Bambu Earth travels to Africa!

A few weeks ago I was contacted by a friend who was headed to Africa for a missions trip. Her team leader was looking for donations so they could throw a spa party for the CHE leaders. These amazing women who donate their time to the community were treated to manis, facials and relaxation. What an amazing way to thank them and show them the love of Jesus!

Stopping to Eat the Sand.

Everyday I wake up next to this little bundle of joy is a blessing. I can't describe the feeling I get when I look at her and watch her learn, grow and discover right before my eyes. Trust me, I've tried to describe it to my husband and it only mildly gives it justice. It's magical how the simple things like a trip to the park can be so filled with love, life and laughter. It gives me a deeper understanding of God's vast love.

Our Visit to the Anaheim Packing House

This weekend we visited the Anaheim Packing House which is a collection of artisan restaurants and gourmet food selections. What a gem. I'll let the photos do the talking. 

Crowdfunding 101 - What is crowdfunding and how does it work?

You've heard a bit of buzz around crowdfunding. Maybe you've heard about Kickstarter or Indiegogo. Maybe someone has asked you to back their project. But you ask yourself what exactly is it? Is it charity? Is it some kind of donation? Do I get something in return? 

Maybe you've never heard those terms and crowdfunding is brand spankin new to you. In either case, I've put together an infographic that should help you out. Here I break it down and make it really simple for you to get the concept of crowdfunding, it's definition and how it helps businesses and you. 

In a nutshell, crowdfunding is the practice of funding a project or venture by raising many small amounts of money from a large number of people. A few people give a little money to raise a lot of money and reach a common goal. That goal can be anything from making a movie, to opening a store, to manufacturing an invention! The crowdfunding model I outline in the graphic below explains a rewards based model also. Sites like Kickstarter allow the project creator to offer rewards levels backers can choose from. This means if you back a project, you also get some cool stuff in return. On top of that, you get to be a part of some new venture or project that you might have a passion for. 

In my graphic below, I've used our Kickstarter campaign to give you an example of how you and the project creator benefits.
