Isabella is 13 years old, and she makes these awesome creations out of beads! She has many comic images and figures that will be on display for Women’s Comic Month.  These little creations are cool, and they make perfect gifts.  But the best part is that 100% of her proceeds go to charity!  She donates all the money she earns to Feed My Starving Children.  It’s an organization that feeds malnourished children in various countries, throughout the developing world.
