Good Works of the Week


I'm always on the look-out for grassroots organizations that are helping to improve the world we all share. I came across a tiny little tidbit in a recent issue of Redbook about a tremendous group called Bead For Life which is turning the artistic skills of impoverished women in Uganda into saleable products, helping to improve their economic conditions. As someone involved in not-for-profit arts, I know a cool craft item when I see it, and I just love these beads!  My hat's off to co-founders Ginny Jordan and Torkin Wakefield for their efforts in getting this organization off the ground. Check out the products available or make a donation on their website http://www.beadforlife.org/.
