The God’s Child Project is an organization based out of Bismarck, N.D., started by MSUM alumnus Patrick Atkinson. Since it began in 1991, the project has worked to clothe, feed, and educate children and families in Guatemala. It now cares for and educates 4,000 orphaned, abandoned, and poverty-stricken children, and nearly 9,000 widowed, abandoned, and single mothers and their dependents in many of our world’s poorest neighborhoods.

On Wednesday, November 18 from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. and Thursday, November 19 from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. there will be a booth set up in the student union where various handmade crafts will be sold. Crafts include beaded jewelry, handmade tote bags and purses, scarves, Christmas decorations, etc., all made from families in Guatemala.

Proceeds go to helping the project ship donated items to the families that need them so desperately, so why not help save lives while you do your Christmas shopping?

We will also be collecting donations: clothes, school supplies, every bit helps.
