Recently I had the pleasure of attending a “Bead for Life” party at a friend’s house.  BeadForLife is a Foundation committed to social responsibility and sustainable international development.  Basically this is a group of North American women who have joined together to support families in need in Uganda.  While these women were traveling in Africa, they fell in love with some beautiful beaded jewelry.  It turns out that the women living in the area around Kampala actually make these beads themselves and turn them into colorful necklaces, bracelets, anklets and chokers.  A heartfelt bridge was formed between these two groups of women, and now the jewelry is available for sale and all of the proceeds go to help needy families in Uganda.  To see the jewelry store, and find out how you can host a beadwear party or bring beads to your event, go to: www.beadforlife.com. http://www.beadforlife.com
