Kind Hearts and Trees of Glory

On November 13, a team of 16 people will be traveling to Ethiopia from the United States with my bloggy friend, Mrs. Wistrom, and Children’s HopeChest. While they are there, they will be visiting and loving the kids at Kind Hearts and Trees of Glory care points. They have a lot of projects they want to complete and I thought it would be cool to help raise some funds with some new bottle cap necklace designs.

Becky Burk is an adoptive mama to a little boy from Ethiopia and sponsors a little girl at Kind Hearts and a little boy at Trees of Glory. She came up with the cute designs above just for this fundraiser. I think that these new designs are extremely spectacular (thanks Mrs. Burk).

100% of all purchases made now through November 13 will go to a special account that will be used for construction projects for classrooms at the care-points. By purchasing a bottle cap necklace from Little Goody 2-Shoes, you can help build a classroom in Ethiopia!! How COOL is that???!!!

I would love it if you would help spread the word.

Peace… Love… Do Good :)

PS. We’ve reached over 100 pairs of shoes!!!

UPDATE!!!  Thanks to everyone that has purchased a necklace, we will be able to donate OVER $1000 for the November mission trip!!!


  1. Samantha - YOU are amazing!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE these designs!! And I LOVE all the GOOD you are doing for these kids!! ~Karen Wistrom :)

  2. Samantha,
    Karen emailed about these necklaces and I'm so amazed at what you are doing! I'll post on my blog and talk it up among my friends--these necklaces are so cute and your willingness is spectacular :)

  3. Sami- Your cousin here (Catherine)!!! When my mom first told me about your blog, I was flabergasted! I think that it's an amazing thing that you're doing and I can't wait to buy some necklaces. I've decided to buy one for all of my friends birthdays.

    Your already a great older sister to Toby I bet that you'll be a really good one for the Ethiopian boy. I can't wait to meet my new cousin!!!

    Keep it up!

  4. HI there,
    Just wondering....I see you accept paypal, but do you accept credit cards on paypal? I was trying to order a few necklaces today but couldn't seem to pay with my credit card. :)
    Thanks for the help!

  5. Amy,

    Thanks for the comment. I would love to make some necklaces for you! Once you are ready to check out, it will say "Choose a way to pay." Click on "Create a PayPal Account and pay with your debit or credit card." If that doesn't work for you, you can send me an e-mail with the "Contact Me" button at the bottom of the page.

    Thanks - Sami

  6. I have a blog that devotes a lot of its space to topics related to Africa, missions, and orphans. I'd love to feature you and your bottle cap necklaces at my blog. If you are interested, let me know. I'd love for you to write an explanation of who you are, how you got interested in supporting ministries in Africa, and what you make. Plus anything else you'd like to share. Also, include info on how folks can buy your creations. I'll link back to you, of course, and include some photos. Hopefully, you'll get some more sales!

    Hope to hear from you soon!
