DEVIN HIBBARD, Co-founder, BeadforLife. BeadforLife eradicates extreme poverty by creating bridges of understanding between impoverished hard working Africans and North Americans who want to create a world that works for all. Through the production of beautiful handmade jewelry made of paper beads, Ugandan women generate income to lift their families out of poverty. Their members are women with HIV/AIDS and refugees from the war in Northern Uganda. They have recently released a CD of the music they sing. You heard selections from that CD last week on the show and will hear more this week.
We will have a BeadforLife Table at the WMNF Book Music and Holiday Bazaar at the Cuban Club next Saturday, December 2nd. See these beautiful life-giving beads. Join us to support WMNF and these courageous women! www.beadforlife.org www.wmnf.org.
