The Harambee Basket

CLOSED

In Swahili, the word "Harambee" means "let's pull together." This final basket of 2015 seeks to do just that. One last opportunity to give to the work we're doing in Congo with the chance of scoring this amazing collection! A few of our favorite things to keep for yourself or share with a friend, this basket is valued at almost $400! Every item in this basket was donated so each dollar of your $10 raffle ticket donation will go directly to helping children and families in Congo!  Let's do this! Harambee!
