We recently featured two Mitzvah Finds that have something in common: linking your past to your present for your child's Mitzvah. Here are the cliff notes:
DreamAKippah.com is a Website with what we think is a great idea! The team behind the site can make customized, handmade and heirloom quality kippahs, tallit clips, necklaces, earrings and bracelets by incoprorating a special piece of jewelry that you provide them with. Together, you can create a product with a special link to the past. Check out the full story!
Greenpurse is a unique Website. The owner/designer Tina Wick creates one-of-a-kind handbags and accessories by recylcing pre-used fabric. All of her creations are just unique and innovative. You can purchase handbags from her Website or you can special order The Custom Bag....
Tina will create a custom handbag using fabric from your heirloom clothing such as a wedding dress or a favorite sweater. By creating a handbag out of an existing treasure (that would otherwise hang in the back of your closet or sit in a box in your attic), Tina is allowing you to carry a handbag that is "current" with a story all its own. We think that there is some Mitzvah potential to a custom Greenpurse creation! Check out the Greenpurse Website, and we think you will be inspired! Check out the full story!
