Celebrities… are lucky. Not just because they get to meet other celebrities, travel to amazing destinations, and attend fancy events- but because they get to take home free stuff from EVERYTHING! Swag bags of all the newest, coolest, fanciest, prettiest, most amazing new and popular things out there today- and they get it all for free, and usually BEFORE you can buy it. Gah!
The Emmy’s are next Sunday, and one of you are going to get to take some swag home just like the celebs! Well, not really take it home… you’ll have it delivered- but hey, at least you don’t have to dress up!
This year, one of the things celebs will be taking home with them is a “Made in Uganda” box from Akonye Kena!
Since this is BRAND NEW, let me tell you a little bit about it!
Made In Uganda represents Akonye Kena’s return to its roots and focus on self-sufficiency in Uganda. Dedicated to showcasing the product of self-sufficiency projects, small businesses and artisans in Uganda. Made In Uganda will make its debut at the SRE Emmy Gift Lounge on Saturday September 14, 2013.
Meaning “I will help myself” in Acholi, a tribal language in northern Uganda, Akonye Kena was founded in 2009 as a result of founder Richard Kennair’s 10 years experience volunteering with youth-oriented charities in Uganda. Using his 20+ years experience in both the non-profit and retail sectors, it represents a focus of his skills to benefit those most in need. With a strong belief that traditional charity models have effectively trapped individuals, groups – and even countries – in the spiral of dependency, Akonye Kena focuses on accountability and striving for excellence. This focus has resulted in Akonye Kena being a ‘brand of choice’ for their hand-crafted goods.
The “Made in Uganda” box contains:
Antique coin pendant necklace
Recycled tire wrist band
Not only will you score like a celeb (wait… that sounds wrong. You know what I mean!) but you will be supporting a great company!
Enter to win below by using the Rafflecopter widget! Entry period begins at 12:30pm EST on 9/10 and ends Monday 9/16 at 12:30pm EST.

I've never had a near death experience, but I DID find 2 spiders in my house this morning, and that's pretty much the same thing.
If you like to be constantly criticized over your peanut butter to jelly ratio on sandwiches, being a parent is definitely for you.
