Africa Bags

This is Kora Landers
 
And, this is Zeke Landers
 
These are the children, waiting in Sierra Leone, Africa, of my good friends Jody and Andy Landers.
I am sure most of you know their story, but if you don't, I encourage you to read up on it here.
Yesterday they received news that their visas COULD be ready any time in the next couple of weeks, which would put travel dates around three weeks from now. This is INCREDIBLE news. We are all so excited we can barely stand it! But, the price of tickets, like everything else, has gone up, and this time, there are FOUR to purchase. So, we decided to do a little fundraiser for the trip. Jody and a few of us, are "crafting" bags with Africa on them, and a little heart on Sierra Leone. They are VERY cute, and well worth the money! Jody has a link to Pay Pal on her family blog here. And you can read more about the bags there as well. Feel free to e-mail me or leave a comment if you have any questions!
Without further ado, here are the bags!

So - I can get over being jealous of your bag?! I can't use my pay pal right now, but would love to pay CASH. I know, it's a pretty unheard of concept. I can produce two forms of ID. Please put my name on the order list!
