Little Flower Projects

"The King will reply, I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me."
Matthew 25:40

Least--smallest in significance.

There is a rather large population of the "least of these" in China today.  They are, for many different reasons, considered small in significance to most of the people living around them.

And then there is Little Flower Projects.  A light in the darkness, a refuge for the forgotten, a place of healing for the hurting.  I first came to learn of Little Flower Projects several months ago from facebook.  I saw others sharing the amazing photos and captions.  I quickly "liked" their page and everyday since have smiled or teared up due to their updates.  (If you are on facebook take a minute to find and "like" them.)  And since, you are obviously a blog HERE and be sure to follow their blog.

It is an amazing thing to see the unloved being loved.

It was about this same time that my brother shared a Mother Teresa quote with me.

"How can there be too many children?  That's like saying there are too many flowers."

Something about that quote struck a chord with me.  I thought of how unique flowers can be.  How a bouquet can lighten up any room and bring it cheer.  I began to see the correlation. :)

So as we began to work on a new shirt design aimed at Mother's day, I could think of no better quote to use and no better group to support than this one that is being "mothers" to so many without.  Therefore, the proceeds of this new shirt design will go to Little Flower Projects and the work they do.

We chose to do two designs.  We wanted this shirt to appeal to as many moms, grandmothers, aunts, friends as possible so we have one with "got love? adopt." because that is the heart of Minus 1 Project's message but also one without to celebrate children in general.

Soft, lightweight heathered lilac tee (fits true to size).

We are ready to begin taking preorders and will be sure that your shirts arrive before Mother's Day.  If ever you've considered a purchase from Minus 1 Project, now is the time.  Your purchase will help support a group of women, an ocean away,  that are daily being the hands and feet of Jesus and a mother to "the least of these".
