{even MORE opportunities to make a difference!}

Happy Tuesday! I just wanted to pop in to let you know about two more great opportunities to get involved, make a difference, and win some cute Poppie Lane accessories! There are two awesome online auction/giveaways going on this week, each featuring a different Poppie Lane item!


First, Kim from Change Me is doing a BIG giveaway to benefit El Olam Orphanage in Ethiopia.

El Olam has many many needs as do most of the orphanages in Ethiopia. In her own words...

"this particular orphanage has many immediate needs... MANY new beds, mattresses, blankets, sheets, pillows, paint, a storage room for the children's personal things, shelving, a refrigerator, more nannies... and that's not all. Trust me.... what El Olam really needs is funds on the ground there so that they can purchase items locally, have furniture made, and update the orphanage and make it much more comfortable for the children. Because they deserve it. If a child is in an orphanage, they have suffered through extensive and unfair pain already in one way or another... and the very least that they deserve is a bed to sleep in, food to eat, clothes to wear, and someone to take care of them. Those are the basics that every child should never have to go without."

You can help! Kim is hosting a giveaway on her blog all week. All you need to do to enter the giveaway is donate a minimum of $10. Click here to check out the amazing items, help a worthy cause, and maybe win a Spring Pink Poppie Lane headband!

Second, the Simon family is hosting a spring auction to raise funds for their African adoption.

They are still praying about whether to adopt from Ethiopia or Uganda and are in the fundraising stage of the process. You can click here to read their blog and check out all the amazing items in their auction. Click here to enter a bid to win the Poppie Lane  Denim Blue Rosette Clip and Rose Bud Earring Set! :)

Hope you will stop by each of these blogs and either enter the giveaway/auction or at least pray for these wonderful causes. :)
