I might be tired, but I won't go down that easy...that's right I'm back! Tonight is day 11 of a 14 day series of blogging about Fair Trade. As we count down to World Fair Trade Day on May 14th, the excitement is building around the country as groups, organizations and individuals prepare to share with others what Fair Trade is all about.
Tonight I bring to you another great Fair Trade Organization called Beads For Life.
I designed a bracelet a couple of years ago, that I named "Kaleidescope of Life". The entire bracelet was made using all Fair Trade components with the exception of the spacer beads. I made 12 bracelets and donated 50% of the proceeds back to Bead for Life. They are beautiful in color and you can wear it with anything. Each bracelet came with a pamphlet that told the story behind Beads for Life, so that the owner could share the story. Of the many things I've sold, these bracelets went like hotcakes..literally!
website to find out more about what this great group is doing. Join the Bead Circle and get updates through their newsletter and emails, meet the beaders through their videos , make a donation or host your own Bead for Life Party, and share the story..they'll tell you how to do it, step by step!
I absolutely love what Beads for Life is doing. They truly speak the message of empowerment through their project.
Thanks again for dropping by. After you've had the opportunity to visit the Beads for Life website, I would love to know what you think about the project. If you're already familiar with Beads for life, please share your story and how you work with this group of extraodinary women.
