Lady in Red Ring

Lady in Red Ring

Notes from the Artist:

A cherry red Swarovski colored crystal looks absolutely stunning on this adjustable silver toned band. The crystal measures 3/8 of an inch – perfect for every day wear, but so sparkly, it calls attention to itself all the time. The band adjusts on top of the finger for a comfortable fit – no pinching! Nice and sturdy, these stack well. See the last photo for other color choices.

This listing is for 1 red ring. Convo me if you’d like your own custom listing.

Please shop generously – for you and for them! With this purchase you could help provide provide foster care for children orphaned by HIV/AIDS in Cape Town, South Africa.

People of the Book

http://tinyurl.com/yln7sue

Temple Sinai’s People of the Book Literacy Project was founded in the Spring of 1998 with the mission of helping Oakland’s school children learn to love reading and books.

We partner with five elementary schools in the Oakland Unified School District: Santa Fe School, Lazear School, Think College Now, International Community School, and Greenleaf School.We work toward our mission in many ways:

  • More than 30 tutors meet with over 70 students each week throughout the school year.
  • We give 3000 books directly to students each year, and also donate many books to classrooms and school libraries.  We provide weekly magazine subscriptions to every student at two schools, and donate magazines to a third school’s library.
  • Library volunteers help by processing and shelving donated books. (We have stocked four school libraries with attractive, quality books.)
  • Teen volunteers provide academic help and companionship at an after-school homework center at Lazear School.
  • Over the years, our volunteers have visited classes to read stories as well as to provide art and music enrichment. We have donated supplies for schoolwork, sports, and art projects.
  • With our congregation’s generous cash donations we have bought microscopes for a science class; arranged author assemblies and school-wide magazine subscriptions; purchased books, reading incentives like bookmarks and classroom materials; and have donated carpeting, posters, and beanbag chairs for libraries.
  • In cooperation with other groups, we also have provided much needed social services: arranging delivery of 150 bags of food a week to one school, conducting a holiday Adopt-a-Family project as well as a food drive for the winter break, and making school-site improvements as part of the Temple’s annual Mitzvah Day project.

EFC Team donated $33.00 to People of the Book in December.

 Mini Heidi Klummies

Mini Heidi Klummies

Notes from the Artist:

Cute mother of pearl earrings with sterling silver components. Can also be made with gold filled components. Most of my profits (about 50% of what you pay) are donated to Compassion International, a non profit that gives hope to children living in poverty through one-on-one sponsorship. One of my most popular earrings, I promise they’ll be one of your go-to earrings… and you can’t beat the price at $9.
