how awesome

In my post below I mention one of the awesome gifts given to us by JR's mom...a handwoven basket from Bolgatanga, a town in Ghana.

I found a website that supplies these, Basket Africa, in case any of you were interested in one of these beautiful baskets.

Per the website: "Proceeds from the sale of our baskets help to provide healthcare, school fees, and community buildings for the weavers and their children."

They truly are a work of art, and like anything handmade, I LOVE it!! We've already used ours and I think it will be perfect to go to the Farmer's Market in the Spring!! How awesome that by purchasing one, we help others! I encourage you to check them out...
