Jabulile's Story July 04 2008

Many of you have heard the story of Jabulile, but for those who haven't it's worth telling again on the 4th of July. Jabulile is one of the original Beaded Hope artists. Her talent is breathtaking as she uses only the tiniest beads to create her intricate designs. But for Jabulile freedom has a much different meaning than it does for you and me.

Beaded Angel Christmas Ornament by JabulileFreedom, to Jabulile, is the ability to provide food for her four children (the youngest two being HIV-positive).

Freedom, to Jabulile, is the ability to provide ARV medications (anti-retro virals) to her children, herself and her husband to battle the AIDS virus that has engulfed her family.

Freedom, to Jabulile, is the ability to have a job in which she can express her gratitude through the creation of a beautiful beaded Christmas angel that incoproates the design of the U.S. flag.

May you be blessed with every definition of freedom.
