Name Dropping Wednesday #2

I can't believe it's already Wednesday!
So here is round 2 of showing thanks to those who deserve some thanks!

The Pulsera Project is a family who turned a vacation into an incredible journey to color the world. Much like tukula they work with people in Nicaragua to create jobs and care for Nicaraguan Communities. We're in the process of working with them to help provide more jobs in Uganda. They are a very encouraging and genuine bunch who do what they do out of such a joyful spirit. We are SO THANKFUL for all the way ways they have come alongside of us.

 I was "surfing the web" one day when I came across Moriah's etsy shop. She makes amazing jewelery and scarves and other fun accessories. On item that really caught my eye was a necklace with a Singer Sewing Machine Charm on it. The same singer sewing machine that the ladies of tukula use. I promptly bought 5 of them for the ladies and can't wait to give them to them the next time we visit. Moriah was so sweet when I made my purchase and didn't make me pay for shipping and put such a sweet note in the package. She has also allowed for us to advertise for free on her blog! We are currently working on a partnership with her to get these singer sewing machine necklaces to all of you! These little things that Moriah has done has added up to a whole lot of joy for us!

We are so thankful for everyone who encourages us!

Name Dropping Wednesday

We want to shout out to a few companies and people who have really just been hardcore tukula friends. People who have done little things and big things to spread the word about tukula. We would love to make this a weekly props where props are due.

The Little Bee Company: Whether you like cloth diapers or not you will want to check out the little bee co. They are are straight up legit and good people. They love others on the other side of the world that they don't even know. The little bee co. has come along side tukula in a way that has really encouraged us personally and have helped to give the ladies consistent work and income every month.  We feel really blessed to be a small part of what they do!

 Jamie The Very Worst Missionary: When we started advertising on Jamie's hilarious blog we got more hits on our website than we ever had before. Even when we couldn't pay for ad space she has continued to support us by spreading the tukula word. She has been really easy to work with and lets us change our ad as many times as we want and always says they are beautiful! If you are look for a place to advertise you business or company I HIGHLY suggest contacting Jamie.

 Check the blog next Wednesday to hear about more amazing people who have really encouraged us!
