the Adoption Process Started
The “Adopt A Necklace” program is
a simple way to get money to the women beaders quickly
with a minimal investment. Yet, it is not asking for an outright contribution
as you now have a viable way to recoup your initial cost
through selling the necklaces.
To start the adoption process, just
Please include in your email your name and phone number, your
organization’s name and address, where to ship the
necklaces (if different than the organization’s
address). We will normally contact you via phone or email within 48
hours of receiving your email.
Payment can be made by check or by
credit card using PayPal. After your payment has been received, we will ship
you our “Adopt 100 Necklaces” kit. Besides the 100 necklaces, we will ship you
publicity materials, Outreach Uganda brochures, three
Ugandan food recipes, a letter size picture poster of a
woman beader, and an event feedback form.
to Spark Your Creativity
Possible event ideas include:
an African Bazaar
a necklace as part of the registration fee at your
organization’s next event/conference.
your PTA or school service club to sell the necklaces
as part of a service project which reaches out
globally, not just locally.
the necklaces after your church service where
“helping the poor” was the sermon topic.
the necklaces at a flea market or at your
organization’s huge community-wide garage sale.
your own “Bead Party” for a group of scrapbooking
friends and neighbors.
You can scrapbook for your families while
helping a beader’s family too across the globe.
