29,000

Remember the Ultimate Blog Party hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom last month? Well, I was the lucky door-prize winner of a handmade pin by Christelle Lachapelle.



Gorgeous, eh?

Not only do I adore the pin, I also fell in love with Christelle's vision. From the back of her pin card:

Every day, around the world, 29000 innocent and helpless children under the age of 5 die from hunger and preventable illness. 29% of the purchase price of this item will be donated to World Vision, to help children all over the world receive the food and medical attention they need to live and grow.

On top of that, at least 50% of the materials Christelle uses in her creations are either vintage or recycled. What an outstanding gal!

Thanks, Christelle!
