Mend – Invisible Children

“When we purchase a product, we impact more than just ourselves. There is a person behind every purchase, someone affected by our investment. But we never know who that individual is- until now.
On November 2nd, 2009, Invisible Children is altering business and philanthropy as we proudly introduce MEND. MEND is an internationally inspired brand, manufacturing functional and innovative design, while repairing the lives of women in northern Uganda.
Our handbags are story-driven. Every garment carries the name of the seamstress who made it. Each individual name unlocks an online profile of a woman employed by MEND. Through video bios and photos she will share how she is on the mend because of a simple purchase.
The MEND Limited Edition Cinch Bags are available for PRE-ORDER today, arriving at your door in early November. Lead the fashion mutiny and complete your holiday shopping ahead of time with a gift that empowers unlike any other.

MEND is designed to seam a personal connection between products, their creators, and you. MEND is proof that what we wear can- and will- make a difference.

Who made your bag?”

Awaken: September 29th

Last night at Awaken we had a prayer service.  We began our worship with several songs.  After singing some songs we prayed.  We had several prayer stations set up around the room at which we would pray.  At one station, we meditated on a scripture about loving our enemies and praying for them.  We prayed that God would work in our lives and others lives, and that God would bring us into a deeper relationship with one another that revolves around God. We prayed for the “hopes” that we have.  We prayed for situations or problems that arise everyday within our community, nation, and world.  We took some time to simply be still and silent, listening to God.  At one prayer station we made sandwiches for the patrons of the Presbyterian Night Shelter.  While making the sandwiches we prayed for the person who will eat the sandwich, the nutrition they will receive, the hands that will serve the sandwich, and the spirit to serve.  We used the prayer board to share any joys, concerns, or celebrations with each other.  And finally, we prayed for the Invisible Children organization.  We pray for the leadership and all of those involved, including the children.  Along with that our offering for the next three weeks, not including last night will go to Invisible Children.  After a time of prayer we came back together and closed our worship with one last song.  It was a great night!

Awaken: September 22nd

Worship last night was awesome.  We began our worship with several songs (including a few we haven’t sang in a while).  Krystal Rodgers came and talked to us about Invisible Children and her experience with the organization as an intern and roadie.  Check out this link here to go to the Invisible Children website and see more about it.  After a little question and answer session on IC we had a time of prayer and then closed with one final song.
Krystal also shared some things that we can do.  Sign the petition.  We will also be collecting money to send to Invisible Children.  We will be collecting that money the next several weeks.  We are looking into partnering with Texas Wesleyan University in the schools for schools program.  More info to come on all of this in the future, so keep checking back.
