Be (B)eautiful: I just purchased bracelets from www.beadforlife.org. This organization helps women in Uganda overcome poverty by providing them with the opportunity to sell their handmade beaded jewelry into the U.S. The stories of the beaders really inspired me. They have faced such difficult circumstances and still manage to prosper and smile. They are full of hope even when it seems like things wont get any better. The jewelry isn’t costly and its beautifully hand made from Africa. That is pretty awesome if you ask me. Be a (B)eautiful person and help someone else who most likely needs it way more than you do.
Be (A)uthentic: Be original in the handmade jewelery I mentioned above. Not only will you be wearing a beautiful unique piece, but whenever someone asks you: “hey, where did you get that?’- you now have an amazing conversation starter.
Be (D)etermined: Make a difference. If you want to do more than just purchase some jewelry on your own, why not host a BeadParty?! This is an awesome way to bring your friends/family together for a great cause. It doesn’t cost you anything to host one. Everything is sent to you. Make a night of it with snacks, drinks and good people coming together for a good cause. I am already planning mine!
