BENEFITING: IMAGE OF CHANGE

Lovetta Conto

THE STORY:

My name is Lovetta. I'm 17 years old. I live in Liberia, West Africa. I grew up in a refugee camp and now have the incredible opportunity to move into Strongheart House, an amazing place where I and other young people like me can learn, grow and heal. But we need to raise money quickly. To help raise the money, I designed necklaces made with ACTUAL BULLETS from the Liberian civil war, collected from the ground in my home country in West Africa.

Each necklace has a leaf - made from a melted bullet casing - with the word LIFE on it. It hangs beside the actual original bullet shell bottom that is wrapped in gold-fill wire. My necklaces have been featured in O, Elle, Glamour, & Teen Vogue. Please spread the word to all of your friends. Let them know they can make a huge difference and get an amazing piece of jewelry that tells a very personal & I hope - powerful story.

HOW TO GET YOUR NECKLACE:
Make a payment of at least $95 and I'll send you the leaf & bullet bead on an eco-suede necklace. (The length is adjustable.) With your shipped product, I will also send a tax receipt for the portion of your payment that is a donation.

Make a payment of at least $135 and I'll send you the leaf & bullet bead on a 24" sterling silver ball-bead chain. With your shipped product, I will also send a tax receipt for the portion of your payment that is a donation.

To make your payment use the big orange button labeled “donate” in the upper right. We’ll email you to get your shipping address so we can send you your necklace. Thank you so much for your support.

If I reach my goal, it will cover the budget for our house for the rest of the year. That will pay for food, clothes, books, generator fuel, the staff that teaches & takes care of us, etc. To learn more about my story and my necklaces, visit www.akawelle.com.
