The backstory is: I'm going to Africa next year! For as long as possible (sky is the limit, but realistically hoping for >2mo.)... My itinerary includes a refugee camp and orphanage in Kenya, inner city program & wildlife rehab center in South Africa, a lion reserve in Zimbabwe, and various other orphanages and wildlife programs if I can get there. Needless to say, this takes a good deal of money. I have enough saved for my plane tickets and miscellaneous supplies, but now I need to start hacking away at the program fees (all the programs are volunteer-funded.) I'm working my butt off, applying for a second job, and scrimping everywhere, but I also have to fundraise. In a desperate attempt to not flat-out beg for money, I'm getting creative!
Introducing coffee bag wallets!!!!
Cute, practical, great-smelling, and very eye-catching... Made from recycled coffee bags, very eco if you're into that :P I'm on eBay and Etsy, but if anyone on IC wants to buy one through Paypal I would be happy to bypass those sites to save us both the fees
