Sarah is making her first donation to the children of China! She used proceeds from "Sarah Loves Ladybugs" and selected some clothes and accessories to send to her orphanage in Nanjing. She has 20 clothing items and 10 accessory items to send.
In China, clothing with English writing and bling is very "cool" so she's picked out some things that she's sure the kiddos will LOVE! And this time she's sending things for the older kiddos as many times donation of clothing are given for infants/toddlers.
She's already contacted the orphanage and they know the box is being sent. They'll be taking some photos of the kiddos getting the new items and will email them to Sarah .... she'll share the photos once they arrive.
THANKS so much to everyone for your support of "Sarah Loves Ladybugs"!! Sarah can't wait to save up for her next donation and looking into options for places to donate, so if you have a suggestion please let us know (any country, any orphanage suggestion appreciated).

Sarah Loves Ladybugs is an online store featuring jewelery and goodies such as pearls, jade, "cotton candy gems", handmade hair bows and more! 20% of profits are donated to orphan care and the remaining profits are set aside for Sarah's college fund.
Here is the welcome message as posted on the website.
Welcome! 欢迎 Ni Hao! 你好
I remember playing in the Chinese bamboo trees when I was young. And I helped push the young rice sprigs down into the watery earth during planting season. Now, I'm a USA high school student. "How did that happen?!" you may ask?
My name is Sarah and I was born in China. When I was 13-3/4 years old I was adopted and moved to the USA. I love the USA and I love China.
My mom and I started this small business called "Sarah Loves Ladybugs" as a way for me to learn about business, decision making, finances and more. And as a way to help myself, help others and to meet some great people!
In Chinese adoption, the ladybug symbolizes hope, dreams and future ... so from one ladybug to another ... THANK YOU ... 谢谢! I hope you'll tell your friends too!

20% of profits donated to help orphans around the world. Remaining profit set aside for Sarah's college education.
