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!
