Junk Posse Africa Love Swirl Necklace & WINNER ANNOUNCED!!!

***  Winner ***  
Melissa @  Please send me your email  Junk Posse has been notified!  Congrats!!!

Into the Streets of Ethiopia and Tracy at Junk Posse have teamed up for another awesome giveaway!

The winner of this giveaway will receive the BRAND NEW "Love Swirls in Africa Necklace" inspired and created to aide orphans in Ethiopia.

This necklace is an amazing reminder of the orphans in Africa & how they are loved by so many. If you ever have the opportunity to work with or visit the orphans in Africa,
you will never be able to forget them. They will be imprinted on your heart forever.
I design each Africa pendant by hand and detail each with beautiful swirls on the front, I have added a sterling silver heart & swarovski crystal gem wrapped in sterling silver wire. On the back I hand stamp the word "Love"
over & over again. I have paired the pendant with a nice
20" sterling rolo chain & clasp.
Note: I can also add another color crystal instead of the clear.

Here is how you can earn a chance to own this lovely piece:

    1) Bought 10 cans of formula & personally giving them to YWAM ET

    3) Every week for 5 weeks I speak/announce at our church about this ministry and the need for formula
    4) spoke to my husbands employer about collecting formula and they are going to write an article in their monthly newspaper to promote giving to the ministry

  23. I haven't donated, but we are doing our own part to raise 50-100lbs of formula for our trip to Ethiopia later this year. Since I didn't donate today, I don't know if this counts, but I have put it on my blog and my facebook and I have grabbed your button.

    Thanks for doing this, our little girl will be directly benefiting from the formula delivered to YWAM.

    Thank you thank you thank you.
