Sustainable Stewardship of Our Planet Earth

BeadParty to benefit BeadforLife- a fun event that benefits a great organization

Our group hosted a BeadParty and raised $413 for BeadforLife, an organization that helps impoverished African women. The kids helped sort the boxes of jewelry, set up for the party, make signs and collect the money. It didn't cost us anything to host it- even shipping both ways is free. Info can be found here:

Thanks so much for the extra information. I'm glad to hear that the party went well for you. It definitely sounds like a great time for a great cause!!

Have a great night.

Chris- I had it at my house. It was a great experience- it did take a bit of time to inventory all the items when we got them and before we sent them back. (They sent a ton of stuff to sell and you have to put up your credit card when you set up the party, but you're not charged anything as long as the numbers all match up in the end.) Since our group hosted it, I had each family bring a small snack to put out for guests and each child make one of the pricing signs. BeadforLife provides you with email invites, and I also set up an invite on Facebook to reach more people. The items are pretty inexpensive and it was going to a great cause so I didn't feel like I was burdening people by inviting them. Let me know if you have any other questions!

I've thought about hosting one of these parties (either with our Earth Scouts group or just with my family). How was your experience with it? Did you have it at a residence or at a public place? Thanks for any information you can provide.
