Have Fun While Making a Difference in the World
You can help the Ugandan women increase their bead sales by hosting your own Bead Benefit Party to sell their wonderful paper bead and craft creations. You can also hold bead events at your workplace, school, church, or club. We can even ship bead packages to other states for events.
Bead Party Sales Make a Tremendous Difference The women beaders and their group receive $7 out of every $10 item sold. That’s better than a “fair trade” price. All U.S. labor is volunteer so the Ugandan women receive all profits from the necklace sales. One bead party often generates more income than one Ugandan woman could earn if she previously worked all year. It helps them to send their children to school, to feed their families every day, to buy needed medicines, and even to start their own businesses.
Simple and Easy to Host! Hosting a bead benefit party for the women is very easy and extremely rewarding. There is no cost to you to host a party. We suggest inviting 20 to 30 people you know to the party. This can be neighbors, co-workers, friends, people from church or school, or relatives. We will supply you with everything you need as a party hostess:
- Lots of colorful bead necklaces, bracelets and earrings
- Simple instruction form and sales summary form
- Sample invitation form which you can print from your computer
- Informational Uganda brochures
- Return envelope and return address label
- Pictures of the Pit-tek Women and inspiring quotes from them
