Mother’s Day Product Feature: {PINK} Classic Paper Bead Necklace


If you want to give a gift that is a triple blessing, this necklace from Light Gives Heat is it! Not only does the gift recipient get a beautiful paper bead necklace, the women in Uganda who make the necklaces get continued employment and a $4.00 donation is made from the sale of every {PINK} Classic Necklace to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Very versatile 48″ recycled paper bead necklace- to wear long, doubled, or tripled! Each necklace is multi-colored and has it’s own unique assortment of flavors. The paper beads are lacquered so that they have a beautiful smoothness and shine. Each necklace has a single {PINK} ‘Hope’ bead and is packaged in a special edition gift box with a photo and story about one of the women from the cooperative.

The Cherry Blossom Mother’s Day card in the photo is from Sanctuary Spring, a line of beautiful, fair trade greeting cards handcrafted by women who have escaped prostitution in the Philippines. These women were originally forced into prostitution by others or because they had no other means of providing for their families. Now, they are participating in restoration services provided by local charities in order to forge a new beginning for their lives. With limited job options in the Philippines, Sanctuary Spring is a critical lifeline that provides safe, dignifying, and empowering work.
