Practically every organization/school/religious group/club in the nation does Fund Raising for other worthy project funds. You can help your organizations and our artisans: let your group or school know about out Fund Raising Program.
The Recycled Paper Bead Projects are a way to teach students about the Fair Trade Movement and social justice issues for the poor. Teaching can be a motivation and reason for the mission of involving students and other adults in this Fund Raising.

A Letter of Introduction for the _______________Fund Raising Projects
Please allow me to introduce myself. I am______________________
I am now involved in a non-profit fund ; "A Fair World: Fair Trade Artisans House Fund" that sells Recycled Paper Jewelry for artisans in Uganda. The FT Artisan House Fund earns money to build the families their first home. The Fair Trade wage helps the artisans with providing better education, medical, and nutritious food for their children.
Many religious organizations, clubs, high school and college student organizations need mission-oriented projects to raise money. Look at our website (www.afairworld.org) and see the pictures.
A socially conscious group could help the Quality of Life of these people of poverty by supporting the Fair Trade Model with the Recycled Paper Bead jewelry. Educational and marketing material will be provided to any student group- a class, a club, an economics class, a social group-- about the Uganda people and what civil war did to perpetuate poverty. Do you know a group that would like to help someone and also like to benefit 10% or more from the project. Linda Edwards, Founder of A Fair World, will talk with you any time.
The jewelry is beautiful and each bead is a Work of Art. For an example of a product, a long string of beads sells for $20.
Holidays or events are a great time to start, for the beads last forever, after the flowers have withered (sample statement)
I hope to hear from you, either by phone (_______) or email.
