Bees in our Bonnet!

HDIF would like to give an huge shout out to our friends in One Armenia who just completed their ‘Santas Wanted’ campaign with success beyond all expectations thanks to lots of wonderful people around the globe. When we planned the campaign last year, we estimated that we would need perhaps 40 of these cute little crocheted bees that are to be packaged with jars of honey from Sahman NGO. Well, in the end, the ladies of the Berd Women’s Resource Center Foundation made over 80 of them! A big thanks goes out to all of those involved in the very successful campaign. Let’s keep up this fruitful cooperation for the benefit of hardworking groups around Armenia! One Armenia website Sahman NGO on Facebook

Manush in Goghovit is busy!!

Only a couple of days before Christmas, and Manush up in Goghovit is knitting up a storm! One Armenia approached HDIF a few months ago and asked if we could produce a series of knitted hats and scarves with Ughtasar rock paintings on them for use in their Santas Wanted! campaign. Of course we can!   Not knowing how many of these sets of great hand made products would be sold, we started carefully with 5 pairs of socks and 5 hats. Then the campaign took off, and we had to order 5 more, then 10 more, then 20 more! So far, we are at about 40 sets of Manush’s hats and socks which will go to kids in Armenian villages.   Manush is knitting like crazy up in Goghovit! Make your contribution to Manush’s success by going to: Santas Wanted!

BLACK FRIDAY! Help out an Armenian Kid!

IT IS BLACK FRIDAY! Click here: OneArmenia Santas Wanted! to help out a kid in Armenia. HDIF wants to offer you the chance to funnel some of that Black Friday mania into something good, really good. Rather than elbowing each other out at the local shopping center for the cheapest possible new plastic something, how about giving some sorely needed support to people in Armenia? HDIF and One Armenia have teamed up with several others to help you help a kid in an Armenian village. The products from HDIF come from the women from the last of the Armenian families to leave Kobane in Syria, a disabled woman from a village in Shirak, and women of the Berd region where sniping across the border is a daily occurrence. Come on, help out a kid!
