Savanna Allred volunteered in Cuenca, Ecuador and is now creator of Tossd Salt SprayTM
Says Allred, “After serving the children living in the OSSO orphanage in Cuenca, Ecuador, I could not stop thinking about the angels I met there. Upon my return home I yearned to help in some way but simply could not find an efficient way to contribute. The least I could do to give back to the children who permanently changed my life was to create a community where everyone could easily help. This is the perfect way to easily make a difference. Tossd Salt SprayTM will donate $1 to the OSSO orphanage in Cuenca, Ecuador with every purchase.“ Visit the Tossd Online store.
Melanie Jarnagin volunteered in Cuenca, Ecuador and now creates delicious masterpieces of “Made by Mel Cakes and Cupcakes”.
Says Jarnagin, “When I was in college, I spent a summer volunteering in the orphanages in Ecuador with a group called Orphanage Support Services Organization (OSSO). It was a humbling and life-changing experience to say the least.
In my attempt to pay it forward, I will be donating 15% of sales to OSSO to support funding for those orphanages. When you buy a cake from me, you will not only be able to enjoy my delicious creationg, but you will also help support the children of OSSO.” Visit the Online Bakery.
Chelsea Hamblin volunteered in Cuenca, Ecuador and is now the designer and seamstress of Seaport Stitches.
“I started an etsy shop November 2014 because I love sewing and I wanted to do something that allowed me to continue to stay home with my boys. I decided to donate 5% of my profits to OSSO shortly after opening my shop. Why OSSO? I was a volunteer in Cuenca, Ecuador at the beginning of 2008. I was able to see first hand the good that this organization does for the children. It is a great cause and I strongly believe in and support their efforts to help the children living orphanages. I wanted to do anything I could to give back because my personal experience with them was so great.” Visit Seaport Stitches Etsy shop.
