Beads for Life at Shawnee

Thursday, September 18, 2008 (Shawnee on Delaware, Pennsylvania) — The Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort is hosting a Bead for Life party on September 24th at 6:30 pm in the Delaware Room.

The party will feature beautiful beaded jewelry made of recycled paper by refugees from Northern Uganda's brutal war and HIV positive mothers. All of the women Bead for Life works with were living on less than a dollar a day before they began making beads.

Bead for Life partners with over 200 women in Uganda, providing opportunities to lift families out of poverty through the creation of beaded jewelry. The beads are handmade by rolling colorful recycled paper. The love and hope of the beader is present in each bead. Once strung together, they become beautiful necklaces and bracelets.

The money women earn from the sale of beads goes directly into feeding families, buying medicine, paying for school fees, and perhaps saving to start small businesses. All profits from the sale of the beads are invested in projects that fight extreme poverty including health education, housing, and sustainable livelihood. Bead for Life offers people opportunities and jobs, rather than handouts.

For more information or to make a reservation, please call: Sharon Fish at: 570.424.4050 x1416 or Erica Strip at: 570.424.4050 x1489. To learn more about Bead for Life please visit: beadforlife.org.

For more information or to schedule and interview with Shawnee's management; please contact Jeromy Wo, Public Relations Coordinator at: (570) 424-4050 ext. 1409 or visit ShawneeInn.com.
