our passion for helping others. We first visited Uganda on a college mission trip. While there, we were struck by the poverty, lack of development, and the people who just wanted a chance to work and provide for their families.
We came back to the states and started a non-profit to help a small orphanage and school. Out of that, we began Ornaments 4 Orphans®. Ornaments 4 Orphans® is a fair trade, social business. We sell handmade products made by artisans in Kenya, Uganda, Peru, and Nepal. All proceeds are invested back into the communities where we work to provide jobs, fight poverty, encourage sustainability, keep vulnerable children with their families and prevent them from becoming orphans. When you purchase from Ornaments 4 Orphans®, you can be certain that you are making a real difference in someone’s life across the world. Our hope is to make our world a brighter place, one fair-trade ornament at a time.
