I just did henna (mehndi) at a party for Bead for Life. This fantastic organization teaches African women in Uganda to make beautiful beads from recycled paper. They in turn sell them over here to provide income, food, medicine, and pay school fees.
I thought this non-profit would be perfect if people are looking for that special bead for a Mother Blessing or Blessingway. Not only are they beautiful, but give back by empowering the women who make them and creating opportunities for their communities in Uganda.
