"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11
I hope this blog finds you well. As always I want to thank you - my friends, my family and my extended family - my customers/supporters. As I began this quest to open my own store I had a very different vision - one of fashion and glamour and world travel. Over the last couple of years, the vision for my life's work has changed - yes, I still have a passion for fashion and fun but more importantly, I want happiness and I want to help others find that same happiness. So, please out of all the blog posts you read - this one can change a life!
I would like for us all to get to know a young lady whom I never had the chance to meet - Mckinsey Cook. Her life was cut too short too soon, but her legacy and purpose continues to grow in places most of us will never see but we now have the chance to experience changing. Before her life on earth ended, this young lady traveled to Uganda and fell in love with the people and the amazing opportunity to do God's work and serve in the area. In her honor, The Mckinsey Foundation has been established as a way to continue to serve. This foundation is fairly new and really needs our help! Please take the time to follow the link below to fully understand the work that still needs to be done in this area of the world. The children of Uganda need basic necessities that we often take for granted - water, food, shelter and an education!
Too Belles would like to do our part as well...this week, $2 from EVERY in-store or online purchase will be donated to the Mckinsey Foundation. In addition, use discount code MCKINSEY for 10% off your entire purchase starting Monday, September 5th - Sunday, September 11th. If you don't feel the desire to shop, then please donate directly to the foundation.
As I look at my own life, I continue to feel blessed beyond measure. I continue to feel God's hand guiding me through this life and I am EXCITED to practice obedience and serve others. It is my hope that you will be inspired to do the same - if not by me, then by Mckinsey.
Thank you for every little penny and prayer!
