The Healing Eyes of Mercy

As a spiritual safari guide, Karen realizes the importance of not only directing others towards the light of God's love, but also reflecting this love to those in need! In response, she has formed a non-for-profit organization entitled, The Healing Eyes of Mercy​, in which all business proceeds are donated to one of three charitable causes near and dear to her heart, including the people of Rwanda, Parishioners of St. Benoit Catholic Parish in Haiti, and Christians in the Holy Land. Please see the information below for more details. As a visitor to this website, you may choose from one of these groups for contribution of your purchase proceeds and additional donations. Be sure to make your charitable outreach selection known during the final check out process. Thank you for your support and for decreasing the weight of the cross experienced by others!
