The heritage basket is especially for adoptive families. Every item was donated by friends of Reeds of Hope. That means that every dollar you spend on raffle tickets will go directly to supporting vulnerable families in Congo!

"Karibu" is the Swahili greeting used all over East Africa. It is the warmest way to greet a friend or family member. Hang this beautiful hand carved plaque near your entry to bring a bit of Africa into your home!  

We've said it before, we'll say it again.... We LOVE the Congolese Keepsake Cookbook. From delicious, authentic recipes, to beautiful photographs, to places to records special memories, this book belongs in every home connected to Congo. 

We've been holding out on these cards for something super special... and we think this basket is just it. Handmade from banana leaves in Eastern Congo, these Christmas cards are one of kind. Perfect to send to loved ones or to slip into a small frame to use as Christmas decor. Two of each design are included with craft paper envelopes.
