It's been almost two months since we hosted this party for 31 Bits but I couldn't pass up the chance to share again about this fabulous company! I fell in love with their jewelry awhile back but didn't want to take the plunge into purchasing without being able to roll the beads between my palms and vouch firsthand for the quality of the craftsmanship.
I noticed while perusing their site that there was a number of ways to get involved, one of which was to host a house party. It was simple, request a box of goodies and have a party! Whatever you didn't sell/buy, ship back to the company at no cost to you.
As a perfect back-to-fall celebration, 20 friends joined me at my home to spread the love for 31 Bits and the work they are doing in Uganda to empower change by equipping women. One friend of a friend had just been to Uganda in the spring to help her dad open an orphanage there so she too was able to share about what she had seen and experienced there. Her voice added to the chorus of those at 31 Bits encouraging us that we could make a difference, bit by little bit.
I had so much fun staging the jewelry, using globes from garage sales, old tree branches, a chalkboard clock, and a sweet vintage David Livingstone book from 1905!
So I might have bought a fine chunk of the $1,200 sold but most were for others, the perfect gift to mail or save for upcoming birthdays or hostess gifts.
Right now the company is issuing a challenge for the hostess who sells the mostess! If there are any locals interested, I could be your partner in planning...!
