Helping Hands

Look at this adorable little hand,
I love the dimples.
and the loving heart...
that goes with these
tiny hands.


Many of you know Libbie from her blog,
And if you know Libbie,
you know her cutie pie daughter,
Annie.

She has the most precious heart.
She loves people and Jesus,
and when she heard about the earthquake in Haiti,
she wanted to go and help,
or at the very least
send all their money.





Libbie, being a wonderful and wise mommy,
wanted to use this opportunity to help,
and at the same time allow her daughter
an expression of brotherly love and giving.

So Annie made beaded bracelets,
to sell to raise funds for the people of Haiti.

bracelets...

bracelets,

and more...

bracelets.


                                           

She has sold them door to door...



At church, and through many other people and businesses.
All so she could help the people of Haiti.



Here are my two bracelets that I purchased,

made just for me,

with love,

from Annie.

In a time when there are so many
bad things going on in the world,
I wanted to share what is "good",

a child whose heart
and hands
work together.

blessings,
Debra

  12. Debra, this has touched me to my very core. I went over and read Libbie's post and just sat there and cried at the goodness of this precious child. It's what every parent dreams of. I don't believe this will be the last we hear about this wonderful little girl and her loving heart.

  14. I did visit Libby and leave a message for Annie. She is such a cutie with a big heart and it is so wonderful to hear her story! I am so glad to see that you bought some of her bracelets. I certainly would have done the same but mail and Kuwait just don't go together unfortunately. Such a fabulous and inspiring story. Wishing you all the best, Tammy

  16. Such a simple and wonderful up-to-date version of the boy with the sack lunch that Jesus blessed, broke and multiplied! I can't wait to see how this story ends -- IF it ends!

    May God bless YOU for giving voice to it and this child for her compassion and diligence.

  19. This is such an uplifting post. It warms my heart and brings tears to my eyes. If only we could all remember to love like the precious little children do. Libby must be very proud of Sweet Little Annie. All it takes is one person, big or small to light a fire.

    Before I even started reading, I thought look at those sweet little dimples too.
    Thanks for such an uplifting post tonight.
    Love, Tracy :)
