Support African Famine Relief

A devastating famine is currently affecting nearly 27 million people in East Africa. This is one of the most under-reported humanitarian emergencies of modern times and the most life-threatening food crisis since World War II.

Our East Africa famine relief campaign with World Vision got a big boost. Thanks to this relief agency's generous grant funds, our donation will now have 7x the impact! That means the 5% SERRV is donating from the sale of all African products (through Sept 30) just became over 35% of the sale! Check out our beautiful African baskets, soapstone carvings and more; your purchase just went a lot further in fighting hunger and saving lives.

Here's how to help:
