About a week ago I received a lovely hand-carved olive wood cross in the mail from My Caring Cross. It came packaged in a burgundy velvet bag with an authenticity card. It also came with a cream bag and personalized card to show how Caring Crosses could be used as a wedding favor.

The olive wood cross is soft and smooth when held in your hand and comforting to the touch. Each cross is unique with its’ wood grain pattern. It brings a sense of calmness to our often busy and hectic lives. I will pass my cross onto my mother to share the story and the excellent craftsmanship to others. She has been going through some tough patches where this cross will be helpful.

{A Little Bit About the Product}  Caring Crosses are individually carved from a single unique piece of beautifully grained olive wood pruned from the olive trees around Bethlehem the birthplace of Jesus. Christians have been carving crosses like this for hundreds of years, originally for pilgrims and more recently tourists visiting the Holy Land. Each craftsman receives a fair price to support their family and Christian community. Caring Crosses are designed to fit comfortably into the palm of your hand as an aid to prayer or meditation. Ideal as your spiritual companion for easing children’s fears, comforting worries and stresses of adults and focusing the prayer of the sick and elderly.

{The Story of the Cross}  Issa is a Christian living on the outskirts of Bethlehem and has been carving crosses and religious items his whole life to support his wife and three children. Twenty years ago, Issa was met on a visit to Bethlehem and began importing his olive wood handicrafts. With the decline in Bethlehem tourism, Issa and other Christian Artisans are struggling. My Caring Cross aims to support them by providing a market for olive wood crosses direct to Christians in America.

{Holiday Specials}  The hand-carved olive wood cross would make a wonderful gift for the holidays and a perfect stocking stuffer for family and friends. My Caring Cross has two specials on their website until Christmas.  8 Caring Crosses delivered Priority Mail within the US for just $36 or $4.50 per cross …or 2 Caring Crosses delivered within the US for $12.

{Giveaway Details}  My Caring Cross would love to give one of my blog readers the chance to win a Caring Cross of their very own!  This contest is open to the US and will end on December 8, 2011. Thank you to My Caring Cross and Good Luck to my readers!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
