Ethiopia Adoptive Family sells T-Shirts to Help African Orphans

Buy a cool shirt, bring aid to Ethiopian orphans. The big heart over Ethiopia on the
t-shirt design is symbolic of the desire of Cindy Rohwedder, Baobab Haus Co-Founder and CEO, to help orphans from the country in which she adopted her son. 

Proceeds from purchases of “Hope Ethiopia” t-shirts will be contributed toward Children’s Hope International Foundation Ethiopia projects by, Rohwedder’s new online store featuring African centered products.

“We brought home our son from Ethiopia in May of 2010, and have had a hard time finding things that he would actually want, like toys, and books,” Rohwedder said. “So we started our shop that focuses on African adoption gifts and other African items.”

The $20 “Hope Ethiopia” t-shirt comes in men’s and youth sizes as well as a women’s V-neck design.

Ethiopia Adoptive Families visit Children's Hope

 With the running feet and happy laughter, the Children’s Hope building came alive this morning. Three couples, who had adopted from Ethiopia in 2010, came to Children’s Hope to show the Ethiopia adoption team their growing children. Although from three different states, Oklahoma, Missouri and Illinois, the families have remained close because of their shared adoption experience.
