Like many mothers in the Philippines, Retchel was a married “single” mother, because her husband needed to travel extensively to provide for their family’s basic needs. Through her income, her family hopes to save enough money, so her husband won’t have to leave them anymore. When you give these Capiz Snowflake Ornaments as gifts this holiday season, you are helping families in the Philippines stay together.
