We also spent a day with the children at Kind Hearts. This is one of the care points that receives the funds raised when you buy one of my necklaces. On the ride to Kind Hearts we picked up some fruit and powdered milk to go with the treats and little gifts that were to be given to the kids there. As they opened the door of the school the kids came running out and showered us with hugs and kisses. We brought many beach balls to play with while we were there. We played the Ethiopian version of Duck, Duck, Goose. One of the best things about going there was getting to meet our sponsor child, Biruk. He was shy, but still played catch with us. It was great to spend some time with him.
We were surprised to find out that 42 more children had arrived at Kind Hearts and needed sponsor families. If you want to know more about how you can help out these amazing children, visit Karen Wistrom’s blog,
Family from Afar. I also hope to raise enough money for 42 new pairs of shoes!! $18 buys a good custom-made pair of shoes for one of these children. Order a bottle cap necklace and 100% of your purchase will be donated to Children’s HopeChest for the shoe fund.
Be sure to visit soon for new designs! Bottle cap necklaces would make great Christmas gifts!
