Beads for Sale

I'm thrilled to announce that Heart for Congo is being "sponsored" by Outreach Uganda this month! When you shop, purchase, & write Heart for Congo in the comments section during check-out they are giving us 40% of proceeds towards feeding our orphanage in DRC for a year! This organization has been fantastic to work with (three cheers for Katie) & I'm thrilled they're extending this opportunity to us! Just a reminder, Heart for Congo's goal is to raise $12,000 by OCT 31st to feed our soon-to-be-sons' orphanage (in Eastern DRCongo) FOR A YEAR! We only have 4 weeks to raise $4,000 but I know we can do it! 
 Here's what you can do:
  1. Go to  Outreach Uganda HERE 
  2. SHOP (all times are fair trade)...birthday gifts;  teacher gifts; Christmas gifts for your sisters, moms, daughters, neighbors, friends, coaches, postal workers;  unexpected gifts to simply bless someone you know & tell them how much you appreciate them. These products are stunning & high quality (I have a necklace, earrings, scarf, & bracelet).
  3. Write HEART FOR CONGO in the COMMENTS section during check-out & they will give Heart for Congo 40% of all sales UNTIL OCT 31!. 
  4.  SHARE SCREAM this info with at your friends & encourage them to shop & write HEART FOR CONGO in comments!

This is a win-win guys! Your purchase will bless someone you care about, support a Ugandan woman AND help feed an orphanage in DR Congo.

Below is an excerpt from Outreach Uganda & how your purchase empowers the crafters:

Outreach Uganda is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization headquartered in Colorado and dedicated to helping empower Ugandans rise out of poverty. To do this we work with village groups in Uganda to bring hope and improve lives, especially in the areas of education, women’s empowerment, and self-sufficiency through job creation.
What is Fair Trade? Fair trade assures more than just fair wages, it addresses:
  1. Fair wages
  2. Protection of children’s rights
  3. Women’s rights
  4. Environmental rights
  5. Indigenous rights
