BENEFITING: The Mercy Maternity House, Inc.
Y'all I am training for my first half-marathon and decided to couple my running efforts with this fundraising opportunity. Mercy House is an amazing organization that empowers women around the world in Jesus' name. One of the specific missions they operate is Rehema House in Kenya. They partner with local churches to house pregnant girls + young, new mothers nurturing them along the way. They are able to meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of the girls in these homes because of the support provided by people like us! This is absolutely life-changing for every girl that comes to one of the homes. Mercy House also has a global reach through their Fair Trade Friday club. I've been a part of this club since the beginning. Basically, each month beautiful hand-crafted items are chosen to be wrapped up in little boxes of fabulousness and sent to every club member. The items are carefully chosen from organizations around the world that empower women through education and employment. Women are earning a fair wage and are able to care for their families because of these little packages that go out each month! I would be over-the-moon thrilled if you choose to help support this fundraising goal. I hope to raise at least $20 for each mile I run in the half-marathon on January 30!
