W.PORTFriday I visited with the Emily Bean, the owner of W. Port in Roswell, she purchased bracelets from MOP as gifts and to sell in her boutique. I was referred to W. Port by Maggie Bellville. Emily recently opened W. Port, a dream come true for her. You can check out W.Port on Facebook, or stop by at 3232 Roswell Rd. It is a very cool boutique.
Emily thanks for your support and thanks for taking the time to hear the MOP story. Kwame, Renee and all the children are very grateful.
THE CATHEDRAL BOOK STORE @ ST. PHILLIP's
If you've not been to the Cathedral Book Store at St. Phillips on Peachtree Road, it is certainly worth a visit. I came to know this store when frequenting the St. Phillip's Farmer's Market on Saturdays and it is a treat. They have a diverse and unique inventory and during the holidays it is even better.
I took a chance, walked in, asked if they would be interested in selling the Mawuivo's rosaries and bracelets and yes, indeed they were. I met one of the buyers, Susan, she like Emily at W.Port took time to hear the MOP story, and she was excited to see the bracelets and they purchased them to sell during the holidays. Each one will be sold with one of the MOP cards, that has all the contact information, the website, etc.
As most of you know, every dollar raised from the sale of the bracelets supports the operating expenses for the education, lunch program and basic medical care (when needed) for sixty children in Kissemah Village, Ghana.
Currently Mawuvio's operates their primary education school on the porch and courtyard of Ceci's home in Kissemah. We are 80% of the way completed on the construction of a "proper" school facility, a building that will support 100 students.
THANKS THANKS THANKSThanks to all who have provided support, donations, encouragement and prayers. If you have any questions, know of any groups, organizations, churches, schools that would like to hear the MOP story, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
