TLC - The Love of Christ Children's Home... because every baby deserves a family

When Romy Antrobus contacted us with a request to discount our photo calendars which they want to sell to raise funds for TLC, we didn't think twice to donate the calendars. We consider it a privilege to help in this little way.

Thea Jarvis and her family are truly heavenly creatures walking and working amongst us. I was touched very deeply when reading Thea and Pippa's blogs. Captured in every single word are traces of a love and sincerity which very few people in this world possess.

My own words do not come close enough to describing the work these lovely people do with our children, so I've borrowed their own words in order to get the message across.

"Each person in our family was meant to be there, and each one is loved. Whether born or adopted into the family, each person is beautifully unique and treasured." more

The Jarvis family cares for babies affected by HIV, abandoned or neglected.  "In a country ravaged by HIV-AIDS it is sadly not only those who are tragically infected who have their lives disrupted, but also those of their families, often innocent babies." more

Some children are legally adopted by the Jarvis family.  "In the past there have been those little ones for whom we have not been able to find a family. When a baby arrives at TLC we are committed to them, from the time they are infants and as they grow up." more

They change lives.  "Much of the work at TLC is done by young people from around the world. Many of these youths have never been away from home for an extended period of time. During the time that they provide us with an invaluable service in time and effort, TLC provides a safe environment in which they can stretch their wings and experience a little of the real world." more

They do not survive on charity alone.  "At TLC there are a lot of hungry little mouths to feed. Out of this need, the Sustainable Farming Project was born, aiming to put some food on the table and eventually generate some income." more

There is so much to be said about this group of people investing their time, energy and unconditional love into these tiny souls.  I just couldn't put it all in one blog entry.  Visit their website, sign up for the newsletter and find out how you can support them - either by volunteering or committing yourself to one of their projects or simply by making a donation.

To purchase a calendar in support of TLC, please contact Romy Antrobus at  ALL proceeds from these sales are donated to The Love of Christ Children's Home.

10 Unique Photobook Ideas

Stuck for photobook inspiration? Try one of these creative, themed books.

A photobook is the perfect way to print and display your memories, so you and your family can look back on them (without having to huddle around a computer). They also make for special gifts! But, you don’t just want to slap all your pics together in one book. Instead, make themed photobooks you can collect over time.

We’ve compiled a list of unique photobook ideas that will inspire your next photobook project – whether you’re creating a wedding album, holiday album, or summer album!

Seasonal Books Create a photobook after each season with all the pics from the last three months. Summer, autumn, winter and spring books will give them a clear theme – and help ensure a colour pallet throughout the pics.

Creative Ideas for a Post-Holiday Photobook

Here’s how to turn your holiday photos into a creative, must-keep photobook.

Returning home after a holiday can leave you with the post-travel blues. As you wash your bikini, shake the sand out of your sneakers, and try to revive the house plants you haven’t watered for two weeks, you begin to long for the lazy days of a vacation.

But, just because you’re home, doesn’t mean the holiday fun is over. Gather your memories up and create a photobook of your trip. Putting it together is a fun way to keep the holiday feeling alive, plus you can look back on it, to get yourself ready for next December (or April. We’re coming for you, public holidays).

Create a #Hashtag If you went on holiday with a few friends or family members, make sure that everyone uploads their pics to Instagram using a unique hashtag you create, like #SmithFamilyHoliday2017. Check it doesn’t exist already! That way, when you create the photobook, you can search for the hashtag, and find every photo that was taken. An ea…
