Hello everyone!

A week ago I returned from a mission trip to a small town in Honduras.  We have already scheduled our next trip, so let the fundraising begin! We are a small church, so it takes a lot of effort to raise the money to pay for our room and board, flight, and activities for the kids/ work around the village that we are able to complete once there.  This year we held a Vacation Bible School during the day and built a feeding center for children in the afternoon.  We also were able to do 50 food drops for local families.  All of this with just a 9 member team!! 

I am trying to think of ways to fundraise for our next trip, and I stumbled upon this website.  I was wondering if anyone has suggestions for me?  I am kind of crafty, I enjoy scrapbooking and making small projects.  I am hoping by starting this project and collecting ideas early, I will be able to significantly contribute to our trip for next year.  I was hoping to think of a project that incorporates the trip in some way, but I am at a loss.  We have wonderful pictures, so a craft involving photographs would be great.  I just want to think of something that will sell and make a great fundraiser.  Any ideas for me, anything will help!

Thank you so much for taking the time to read my post, it is greatly appreciated!
Help us help the children of Honduras!

Matthew 19:14
Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these."

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Not sure what size projects you need but what about:

Key chains, magnets, embroidered tea towels or pillowcases, wrap beaded bracelets
