Hi there and welcome to our blog! We are a group of girls that are friends. We make crocheted items and crafts to raise money for Project Hope Worldwide. Project Hope Worldwide is a non-profit organization based out of Owasso, OK, that has built an orphanage in Lira, Uganda.

We typically sell our items at annual sales such as the Kid's Day at the Owasso Farmer's Market, the Owasso Chili Festival, and the Haley Palmer Craft Fair; however, we take special orders, too.

In order for our profits to go directly to Project Hope Worldwide, we appreciate monetary donations and craft supplies including yarn, beads, dominoes, patterned scrapbook paper, decorative duck tape, Mod Podge, magnets, and crochet hooks. If you would like to make a donation, you can mail it to this address:

Girly Me Missions
P.O. Box 2157
Owasso, OK 74055

Thanks for looking and please check back often!

Conclusion To The Chili Cook-Off

We had the most wonderful time at the Owasso Harvest Festival and Chili Cook-Off today, including some AMAZING surprises!!! All in all it was a great success! We won first place for the best booth, which was $100 and first place for "Kid's People's Choice Chili", which was $400!!! All the money we won will go to help orphans in Uganda. Thanks to all who helped made this God-given day possible! Also, we made close to $200 with the crafts that we sold which will go to our sponsored girl, Nelly, with Project Hope Worldwide, and $130 for Arise and Shine Babies Home in Jinja, Uganda. Here are some pictures...

You'll have to excuse my mom yelling in this video. She was a little excited...

We are splitting our winnings between supporting Nelly, a five-year old orphan living at Calo Me Lare, the orphanage that Project Hope Worldwide built in Lira, Uganda...

and purchasing nine baby cribs for Arise and Shine Babies Home in Jinja, Uganda...

Thank you again to everyone for your support! And make plans now to visit our booth on Saturday, November 10th at the Owasso Craft Fair!

*** Update: On Nov. 19, 2012, nine baby cribs were delivered to Arise and Shine Babies Home. They were assembled on site, polyurethaned, then set up inside the home. Nine little ones get to sleep in new cribs and we are so excited to be a part of it!

*** Fast forward to March 7, 2013, a family with two sister's in Girly Me Missions adopted a little boy from Arise and Shine Babies Home in Uganda. Turns out, he slept in one of these cribs! What an amazing full circle of events.

You can read their adoption story here.
