day 50

Todays the day. The LAST day of our #50days50deals campaign. 

Reflecting on our first major campaign we have learned A LOT and we have to admit, we are pretty proud of ourselves.

We are still compiling a list of how many donors we have, products we have made, and money we have raised. When we get the exact numbers we will be sure to let you all know. We do know that we definitely surpassed 50 in total [recurring donations, 1 time donations & products sold]! So, YAY!!

We didn't quite make it to 50 each, but for our first go at being LIVE online and having one employee [our rockstar Sandra] we think we did pretty well.

On the note of our rockstar. Many of you may have noticed Sandra's face in a lot of our pictures. This young women. WOW! We don't even know where to start with our gushing of her.

She not only handmade EVERY SINGLE ITEM, she also modeled every piece, fixed our machine when it decided that it didn't like to work as hard as us, danced and sang with our Country Director every day at work [while discussing life] <--we like to multi-task, and helped our Country Director shop for all of the fabric, thread, buttons, needles, and all the other little things that go into every piece. 

Sandra did all this WHILE attending school. As we have mentioned in a previous post, school is not Sandra's favorite. But, our Country Director [me] is so excited to announce that we are pretty positive Sandra's last year of school is her BEST year of school. Senioritis cannot even dull this lady's drive!

If we at AAD gave out MVP awards it would definitely go to Sandra. While we do give Sandra A LOT of the credit we also cannot forgot to thank all of you! Our donors that have stuck with us since we were just a dream of Megs. Donors that have jumped on board to help our Country Director follow her passion and move to Uganda. To EVERY SINGLE PERSON who bought an item, read our blog, followed us on social media, shared us with friends and family, listened to us rant about bureaucracy, and shared in all our tiny steps that have lead to our big milestones of being a functioning legit international NGO that has product to sell and Ugandan women to hire and aid on following their dreams.

We will end the gushing by leaving this link for all of the last minute items you want to buy:
