Pennies & a Prayer

It's been 3 and a half years (2006) since I first heard about the "Pennies & Prayer Inheritance Fund" (PPIF) at BC's annual May Inspirational Day. In 2006 it was hosted by First United Mennonite Church, Vancouver, (FUMC).
Read the full story of PPIF by clicking on the full name just above.
Being actively involved with the Women's Ministry at Sherbrooke Mennonite Church (SMC) it was decided, that very day, that this fund was something that SMC's women would love to participate in.

Sooooo..... during the summer I got busy and prepared a little something for Sherbrooke's Women's Ministry.
I had heard of this great store called Essential Packaging.
How to pick from so many beautiful choices?
What would work best for the idea in my head?
In the end I went with a 3in. x 3in. square little, red box. See below!

It was fun decorating them!

The names of the 2 recipients are on the front of the box and a description of where and what they were doing is on either side with the PPIF logo on the back of the box.

When September came and the Women's Ministry started up again at Sherbrooke M. Church, the little red boxes were ready and waiting for them.
Each women was free to sign up and take a box. They were a hit!

Since then, my husband & I have moved to Abbotsford, BC and I don't know if this collection is still a part of the Women's Ministry at Sherbrooke but if any other women's group likes this idea, please feel free to use it. You can pick the packaging, colour and size!
But remember.... there is a NEW recipient and you will have to update the information on the little box!


Blessings to all of you!
