Give Twice : Personal Treasures by Phyllis Mufson & Etsy
Red Coral and Gold Necklace by Personal Treasures, $195.00
I was so glad when Phyllis Mufson of Personal Treasures contacted me about her gorgeous line of jewelry and her Etsy gift guides, both of which foster giving twice.
When you purchase a piece of jewelry through Personal Treasures 100% of the profits will support Phyllis' husband Bill Lawhorn's volunteer work with orphaned children of Liberia, West Africa. Phyllis says, "We have already raised enough to buy 400 lbs. of rice and other staples for the “Charity Orphanage” in Robertsport, Liberia." In early 2009 Bill will be traveling to Liberia to start working with the children, transferring much needed supplies and helping the orphanage to sustain itself.
Through her blog, Personal Treasures, you'll be able to read updates about Bill Lawhorn's progress in Africa and also learn about other Etsy sellers who are using their handmade wears to give back to great causes. Phyllis has already compiled really great Etsy gift guides including:
