bundle and co + a giveaway

I'm excited to share a new company I've recently discovered with you. My favorite shops have both quality products and a good cause: Bundle and Company has both! Bundle and Company sells adorable snuggle blankets and teething necklaces. AND a portion each purchase goes to help a family adopt! 'Loveable products that share the love' - yes please.

Bundle and Company partners with Christian adoptive families through their Adoption Aid Program. They are committed to helping families regardless of where they are in the process, even for post-adoption needs like counseling. (You can check out this program here email Lisa for an application if you're interested!) I love their heart for all types of adoption (domestic, international, and foster-to-adopt) and their desire to see as many children find their forever families as possible.

Lisa, founder of Bundle and Company, shared a little of her story with me:



Adoption has not always been a passion of mine. I’m not even sure I was aware of it as a young person, but as I grew up and traveled overseas, God used some beautiful people and children to help cultivate a passion for orphan care and adoption in my heart. In 2005, I went to Latvia for a month with a group of girls. To have a group of college girls come and do mission work there was a big deal to them. They even wrote a story about us that was on the front page of the newspaper the next morning!

While I was there, we lived and worked in different orphanages around the country. In one of the orphanages, the older girls gave up their beds so that we would have a place to sleep. Talk about humbling. We were in awe.

One of the things that stands out the most in my mind is when we visited the ‘baby home.’ This was a place with about 150 children, ages 0-4, with only a handful of caregivers. I’ll never forget one little boy named Andrew. He was about 18 months, red rosy cheeks, big blue eyes…he was so precious. For some reason he was upset and just couldn’t stop crying. The caregivers don’t normally tend to the children when they’re crying because they teach the kids early on to take care of themselves. I was determined to help little Andrew feel better. What helps soothe kids? Singing! I knelt down in front of him, grabbed his little hands, and started singing Jesus Loves Me. I sang it over and over again, and his eyes were locked on mine. As I continued to sing, he calmed down. His tears stopped, but mine were flowing. I wept as I sang Jesus Loves Me and watched this little boy be overcome with peace. I knew in that moment that the love of Christ crosses language barriers. Andrew was experiencing the love of Jesus through a song, through human touch, through love and compassion. When I was finally done singing, I looked up at Andrew and saw the faintest hint of a smile. It makes me smile just thinking about it! When I returned to the States and had time to reflect on my time in Latvia, I realized that I left America excited to help orphans, but returned with a passion for orphan care and adoption. These experiences played a huge part in my husband and I launching Bundle. God works in really cool ways.

I love the way Lisa and her company are pouring into the lives of children and adoptive families! If you want to buy one of their snuggle blankets but doesn’t have a friend or relative to buy for, their Double Your Impact program is a perfect choice. You can purchase a blanket that will be donated to a child in need, and at the same time you will be helping a family with their adoption-related expenses. It’s a win-win!

And guess what?! One lucky reader will win a sweet blanket of their choice. All you have to do is share this blog post...easy as pie to get your hands on one of these cozy snuggle blankets.
