A few months ago, we put out the call for community members to make friendship bracelets we could take to school children in Africa. The response we received to this call to serve was astounding! Children, youth and adult groups alike responded with eagerness to gather to make friendship bracelets. We have currently collected around 1400 bracelets, necessitating a change in our original goal from 1000 to 2000! We are so grateful for all the participation we have received. Today we want to highlight Ellie and Abbey: two girls from Cottonwood Heights in Salt Lake City, Utah that have dedicated countless hours to making friendship bracelets for the children of Africa.
