Turn that Bead Buying Habit into a Giving Habit

For anyone who has dabbled in making jewelry, buying beads and other findings to create jewelry with can be quite addicting.   You can actually give something back with your bead purchases though by visiting Bead for Life.  According to Beadforlife:

BeadforLife eradicates extreme poverty by creating bridges of understanding between impoverished Africans and concerned world citizens. Ugandan women turn colorful recycled paper into beautiful beads, and people who care open their hearts, homes and communities to buy and sell the beads.

The beads thus become income, food, medicine, school fees — and hope. It is a small miracle that enriches us all.

All profits from BeadforLife are invested in community development projects that generate income and help people work their way out of poverty.

There’s a jewelry store where you can purchase loose beads, finished jewelry, note cards and even music all the while supporting the individual bead makers as well as community development projects.

Visit Beadforlife to help out.

  1. I discovered your blog cyberspace. I have been to Uganda many times in the last ten years. My recent visits have been to northern Uganda to visit my Acholi friends. I have created several videos to help my Ugandan friends that are helping the underprivileged and vulnerable in Uganda.
