The sisxth in a series of blogs of fun Christmas gift
ideas that give back: WorldCrafts. This season, why not make
your money count?
Both recycled and just plain fun, the Katogo Jewelry Set has been a long
time favorite of mine. It goes with anything, can be worn long, or
short (wrapped around a time or two), and even as a bracelet, if
you wrap it around several times. How does it give back? Widowed.
Destitute. HIV-positive. These words could be used to describe the
women of the Proverbs 31 artisan group in Uganda. But as they make
colorful, attractive beaded jewelry out of recycled paper—you’d
never guess—their hearts join together in song and their faces
light up with smiles of joy! Sales of their beautiful, handmade
items provide badly needed income to meet their families’ most
basic needs, such as food and rent. Today, words that best describe
these Proverbs 31 women would be hopeful, encouraged, full of
thanksgiving and praise! Make this season
merry and bright and give twice this year-to an
artisan who needs a hand up with
dignity, and to a friend or family member you would already be
purchasing a gift for. Gifts that Give Back: WorldCrafts *no compensation was given
for this post, I just love this ministry!
