Liz and Ben Bohannon are commanding your toes to rejoice. (Yes, that IS their company motto!) Why, you may ask? Because now your toes can be clothed in adorable sandals the Kansas City couple design and market to help raise money to send impoverished Ugandan girls to university. But this isn’t about handouts.

Liz fell in love with the Cornerstone community in Uganda and started a company to raise university funds for them.

Liz and Ben’s company, Sseko (Say-co) Designs, hires these young women for a nine month period between secondary school and university, to live and work together creating the sandals. The money they earn goes toward a university education at Cornerstone Leadership Academy. Three young women — Mary, Mercy and Rebecca — have already earned enough to attend university, with other women soon to follow. The hope is that these educated women will then become leaders who will help bring transformation in their war-torn country.

Liz shares her experience that led to the company:

“During my time in Uganda (on a trip following college), I came across an incredible community called Cornerstone. And in that community there was an incredible group of young women. They were mostly my age.  They became friends.  The commitment of these young women blew me away. I was consistently challenged by the fact that these women saw their education as a gift. They were not only committed to learning their subjects,  but also so committed to learning how to love well. To love each other. To reconcile their lives. To lead their countries.

Cute sandals just like these help change the lives of women in Uganda.

When I came to learn that many of these incredible young women were struggling to find work to finance their university education, Sseko was born.  It seemed so simple. I designed a sandal that I thought was really beautiful.  I was just a small part of a simple solution. Some of these young women are from villages that have never seen one of their own women continue on to university.  All they needed was an opportunity to succeed and earn and save. To work in a place that was dignified and honoring. We make beautiful things. We laugh and we love and we dance and we learn. And every nine months, we let go and we send these incredible women off to pursue dreams of their own.

Although consumerism makes many empty promises, responsible and proactive consumerism has the ability to change lives. Like the lives of Mercy, Mary and Rebbecca.”

And did I mention that Sseko Designs is giving away a $42 gift certificate for Sseko shoes? Here’s how you register for the giveaway: First, go to the Sseko Designs Facebook page and click on “like.” Then go to their website to see all their cute shoe designs. Finally, leave a comment on my blog telling me your favorite Sseko straps. Registration for this giveaway ends 12/22 and we will post the winner’s name on 12/23.



When you are purchasing Christmas gifts, there is someone who resides in your home that must not be forgotten. He faithfully retrieves the newspaper each morning, greets you excitedly at the door every time you return home … No, I’m not referring to your husband. (He’s ALREADY on your gift list!) I’m talking about your dog. He doesn’t want much, maybe just a new toy this year. And when everyone is dressing up in their fancy Christmas duds, your faithful furry friend needs a new outfit. Poochie Heaven can help on both counts. They sell a variety of cute holiday clothes, toys, dog furniture, jewelry (I kid you not!) and more.

Best of all, Poochie Heaven is offering a giveaway! You could win this Frosty the Snowman Dog Tie plus a dog toy! Go to the Poochie Heaven site and then leave a comment on my blog noting your favorite dog outfit. Registration for this giveaway ends December 14 and I’ll post the winner’s name December 15.

I love the name of the company I’m featuring today: Stamped Under the Moon. I don’t know the artist who creates this beautiful hand-stamped jewelry but I’m guessing by the name that she works into the late hours of the night. With family activities, my business and this blog, I can certainly relate to that, though my company name should be “She Wakes Up WAY Before the Dawn!” But I digress … the purpose of this post is another giveaway! In fact, it is such a good giveaway that we are counting it for two days of our 30 day campaign!

We are giving away this lovely Eternity Circle with Birthstones Necklace valued at $46! To register for this giveaway, go to the Stamped Under the Moon website and then leave a comment on my blog post telling me your favorite piece of jewelry (other than the Eternity Circle with Birthstones Necklace!). The company offers some very unique pieces including jewelry for new moms, pet lovers and even personalized jewelry for those who have loved ones with autism. Half of the sale for the latter goes to autism research.

Registration for this giveaway ends December 10 and I’ll post the name of the winner on December 11. So start commenting!
