Easter has always been of of my favorite “holidays”. Not because when I was little I got to dress up in a matching easter dresses with my sisters, or go hunt for eggs after church…but I vividly remember in high school a ministry I was involved with did a outdoor live easter demonstration. They had all the characters in the story present and dressed accordingly. They each shared their part in the story and it made Jesus resurrection come to life! Ever since that humid April night, I have truly understood why we celebrate easter.
Every year it’s a reminder of new life, resurrection of new dreams, new mercy, new grace, NEW LIFE.
“remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing, now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert” – Isaiah 43:18-19
Why “bunnies” come to mind when we think of Easter really baffles me, but I’m excited to bring you a NEW way you can have bunnies be a part of your kiddos easter celebration. I hope to bring you something new and fresh the Sara Jane Project seeks to “put a redemptive spin on the bunny obsession that Easter brings.”
When you purchase one of these adorable bunnies, you can rest assured knowing that a woman in Jinja, Uganda [at Tukula!] made them with her own hands. She was not only paid a fair wage but also empowered to be all God has called her to be. Work is so purposeful, and I just delight in thinking about the precious women who made each of these bunnies that now live in my kids room.
Not only that, but the money you spent purchasing this bunny for your little one will go to help place vulnerable children in safe and loving homes! 20% of every purchase goes back to placing children in families by resettlement and adoption. How awesome is that? Each year they chose a family to really bless their socks off and this year it’s the Siegman family adopting domestically. They are bringing home FIVE precious kiddos NEXT MONTH and y’all, I think we can really bless their socks off.
so there you have it friends. a beautiful redemption story. if you have 3 minutes, watch the sara jane story here. this is a story that must be told. such redemption.
buy a bunny. bless a child. build a family.
you have until April 24th to order in time for easter, so order one today!
