A BIG Thank You!

For the past month, I have been collecting hair goodies for all the sweet girls in Uganda and Ethiopia.  The response has been amazing!  I have collected approximately 770 headbands (that includes regular head bands and headbands with flowers/bows, 1oo ballies, 880 cloth elastics, 90 decorative elastics, 600 snaps, 27 combs, 5 quick beaders, 4000 rubber bands, 6 packages of sidewinders and THOUSANDS OF BARRETTES and BEADS!

I had to remove all the packaging and sort all like items to make packing everything much easier.

This is what YOU helped bring in!

I leave on Tuesday and will be back in mid-June.  I can't wait to share the pictures and videos of girls receiving your gifts.  Thanks so much, I could not have done it without you!

A special Thank You to Chocolate Hair Vanilla Care, Beads Braids and Beyond, and many others who helped me get the word out!  And to Twist Braid Snap for offering free shipping and matching all donations!  CHECK THESE SITES OUT…THEY ARE A MUST!

African Princesses

Do you want to be part of something big?  Do you want to help a little girl feel beautiful?  I am traveling to Uganda and Ethiopia with a team of 30 missionaries on May 31.  We are going through an organization called Visiting Orphans.  We will be working with several ministries and hundred of girls.

Here is where we will be:

I am collecting all kinds of hair goodies for these precious girls in Africa.  All the girls I will be loving on are orphans. Some have hair and some don't.  My dream is to shower these girls with hair accessories to make them feel beautiful!  Please help me by sending new or gently used hair accessories.  I will be collecting them until May 27.  

Some things that would be appreciated are:
Rat Tail combs
Sectioning Clips
Lots of Headbands (as many girls do not have any hair)

Here is a video of the last group that brought beauty to some precious girls!
