Sunflower Kids: Wine Draw

This will be a closed group to which you can invite any and all of your friends–anyone whom you think would enjoy winning a big batch of wine AND feeding our kids! It’s best that folks whom we invite live near enough that we could deliver their winnings. I am thinking Wyoming, Colorado-ish, and/or folks who might be visiting Lander for the holidays.
What’s a wine draw? You and your friends are invited to drop off a bottle of your favorite wine at Wild Iris (the store). If you don’t live nearby, but want to play, you can send Judi the money and she will purchase it for you. That bottle of wine will provide you ONE opportunity to win all the donated wine, HOWEVER, if you would like more opportunities to win the wine, you can purchase up to 5 more “insurances” at $10 bucks a pop. That will give you 6 chances!!
The last person in the hat wins all the wine! If we gather a huge number of bottles, we will consider splitting the winnings between the last few folks drawn out of the hat.
All the proceeds will go to feed and educate our kids!
This is one drawing where you don’t want your name to be drawn….the longer it remains in the hat, the more likely you will be the winner. The winner will be drawn on during a live Facebook event at Wild Iris. We will let you know if you are still in the hat and you will be welcome to come join us–actually anyone is welcome to join us.
You can purchase the “insurances” with cash or check at Wild Iris when you drop off your bottle OR you can go to the donate link at our web page.
You can drop wine and buy chances at Wild Iris beginning Friday, Nov 24 (Black Friday). The final drawing will be Sunday afternoon, Dec 3rd at Wild Iris. It will be “live” on Facebook! Please, join us.
Thanks!

The Hunger Banquet

Hunger Banquet

May 6. 6:00 at the Methodist Church in Lander, please, join us for a Hunger Banquet. Few leave a hunger banquet feeling full–what is that about? Guests draw a ticket, randomly, assigning them to a high-, middle-, or low-, income tier. The luck of the draw determines the meal that you eat and where you sit–perhaps, on the floor or at a dining table with full service. Please, dress comfortably and come prepared to join in the conversation-it is an interactive event.  Hope to see you and your family there! Register today by clicking the button below. Contact Judi at sunflowerjudi@gmail.com if you have questions.

Sunflower KIds and Kiranyi Beads Partnership

Kiranyi Mama’s beading bracelets.  Thank you to Collin Thompson for the video!  

Kiranyi Beads, Sunflower Kids, and Hill Crest School are partnering to create a sustainable approach to providing educational and nutritional support for the kids!  Kiranyi Beads is the result of collaborative efforts among key volunteers, Isaac, and Elizabeth (founders of Hill Crest), and local Moms.  Together, they have created a beading mentorship program where local mothers of the Kiranyi community go to Hill Crest School and learn traditional Masaai beading skills.  It is through the creation and selling of this beadwork that these women are able to improve the lives of their families.

The Sunflower Kids purchase the beaded bracelets from the Kiranyi Bead project and sell them in their local communities.  100% of the proceeds are donated directly back to the Hill Crest School, to provide food and education for the kids! The direct impact is profound, for every bracelet sold 100 children will be provided a healthy breakfast for two days!! Every sale fulfills the sustainable mission of the Kiranyi Bead Project.

Collin Thompson, who volunteers at Testimony School in Aursha, has facilitated a parnteship with the Kiranyi Bead Project, also.  The women create beautiful bangles which Collin sells.  All proceeds go to provide electricity at Testimony School in Arusha, Tanzania! The women are working hard to make a difference in their community.

If you are interested in a bracelet/bangle, please, contact Judi at sunflowerjudi@gmail.com.  We ask for a minimum $15.00 donation.
