Give for a cause | Paper to Pearls

November 30, 2009

Give thanks for the people in your life and help those in need this holiday season with gifts that give back to communities in need. Paper to Pearls, an initiative of Voices for Global Change, is a beading initiative that brings the voices of Uganadan women’s struggles and hopes to the forefront of fashion. The colorful paper bead jewelry is handmade by women in the internal refugee camps of Northern Uganda who have been displaced by years of internal conflict by the Lord’s Resistance Army. Each bead is carefully rolled by hand and cut from strips of calendar paper and secured with glue, varnished and assembled into necklaces. The women’s dexterous workmanship is transformed into bold colors that can be worn singly or layered on.

Necklaces are less than $40 but a majority of them are about $16. Bracelets and earrings are a lot less. Proceeds from each of each purchase will help women in Uganda better their communities and their lives with consistent source of income from their craft. You get fabulous jewelry to gift your loved ones while empowering other women to become entrepreneurs.
