There will be a few changes around Blueberry Cottage in the coming year. Good changes, I promise! One of those changes will be the reintroduction of a "sponsorship program". The goal of Blueberry Cottage is to partner with businesses that will help others lead a more simple life, focused on family, self-sufficiency, and creativity while still maintaining a frugal outlook on purchasing.
But, what I am most excited about is that 20% of all income generated by Blueberry Cottage blog will go towards buying farm animals such as chickens, goats, cows and sheep to impoverished families. Also, the purchase of sewing machines will lift a woman out of poverty in places like Ghana, Zambia, or Ecuador. This income will also go towards helping sexually exploited girls from countries such as Cambodia, where their own families sell them into the sex trade for a pittance of money. Lastly, donations will be made for "a safe home" for struggling single moms and their children in countries like Rwanda, Uganda, and Burundi and job training for these women, so they can support their children and free them from the fear of hunger. All this help will be through donations to World Visions Ministries.
A variety of packages to fit the financial needs of small and larger businesses are available for advertising here, you may contact me, Suzanne at email@example.com for more information about this.
Blueberry Cottage blog does reserve the right to turn down requests from businesses that do not fit our criteria of offering products for simple living, family centered living, creativity, healthy food and lifestyles, homesteading and self-sufficiency endeavors and frugality.
“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
~Mathew 25:37-40 (NIV)
