Awesome Vacation Bible School Projects!

Are you looking for a fun, creative Vacation Bible School Project that will truly make a difference for kids?  We can help! Our 2013 Vacation Bible School Project will teach your kids about life in another country and show them that they can change the world!  We'll help you promote your project and even send someone out to talk to your kids.  If you are interested please contact LisaHolbrook@Carolinespromise.net or 336-669-7340.

The Hope Grows Campaign is an effort to build a new building for a school and church in Guatemala City.  This building will not only minister to the 125 kids at Casita Adonai School, but will be used by the children's department at the church there.  When it rains this building floods.  Help us raise the last $50,000 to start construction by October, 2013.  Watch the video below to see a day in the life of Melany who attends both the school and church that this project will benefit.

Make a Difference for Mothers in Guatemala this Mother's Day

If you're looking for a great Mother's Day gift for your Mom, wife, or friend - we can help you out!
Caroline's Promise has a heart to prevent children from becoming orphans.  It's because of this goal that we have developed several programs that equip mothers to provide for their children so that they don't have to face the unthinkable choice of abandoning them.

In 2012, with the help of our friends and donors,  we were able to establish a Sewing Ministry in Guatemala City.  You can read about it here.  These ladies make and sell their product with a portion going into a savings account and a portion going to construction of the new building at the school & church.  We LOVE that they are more than willing to give to this project!  Caroline's Promise finds sponsors in the US who give $100 and combined with the money in their savings account, we are able to provide them with a brand new sewing machine, supplies, and a Women's Devotional Bible.

Our 2nd class will graduate in June and we are looking for people who will sponsor these precious Mamas at $50 or $100 each.   We think this is a great way to honor your Mom or wife on Mother's Day!  With each $50 or $100 sponsorship we will send your loved one a beautiful Card, telling her all about how you  honored her and how that gift is changing the life of a family in Guatemala!  To participate please donate online.  Choose the fund "Guatemala Orphan Projects" - $50 or $100 - and write "Sewing" in the comment box.  Please complete the acknowledgement info so that we know who to send the card to.

This beautiful "Hope" necklace is adjustable (up to 13") and is a fundraiser for our Hope Grows campaign to construct a building for a school and church in Guatemala City.  The necklace is $20 with $14.50 of that being a tax deductible donation to Caroline's Promise.  We also have key chains for $10 that say "Hope".
What a beautiful way to give HOPE to kids in Guatemala!
Order your here.

If you're looking for a gift that will make a difference - check out our fair trade gift items on our website.  These items are made by women from around the world who are paid a fair wage.  We use the profits to support our orphan projects here and in several countries.  Give your Mom a gift that was made by a Mom and is making a difference!

If you live in the Triad - visit our booth at The Spring Folly in
downtown Kernersville this Friday & Saturday, May 3 and 4.  We will be located close to the intersection of Main and Mountain Streets.
