Hey friends, here is The Eclectic Life’s 2nd giveaway! My friend Erin and several girls have sewn a set of lovely koozies to help fundraise money to send kids to Young Life camp and they graciously offered to give one away on the blog. For those of you who didn’t know, Jon and I were volunteers in Young Life for 7 years (throughout college and after) and Jon worked for Young Life the past three years before teaching. We love the ministry of Young Life and the people and we hope that you would consider purchasing a koozie if you wanted to support it. It would be an adorable holiday gift that you could pair nicely with a Starbucks gift card.

I asked Erin to share with you what inspired her to begin this project and to share what the ministry of Young Life is all about:


The koozie idea came as a way to provide a creative outlet for girls and raise money to go to camp to hear about the One that created them. I had no idea that it would bloom into the energizing project that it did. It has proved not only to help raise money for camp, but also to provide an incredible platform to talk about life with these girls while working on a fun project!

If you aren’t familiar with Young LIfe Camp, it is often referred to by kids as “the best week of my life” Kids get away from the pressures of everyday life, have fun with friends and their Young Life leaders, and hear the message of God’s love in terms they can understand. At Young Life’s camps, kids are treated to resort-quality facilities. Young Life camp involves high adventure, lots of fun, great food and excellent speakers who tell kids about the God that loves them unconditionally. Each year, more than 100,000 kids around the world spend a week or a weekend at Young Life camp, having an experience that many describe as the best of their lives.

Camp is only a small part of what Young Life is. For more information about Richardson Area Young LIfe visit www.richardsonareayounglife.org
