I have a NEW project that I hope you’re all going to LOVE!
Everyone was so supportive of my bottle cap necklace project that we were able to buy HUNDREDS of pairs of shoes for children in Ethiopia!!! So, I have decided to move on to the HOTTEST NEW TREND in jewelry - HAND STAMPED NECKLACES! I think that they are very CUTE and super FUN, and I hope that you like the as much as I do!
Mrs. Wistrom, a care point coordinator for Children’s HopeChest, told me that there are 140 kids at Trees of Glory in the countryside of Ethiopia who are in need of new shoes. She sent me this picture from the mission trip they took to Trees of Glory this past November:
Elli Sweeney, a 13-year-old girl from North Dakota, also traveled with the group and sent me this picture of a pair of the shoes that one of the children was wearing:
It pains me to look at this picture. I want to look away. However, more than that I want this child to have a NEW PAIR OF SHOES ~ a sturdy pair of shoes that will protect these feet from the volcanic rock they walk on.
$18 will buy a new, sturdy pair of shoes. I would like to buy 140 pairs.
You can help me reach this goal by purchasing one of my necklaces.
I have two designs for you to choose from.
I have a starfish design (for all you starfish throwers). It is a 1-1/8” copper disc with an antique silver starfish charm. The disc can be personalized to say just about anything! Some examples are:
someone’s name – do good – be love – be strong – be nice – be sweet - best friends – grandma – teacher – sister – aunt – cutie pie – gymnast – dancer – mom/mommy – cheer – children’s names – it matters – love all – ethiopia…
BE CREATIVE ~ THE OPTIONS ARE ENDLESS!
The second design is a copper rectangle that measures 3/8” x 1-1/2” with an antique baby bee charm on it.
These pendants can be personalized to say the following:
“Bee” love – “Bee” happy – “Bee” good – “Bee” silly – “Bee” sweet
Both designs come with a 24” faceted ball chain necklace, tied up in a cute little package with a card letting the recipient know that a donation was made to help buy shoes for children in Ethiopia.
Each necklace sells for $11 + $1.50 S&H and can be ordered using PayPal in the column on the left.
As always, 100% of the money I make will go to a special shoe fund at Children’s HopeChest.
NOW FOR THE GIVEAWAY…The ONLY way this works is if you help me spread the word!!! I need you!! I would really love it if you could share a link to my blog on Facebook, your blog, maybe Pinterest, or through e-mail. Once you do, leave me a message in the comments section of this post. I will draw the name of one lucky winner each weekend in March who will be able to choose a free hand stamped necklace of their choice. That’s good for me and that’s good for you!
The Fine Print: Hand stamped necklaces are not for small children or Siamese cats. Giving a hand stamped necklace as a gift may cause the recipient to develop an overwhelming sense of admiration for you. While wearing your hand stamped necklace, people may stare in wonder of your high fashion sense. Hand stamped necklaces are not flammable but may cause you to feel like hot stuff. If you would like to purchase a necklace from Little Goody 2-Shoes but don’t have a PayPal account (or can’t figure out how to use it), send me an e-mail using the Contact Me button in the left hand column of this page.
