Do You Want To Help A Little Girl Feel Beautiful?

Elisa contacted me about her mission trip to Uganda & Ethiopia. She will be visiting and serving in 4-5 very large orphanages and will be feeding almost 1500 children in one of the feeding programs. She would love to make the little girls feel like princesses by passing out hair accessories. This is an amazing cause but there's not much time! I am asking our fabulous readers for help. She is asking for new or gently used hair accessories to pass out to these girls. She will be collecting them until May 27th. Many girls do not have hair so she really needs some headbands. Read below for more information.

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!

  7. Thank you Beads, Braids & Beyond- from the bottom of my heart!!! In February, I took over 2,000 headbands to crown princesses in Ethiopia, living on the trash dump in Korah. It was the most life-changing opportunity to give bows & headbands wrapped in love from bloggers all over the world!

    We are now collecting headbands for our Visiting Orphans trip to Uganda in June and my team member, Elisa Hyman is starting a frenzy for bows!!!! Here is the blog post if you want to learn more-
