LOVEleigh Giveaway (flannel lumberjacket)
I’m excited to kick off the new year with a giveaway from an amazing local designer! Morgan from LOVEleigh started her clothing company with her two passions; her love for fashion and her commitment to human rights. With both in mind, Morgan set out to build a company that would not only sell her handmade garments (beautiful silk kimono’s, maxi dresses, and soft flannel Lumberjackets like the one above), but with the sale of each garment would help a women in an impoverished country. Morgan travels all around the world to places like Malawi, Zambia, Tanzania, and Mexico. At each of these places she has sought out original fabric from the local women instead of going to large fabric store’s and with the purchase of the fabric it helps these local women make a living.
LOVEleigh dreams of one day building a design house in an impoverished country that can employ local women to hand make the beautiful garments as well as providing housing, food, and education. With the purchase of any LOVEleigh garment you are directly helping in making a better life for these women. And above all of that, a portion of the proceeds from LOVEleigh go to educating, housing and feeding a young boy that Morgan met in Malawai. This will be the second year in a row that Morgan was able to support this young man and give him a better future. How great it that? Fashion with a cause.
Morgan has generously donated the Lumberjacket that is pictured for one of you to win! I myself have one and I absolutely love it!

I myself have made a resolution (if you will) for 2014 to be a year of looking outside of myself for ways to bless someone everyday. I found that as soon as I made this intention to consider others and how I might change someones day even in a small way the circumstances just seemed to present themselves. And bonus? I’ve also been blessed by doing so! It’s only been a few weeks, but I’ve found even little things make a big difference in someones life; bringing dinner to a friend who has had a bad week, offering to babysit to an over tired mom, helping a stranger catch their runaway dog, or giving a listening ear to an acquaintance who just needs someone to share their troubles with.
Giveaway closes 11:59 pm January 23.
