A Sweetheart of a Gift


Buy your sweetheart a gift that keeps giving… make their Valentine’s Day sweet with a lovely picture book about Ethiopia!


Introducing Ethiopia ABCs – a gorgeous photobook for children.
Each page teaches kids and parents about rural Ethiopian life and culture, while learning their ABCs.

All the pictures were taken between Addis Ababa and Nakemte, which was a bumpy day-long drive west of the capital.

All of the net proceeds (approx. $10 for every book) will be donated by author/photographer Arnica to Vulnerable Children Society.

So far, this book has fundraised $448 for the work of the society!

Please click on the links above to preview the book and buy a copy or a few! Thanks for your support of Vulnerable Children Society!

Add a “Gift of Love” badge to your blog! Help us fundraise for Vulnerable Children!

Holiday gifts are a very important source of revenue for Vulnerable Children Society. Did you know, $100 can feed 10 children injera (the staple bread in Ethiopia) for a month? What Canadians spent on eating lunch out for a week can provide the basic food and shelter necessities for a deserving child for a month. Every bit counts! Plus, people really appreciate a gift that they can connect with and know changes a child’s life.

You can help us fundraise for Vulnerable Children Society by putting a badge promoting our holiday gift giving on your website or blog.
We appreciate it so much! Here are the simple instructions:

  1. Download a holiday gift or sponsorship badge (slightly larger than shown):
  2. IMPORTANT: Link the badge to : https://vulnerablechildren.ca/donate/holiday-gifts

ALTERNATIVELY, you can paste this html code into a widget or onto a page in the html area:
