Women to Women, Global and Local, a holiday sale of handmade, one of a kind bead jewelry made by Ugandan women.
The necklaces, earrings and bracelets, each unique, are priced at $5 to $30 with most in the $10-$20 range. All proceeds go to the non-profit Bead for Life organization to provide housing, health care and education for the beadmakers, many who have been homeless since the civil war in their country.
Northern Michigan has embraced this event, raising a total of nearly $30,000 over the past three years, which is enough to build houses for ten families.
The event is organized by the needlework group at the Unitarian Church in Traverse City.
