Noonday Giveaway for the Ragan Family Adoption

When Rachel emailed me about participating in this giveaway I was overly excited!  Kaylee and Colton Ragan are a precious couple that are in the process of adopting a baby from the U.S.  You can read why they are pursuing adoption and more about their story here.  
Kaylee was a Chi O with me at Mississippi State and is a precious friend! Our best friends in Tupelo just walked through adoption eight months ago, so I know how hard the adoption process can be.  I am so thankful to be able to help by something as small as participating in this giveaway.

"Did you know 33% of Americans consider adoption? But less than 2% of people that consider adoption actually move forward with it. The main deterrent is MONEY."

This quote from their website absolutely breaks my heart.  Think of all the precious children that are not being place in permanent loving homes because of money.  

So here is how you can help:

Noonday, ever heard of them? They are a jewelry and accessories company that gives back in big ways. "Together with the Noonday ambassadors across the country, we offer you the opportunity to use your purchasing power to create change in the world {while looking really good along the way}. Your fashion sense can now restore dignity to abandoned women in Ethiopia, empower communities in Ecuador, and create business opportunities for Ugandans." Noonday sells beautiful necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and more, all made by artisans in third world countries. Some of the money from every item bought goes back to these artisans to create a sustainable lifestlye for them and their communities. HOW AWESOME?! Here are some of my favorite pieces! 
Isn't their stuff just so beautiful? Most is all made from materials unique to the area. So some bracelets and necklaces are made from rolled up paper beads, or seeds, or recycled gun metal, or bones of animals! So cool!

HOW CAN YOU HELP THE RAGANS?

Well, let me tell you. If you would like to purchase an item from Noonday, for yourself or for someone else, just follow these simple steps to insure the credit goes to the Ragan Trunk Show!

2. Shop around, pick out your items, and proceed to check out. 
3. In the box asking for an ambassador name, put McCall Aldridge.

Thank you so much for participating in the giveaway! It is such a joy to watch others invest and show interest in this adoption! The Ragan's appreciate it so much!
