Bracelets for Pearl


SKU: N/A Category: Tags: ,


On the 3rd of August 2020, Hlengiwe “Pearl” Msimango was shot and killed in Johannesburg.

Pearl leaves behind two beautiful children; a three-year-old little girl who witnessed her mother’s death, and an 8-month-old little boy who was crazy about his beautiful mommy. Pearl’s daughter is currently in counselling to address the horrific incident she endured. Pearl’s two children are currently being cared for by a relative.

One of Pearl’s dear friends, KT, started the m.y.g.i.r.l.p.e.a.r.l initiative on Instagram to raise funds for Pearl’s children through the sale of beautiful, personalised bracelets. Each bracelet is lovingly handmade by KT with a pearl in remembrance of her beauty and shine.

As a friend of KT’s, I have set up this BackaBuddy fundraiser to allow the public to donate funds without KT having to make a bracelet in return for their donation.

I am sure there are many out there, like me, who would like to donate to this cause in an attempt to positively impact the lives of these two precious children who have already dealt with so much.

This will be an ongoing initiative as Pearl’s kids will require support until they are legal adults. KT is managing these funds to ensure schooling, books, school supplies, clothing, food etc have been taken care of.

KT’s dream is to see Pearl’s children finish university and lead happy, independent, successful lives, which is what Pearl would’ve wanted.

She was a vibrant soul who brought joy to everyone she encountered. Please support our plight to change the trajectory of these children’s lives, and to keep Pearl’s memory alive.
