I saw this incredibly inspiring story on the Today Show yesterday and wanted to share it with you. I am planning to host a party in the near future and think all of you should consider it, too! If you don't want to host a party, though, check out their store and order something online. What about blogging about this great organization, too? Get the word out!
BeadforLife's mission statement is: BeadforLife creates sustainable opportunities for women to lift their families out of extreme poverty by connecting people worldwide in a circle of exchange that enriches everyone.
The beads are made from using recycled paper and rolling them into beads and then covering with a sealent. The beads are then used to make earrings, necklaces and bracelets. You can watch a video HERE and I suggest you watch it. It is interesting and uplifting to see these women work and commune together while making decent wages.
What an incredible story about incredible women!
