GIVE A BASKET OF HOPE

The Hope Basket includes a gift of rabbits and a starter flock of chickens. Families also receive training and education in the animals’ care to make sure their hope becomes a reality.

The gift of a Hope Basket:

Provides eggs and protein for nourishment
Boosts income through sales of extra eggs and offspring
Passes on the Gift to others, since livestock can multiply quickly

Rabbits are easy to care for and can reproduce in a short amount of time. Chickens lay eggs and provide manure for vegetable gardens. Your livestock donation provides hope for struggling farmers looking for a way out of poverty.

Character Meeples

Back in the spring, I supported a kickstarter for character meeples from MeepleSource.
My meeples finally arrived!

Meeples

I received eight of the witches. The female wizard was a bonus thank you offered when they hit (and surpassed) their goals.
I can’t wait to play Carcassonne with my new meeples! Impetus for another game night!
