My Caring Cross ~ Review and Giveaway~ Ended
The Olivewood Cross~
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. The Caring Cross is 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.
Our Mission is to help Christians in Bethlehem~
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 my mother met Issa 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. Our aim is to support them by providing a market for olive wood crosses direct to Christians in America.

I received a beautiful Caring Cross with a velveteen gift bag. The cross is wonderfully made! The CaringCross is made from genuine olive wood in Bethlehem, the Holy Land. Designed specifically to fit within the contours of your hand they are perfect to hold during prayer or meditation.
