Online Auction Today...Check Out This Ethiopian Dress/Doll Combo...Currently at $50. Keep the bids coming :)

 Online silent auction starts now. You will be bidding on the gorgeous handmade dress from Ethiopia, above, that comes with the handmade Ethiopian doll pictured below. This is a combo set. One bid for both.
 I purchased these items in December while I was in Ethiopia.


 My niece is modeling this awesome dress. I love the detail throughout it. Notice the top picture for the detail on the front of the dress. She wears a size 3t, so I figure this dress would fit anywhere from a 2t to a small 4t child.
 It comes with a matching headwrap.
 And it also comes with an Ethiopian doll in her own fancy, handmade dress and headwrap.
 Lucy made friends with her ;) so I will name this dolly Lucy Lu after my niece, Lucy Lane :-)

So don't miss out on this great combo! Remember every penny that comes in from this silent auction will be used as a matching grant for one of our Fundraising Affiliates. These folks are raising funds through the OH fundraising program to aid in the cost of bringing home their adopted children or they are raising funds to travel on a mission trip to serve children in need in other countries. So, not only will you receive this awesome dress/doll combo, you will literally be doubling someones money to help bring them closer to their adopted child or children they will serve through missions. This is a great cause!

Place your bid by leaving a comment on this post. Bid is starting at $40. Please bid in at least $5 increments. This auction will end at midnight tonight.  Make sure to email me at Kelly@ordinaryhero.org if you are the winner and give me your contact info.

Have fun bidding :-)

  3. Just wanted to say that my daughters both have a similar doll. When I was shopping in Ethiopia for it, I asked the shopkeeper what the name of the doll was. He handed the doll to my oldest daughter (age 5 at the time) and as she smiled he said "This doll is Desta (happy)."
