Hi! Thank you so very much …

Thank you so very much for your generous contribution to Home By the Holidays. With your help we were able to positively change the lives of 229 people!

We visited the women in August. Pictures and updates are on our new website!


The women wanted to be sure that we gave all of you a HUGE thank you for your support! They are happy to be in their new homes! They did share with us that they have faced challenges and lack some basic necessities, making their relocation effort difficult.

Our goal now is to support them in their dream of a fresh start and a new life by providing jerry cans, basins, plates, cups, pans, stoves, bed sheets, blankets, mattresses, a goat, cow, chickens and a family latrine. We put together a new Crowdrise funding site and appreciate if you can share with your friends and family! A goat makes a great Holiday gift!


Thank you again for your support,
Kira and Emily, Brooke, Gabbi, Makenna, Jenny, Dylan, Gianna, Raegan, Julia, Kassidy, Kathryn, Danielle and Blair!

PS If you have are owed a necklace from the women and have not received it, we are so sorry for the delay! The second group of necklaces will ship this weekend. The last group will be picked up in January and shipped in February. Thank you again for your patience!

Thank you so much!! I hope …
Thank you so much!!

I hope you are having a wonderful Holiday and want to thank you for your support. Your donations to HOME BY THE HOLIDAYS and purchases of Paper Bead jewelry enabled us to reach our first fundraising goal of $28,000. We have currently raised $30,497 and hope to reach $43,000 this year!! THANK YOU!!!

We visited Uganda earlier this month to set up the relocation process. The women and their children were SO EXCITED and near tears as they shared what this meant to them. Instead of moving everyone directly home, we transported the women back to the land they had fled and let them show us where they would like their new homes constructed. The journey was emotional and for most it was their first time returning to their old homes, or to where their old homes used to be. In the end, the locations were set and construction started on the first new homes!

You can watch the progress of the hut construction at PAPERbeadsFROMafrica.com.

Thank you again for your support and please watch the thank you greeting our team received upon meeting the women in Kitgum a few weeks ago!


Happy Holidays and thank you for helping to change the lives of so many people across the world!

Thank you!!!
