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:
Barrettes
Knockers
Rubberbands
Rat Tail combs
Sectioning Clips
Beads
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!

You can mail these items to:

P.O. Box 280

Hello...saw a post on Beads, braids and beyond blog. I am currently trying to submit and online order for assorted hair accessories, but they need a contact phone number for delivery. I have the address you noted, but also need the number. Can you please update your post with a phone number? Thanks! God Bless you for this initiative.

Thanks

I have just ordered over 100 headbands and will be embellishing them to send your way. They'll arrive close to your 'need by' date- but will be there! This is just fabulous and I'm thankful I can help.
