Looming for Cambodia

My brother, Anthony has been serving a church mission in Phnom Penh, Cambodia for nearly six months now. In September 2015, he will complete his mission and our family is planning to go pick him up there. Everyone is very excited and is doing their part to save up for the momentous trip, including my 10-year-old sister, Holly. Holly is an avid bracelet loomer and can make very intricate designs, so she's decided to use her skill to help her earn money for this trip. We love the idea of her learning to be responsible and work for something she really wants, so we're in full support of her efforts and we hope you would be willing to help, too. I understand this may not be what you would normally feel inclined to purchase, but this will be the chance of a lifetime opportunity to help Holly be able to visit the homeland of her parents for the first time and experience a world apart from her own. We're also planning to do a service project there, which will be a meaningful activity to do as a family. I know for a fact that it will be an absolutely eye-opening and potentially life-changing experience for her. Plus, it would make a great hand-crafted gift for someone special!

The cost is $3 per bracelet (plus postage), and we will give a $0.25 discount for each additional bracelet you purchase. Please let me know if you would like to purchase one in the comment box. Include the name of bracelet, colors, quantity, size (adult, child, baby) email address, and home address. We will send you a bill through Paypal or you can write a check if you prefer. We will be mailing these if you are out of the Utah county area. Please let us know and we'll add on postage. Donations are also welcomed. Her goal is to raise $800 which will go towards airfare and a service project. It is a tough goal, but she is certainly willing to work for it and with your help, she can! We will keep you updated monthly on how far she gets. Thanks for all of your help!!!
