Send Jen to Ethiopia!

Do you like my new headbands? Well, 1, 2, 3 or more of them can be yours! I am making headbands to raise money for my trip to Ethiopia this fall! Since this mission trip costs $3750 and I have already depleted my savings on the first third, I am having to get creative. They have a very vintage chic feel to them. Who doesn't love vintage these days?

Want one? Yes? Great!

Here are your options:


All proceeds will go to my trip to Ethiopia this fall. (You can read more about it here.) I will be going with International Crisis Aid to work with victims of sex trafficking. We will also be helping the malnourished and several other things. It is going to be quite a trip! Did I mention there are lions in Ethiopia? Ha! This certainly isn't a sight-seeing trip. It'll be more like a feet-aching, heart-wrenching, mind-exhausting, hand-dirtying trip...but it's going to be so worth it. There is nothing better than the knowledge that you are being the hands and feet of Jesus in such a tangible way. Nothing.

I'd be so honored for you to help me get there.








Disclamer: You can donate as much as you'd like (which is why it says donate), but the headbands are a minimum of $20. I will not send a headband for under $20. Thanks!

I will definitely make a point to purchase one after vacation. Fabulous work you will be doing - something I have been learning more and more about.

If i can save up some extra moneys I will definitely buy one from you:) my sister in law just got back from a similar trip to Zambia. she absolutely loved it! I'm so excited for you to go!

Lemme get my paycheck on Friday, and then I'll send you some support money, sister! :-)

Taylor Yves said...

hi jen. are they full-circle, stretchy headbands? or the stiff arch kind?

Jennifer said...

They are the stiff arch kind!

Jennifer said...

Girls, you don't know how much I'd appreciate that! It's been a little hard trusting God with it all. I haven't gotten much at all! I know that He has called me to go though....and He will provide.

Emma said...

These headbands are SO cute! It'd be my pleasure to help you get to Ethiopia. Just sent my part via paypal. Remember, "God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus." (Phil 4:19) Don't stress! He's got it covered. =)

Jennifer said...

Thanks ladies!
