Friendship bracelet Project

Via Tumblr

Friendship bracelets. I remember making them when I was in year 8 and getting some from my friends. I  have some of them still packed away in boxes. 

Well, I first read about Nicole's Friendship Bracelet Project via her twitter then went to her blog to check out the post. This project is to make some friendship bracelets and they will be sent away to orphans in Uganda. She was inspired by her friend who went over there to help out with some orphans. This simple item can brighten up their lives and to own something that is theirs and made with love :) 

I've decided to become involved by making some friendship bracelets which will be sent off to Nicole who will give them to her friend who will send them to Uganda. 

I've bought my string and I hope to get started on this very soon!

Nicole's lovely post really made me think about going to Cambodia next year to help out in my church's SHE rescue home. I've had a desire to help out for awhile now and I think I just have to do it! 

Lately, I've been so inspired by those who give so much of their time and so selfless, with a real heart for other people. And I think it's time I finally went on one of those missions trips. Any encouragement would be most welcome :)

I do urge you to check out Nicole's post and contact her if you want to get involved with this lovely project. 

P.S. If you are a member of Project You, we have something quite exciting in the works! And there is still 20% off in the shop with the coupon code: HAPPYSEASON

I remember making those when I was younger and I still have all the little yarns in order by color in my kit from back then! I shall go and check out her post now!

I read that post and am hoping to get started on some friendship bracelets very soon (maybe as soon as I'm done writing my Christmas cards!). I think it's great that you're thinking of doing that mission trip! I would love nothing more than to go volunteer teach, or work in an orphanage, or help build a school, or anything like that in some underdeveloped country. I hope one day that I'm in the place where I could take off time from work to do that.

It's so nice of you to be making those bracelets. Maybe I should join in too :)

Missions trip would be a great way to bless others. And along the way, you'll be blessed too! :)

This is such a brilliant idea, I think I will try and take part =) All my string is at home though and I won't be back for a while, but it's such a lovely thing to do =D

Nicki said...

Oh my gosh! This is such a wonderful idea. I'm going to go check out Nicole's page after this.

Did you know that once you're given a friendship bracelet, you're supposed to wear it until it falls off... Then, once it falls off, you're supposed to make a wish!
