Small Change 4 Big Change
Small Change 4 Big Change is an organization ran by two people that are living with these Guatemalan people, helping them with the resources they need to feed and care for their families. Right now Small Change 4 Big Change is building stoves for the peoples' houses so they cook safely in their houses. The women make their money buy selling these beautiful woven pieces. Beautiful woven cloths created by the Guatemalan women and young girls, for income. They use Perle Cotton # 8 to weave with, we are raising money to buy these women the Perle Cotton so they will not have to use their money.
We have direct contact with the lady that is helping these lovely people, 100% of the money will go to these people to help them make money to care for their families. Carol Skinner, one of the owners of Paw Patch Quilt Shop, has been down to Guatemala to help build the stoves these people need. She has also bought some of the woven pieces that are in the pictures below.As a shop we really feel called to helping these women. They are only paid $7 a day. Carol and her daughter Samantha Ramsier are planning on take either money or suitcases of Perle Cotton to these ladies sometime this year!
