From Our Village to Your Tree

'Tis the season when it's time to start pulling out the Christmas decorations and gearing up for the holiday season ahead.  This year, we are excited to announce a new and unique way to support New Day Foster Home this holiday season.  We are partnering with Scarlet Threads, and anything you purchase through our affiliate link on their site will earn New Day Foster Home a 20% commission.  Spend $20 and New Day Foster Home gets $4.  Spend $100 and we receive $20.  It's a simple way for you to do some Christmas shopping and help support our foster home at the same time. 

But it's more than that, too.  When you purchase products from Scarlet Threads, you are supporting the work of their partner artisans.  Everything Scarlet Threads produces is made right here in our little village of Qingyundian by some of our friends and neighbors.  Scarlet Threads pays the artisans a fair wage for their work, so you can feel good knowing that what you purchased wasn't made at the cost of someone else's well-being.  Deng makes beautiful handmade aprons like the one pictured above, and Lao Yan makes these amazing Christmas ornaments... twisting Chinese characters with meanings like Faith, Hope, Love, Gift, and Joy out of little pieces of colorful wire.  Our Foster Home Christmas trees are going to be decked out with some of his handiwork this year, and your tree can have some of the same touches of China.

In addition to paying their partner artisans fairly, Scarlet Threads gives back to adoption and orphan care related causes with the profits of their work.  They support adoptive families by providing a generous fundraising program with zero risk and have given several adoption grants to in-process families.  They've also partnered with us to meet various medical and surgical needs of children here at New Day. 

In short, it's a little company with a big heart that was started right here in New Day's hometown, and we're excited to be partnering with them this year.  We hope you enjoy doing some of your Christmas shopping at Scarlet Threads... just don't forget to use our affiliate link so that we can earn a 20% commission off anything you purchase!
