Did You Know - Bridal Bouquet

For ancient Greeks and Romans, the bouquet was a pungent mix of garlic and herbs or grains. The garlic was supposed to ward off evil spirits and the herbs or grains were to insure a fruitful union. In ancient Poland, it was believed that sprinkling sugar on the bride's bouquet kept her temper sweet.

Just look at all of those prizes!

An entire village will no longer have to worry about the water they are feeding their families. Or worry that they may loose a loved one due to the contaminated water they consumed.

So while you are out getting all those last minute, nice, shiny, expensive, gifts will you also consider giving water this Christmas?

And if you missed your chance last week to donate for your chance to win some pretty cool prizes, don't worry cause you've got another chance! Project 320 is having a bonus bundle giveaway with prizes worth over $1000!

Help Give the Gift of Water this Christmas

Project 320, what is it all about?

Now glory be to God! By His mighty power at work within us, He is able to accomplish infinitely more than we would ever dare to ask or hope.
Ephesians 3:20
Let me share the details!

We are going to build a well.
Will you help us build a well?

$5,000 fully funds a well. A well that can save 500 lives. Change an entire village.
Forever!

How you ask?
Generous, creative and caring women from all over the country have been sewing, knitting, painting, crafting, shopping, blogging, praying. Donating. Over 300 items. Handmade and heartfelt happiness.

Starting December 14th and ending December 18th.

Project 320 will be holding a virtual raffle.
15 prize bundles with over 20 items each!

Each $10 donation to the well earns one virtual ticket. SERIOUSLY YOUR $10 WILL CHANGE LIVES. You get to choose how many "tickets" to buy and which prize package you want to win.

On December 21st winners will be drawn.

But most of all, we will celebrate the victory.
The promise of clean water for a village.
Life.

Are you excited?
You should be!!!!
Because it is going to be awesome.
