Hillsong Girls – Adopted Jan 2013

Friends! I was so blessed to go home for Christmas.  I want to bless some of the girls I have met at Hillsong who haven’t seen their family for a while.  Just as a girl, on a student budget, and far from home there were a couple things that stood out to me.  One is that mascara is almost $20 per tube.  My family helped me out and sent me some good ol’ American mascara for me and some to share.  They were like gold handed out.

I was wondering if you would like to adopt a Hillsong girl that I have grown to know! The ones listed could use some lovin.  I know I cant reach the whole student population, but I’d like to reach these ones!  So if you can I have a little owl bag, a little smaller than a lunch bag, that would be awesome if you could fill with little things like mascara, floss, nail polish, a little note, anything! xoxo
