We're giving away another basket of some of our most favorite and beautiful things. All in honor of the Congolese mother we don't know, but who needs our support. Read this blog post to learn more about where the proceeds from this basket will go. This collection is worth over $300. Every item was donated by companies and friends who believe in what Reeds of Hope is doing. That means every cent of your $10 donation goes directly to a vulnerable mother in Congo.
