I was lucky enough to be able to work with Bead for Life. Honestly, as soon as I read about their company, I knew I wanted to work with them. Bead for Life works to end poverty and help families in Africa. "Bead for Life is a Colorado 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization that works to eradicate extreme poverty by creating bridges of understanding between impoverished Africans and concerned world citizens. Ugandan women turn colorful recycled paper into beautiful beads. Women in Northern Uganda gather shea nuts and press them into shea butter for cosmetics and soaps. And people who care open their hearts, homes and communities to buy and sell both products."
Now why wouldn't anyone want to help this company? Have you seen the pins lately on Pinterest? Children under 5 are dying because of the drought, and that's only in the last 2 days. They children look sickly, and I couldn't imagine seeing my soon like that. So let's do something small to help. Bead for Life is having a Safari party. You can register here from now until September 31st to hold a Bead Party. By doing so, you are helping them reach their goal of $155,00 to train their current member in Uganda for a year! By holding a party and helping out, you are also register to a trip to safari trip in Africa.
So here is the pretty bracelet that I received to review. I actually got the green one, and I love it! I love it because it's pretty, but more so because I know the story behind it. I know that a mom just like me, who is trying to feed her babies made this bracelet. I've wore the bracelet plenty of times, and it's still held up just like day one. The bracelet is a pretty bright green like grass, and just makes me happy. They also sell things other than bracelets.
I do hope you will all stop by their site, and help out if you can. It's really for a great cause.
