Make a Change

blog-3Good thing I work at home.  If I was at 4031 I am doubtful anyone would want to share an office with me. I’m quite good at leaving a mess wherever I go. But it’s not really a mess. It takes a bit to get into your groove. So things have to marinade a bit. And moving it/putting it away really defeats the purpose of a great marinade.

If you haven’t checked out our auction for The Mighty Acorns, please do so. I’m sure quite a few of you may wonder what the Mighty Acorn Foundation is. To sum it up, we are fighting to restore hearts, ignite dreams and empower the futures of children across the world. Pretty powerful, huh? And you can help us! At the moment we are raising money to help add large water filtration system to the new kitchen and dining hall that will be built. I love the story of how this whole Kitale love fest began, read about it here. Pretty much just one girl, a customer, asking for a donation. Simple yet powerful.

BLOG1Yes, all you Matilda Jane girls did it again. Had one mom not asked me to donate a few dresses 100+ girls in Kitale would still be sleeping in the slum of Kitale frightfully wondering what lay ahead of them. It’s all it takes. Just ask the question. Be the difference. Be powerful. We can make things happen. I think that may be the best part of watching Matilda Jane grow. The more we grow the more we can give. The more we can empower women and girls around the world. And I’m not sure about you…but I believe Matilda Jane has the best moms out there. You inspire me everyday!

Speaking of moms….BLOG2You ladies can shoot Lauren an email at with your mailing info and she’ll get a little gift out to you!

I’ve got to call it a short night and short post. I’m exhausted!
