Beading For Love was a huge sucess!!

My amazing school raised $1400.00 for The Portable Playhouse Organization!! Our beading for love event was a huge sucess! Families had a great time and made some beautiful bracelets and key chains, and at the same time we and raised lots of $$$ for a great cause! Check out the video ( i am lori in the red : )  )....

  1. This is wonderful! Did you have the beads donated to you? (If so, by who? And how did you ask for them?) During your event, did each individual pay per necklace? Just interested in the logistics! Thanks!

  2. hi Kristina..thanks for your interst in the beading event! Portable Playhouse and it's Founder Maryann Corey brought the beads to our school the night of the event as well as all the premade strings with clasps (over 150). Maryann can get the beads wholesale. We sent home forms in our school a month prior to the event and asked students to prepay for bracelets and keychains. The cost was $5 per item.
    Maryann and her husband Richard stayed for the event. Prior to the event they taught some of the teachers that voluntereed their time for the cause how to close off bracelets and keychains. Are you thinking of maybe doing this in your school?? It was a great experience. Let me know if you need any other info!

  3. This sounds super interesting, but I'm in NC... I would love to do something similar but to support a more local charity... HMM... got some brainstorming to do!
