I can't believe that many Bolivians live below the poverty line 🙁
The bars look so good! And I love hearing about wonderful causes like this.
I've got plans to make these for Thanksgiving 😉 We support some missionary friends in Bolivia and they share stories like these all too often 🙁 I'm going to go share the video!
It really is heartbreaking. I love pumpkin and those bars look amazing.
That looks every bit of being scrumptious!
