Special note: Hope you can return on Friday morning or early afternoon when volunteers will be selling jewelry and other items for a cause that is near and dear to her heart, Bead for Life. This beautiful jewelry is handmade by the women the organization supports. Made from beads of rolled paper, all of Bead for Life’s items are fair trade and very reasonably priced. This will be a great opportunity to get gifts for others and yourself that have a big positive impact on the world. This organization empowers Ugandan women, teaching them the skills of entrepreneurship and craft. Connie has been long connected to this organization as a community partner.
