Established Signs / Feed an Orphan in Uganda


Established Signs





These hand painted wooden signs come in an assortment of colors, fonts, and themes.  The original sign, and still my favorite, is black with rustic white lettering, stating your family name and when it was established.  They’ve now added other new themes, like favorite sports teams, universities, and adoption.  You can purchase one already made or have one custom painted.

Why I Like This:

My friend Karla is one of those crafty moms.  Chances are, when you’re over at her house, you’ll see something that you love, ask about it, and hear offhandedly, “Oh, I made it.”  She had this sign over her kitchen window that everyone loved, and she realized that she could start making signs for other people.  And my favorite part: Karla and her husband, Donnie, are Adacar sponsors.  In fact, Donnie’s been to Adacar, Uganda with me, and he and Karla have been huge supporters and advocates from early on in our partnership with Children’s HopeChest.  Each sign that Karla sells feeds a child in Adacar for a month.  She’s recently taken on a partner, an equally awesome person named Missy, and they are rolling out the signs.  Made with love, filled with fabulous, and feeding orphans.

Slave-Free Christmas Challenge:

This Christmas, I’ve challenged myself to shop my entire Christmas list from organizations that are helping people, not hurting people.  Today, 27 million men, women, and children live as someone else’s property.  Slaves are making the items that I’m buying to celebrate the birth of my Lord and Savior.  Somehow I don’t think He’s blessed by the blood on His birthday presents.  For more information on my Slave-Free Christmas project, click here.
