Enjoy a beautiful venue, catered dinner and Jessica’s stirring message. You’ll also have the chance to hear about the life-changing work of LSM, a local ministry caring for vulnerable children in the United States, Haiti and Ethiopia!
In 2010, Jessica Honegger needed to raise money to adopt her son from Rwanda. She and her husband, already parents to two children, shared a passion for global humanitarian work, which had taught them about sustainable solutions toward poverty alleviation. On one of their international trips to Uganda, Honegger held a child orphaned by the HIV crisis in her arms for the first time—and shortly after, she and her husband decided to pursue an international adoption.
On a subsequent trip to Uganda, the Honeggers met Jalia and Daniel Matovu, who created beautiful handmade goods but lacked a stable marketplace to ensure their livelihood. Honegger saw a solution to both of their problems: By selling the Matovus’ jewelry back in the US, she could raise funds to adopt her son, while simultaneously generating revenue for Jalia and Daniel. The overwhelming reaction to the Matovus’ story and products propelled Honegger to turn her at-home fundraiser into an actual company. Noonday’s vision is to build a flourishing world where people have jobs, women are empowered, children are cherished, and the world is made smaller through human connection. Visit her website here.
