(HawaiiNewsNow) - In May 2012, Eden in Love won the National Retail Federation "This Is Retail" video contest. This inspired them to give back and partner with Global Hope Network International (GHNI) to adopt a poor village in Sri Lanka called Nallathanniya. Their team traveled to Sri Lanka to meet their village, hear their stories, and fell in love.
Check out their Dear Sri Lanka video HERE!
With the donation from Eden in Love and the help of GHNI, the village now has clean water flowing through their village, reaching the school, church and homes. Through GHNI, adopting a village costs $15,000 a year and village transformation takes 3-5 years. It is their hope that we can continue to adopt Nallathanniya to full transformation and see a healthier, happier, more self-sustaining village.
Now Eden in Love is having a sale to thank all their supporters, family and friends!
