Women At Risk - 2nd annual Event for the Junque Gypsies

Saturday, February 8th   from 9:00am - 3:00pm,
the Junque Gypsies proudly host 
Women At Risk Charity Event

"Women at Risk, International (WAR, Int'l) is a U.S. - based, non-profit organization.  We currently work in over 31 countries creating havens of safety and healing for at-risk woman and children.  Our purpose and passion is to give voice to the silenced cries of the oppressed, wrap arms of love around them, and whisper messages of purpose and dignity into their brokenness.    Through culturally sensitive, value-added intervention projects and programs, WAR, Int'l offers these women and children an opportunity to live life with dignity.  Although specifically known for our fight against human trafficking and rehabilitating work with trafficking victims, WAR, Int'l addresses 14 different risk issues facing women and children today."

"One of the main ways we help at-risk women is by selling products made by and sold in support of these precious women. Buying the work of their hands gives rescue as well as life, freedom, dignity, and a new start. Each $250 in jewelry sales allows us to employ a rescued woman in a safe environment for a month."

Please join us on Saturday, February 8th

Headboards....Sweet Dreams

I (Erin) love watching "Alaska The Last Frontier" - and how they are constantly building something, or reinforcing something.  But they go to their "pile" and find the things they need.   So I am posting some great headboard ideas that are made from recycled items.  You will even see one from old Chevy doors.
