Oh Happy Day!!!!

Click on picture for BIGGER smiles :)

Earlier this week, Karen Wistrom sent me these pictures along with the good news that all 99 kids at Kind Hearts received their new shoes!  Woo!! Hoo!!  She wrote a very sweet blog post about how important this is to these kids.  You can read about it here.  Again, thank you soooo much to EVERYBODY who purchased a necklace and shared my blog!

Today, I got yet another amazing surprise!!!
  My Mimi's cousin Steve, and his wife Lola, sent an extremely gracious donation to Little Goody 2-Shoes. 
Thank you Steve and Lola! 

I am delighted to say that together we have raised enough money to buy awesome new shoes for 93 of the kids at the Kombolcha care point in Ethiopia!  There are still 94 kids at this care point that I would love to  bless with new shoes.  $18 will buy a good sturdy pair of shoes.  As always, 100% of your bottle cap necklace purchase is donated to a special shoe fund at Children's HopeChest.

Peace...Love...Do Good!!!
311 Pairs of Shoes
