Science with a Mission Auction

This Saturday, April 4, 2009 there is an Live Auction for Science with a Mission. The Auctions are always a lot of fun. (It is at the Covenant Congregational Church of North Easton MA at 6:30 PM) If you live near, stop by. They are having some wonderful items to auction.

One of the items in the auction is the above necklace. I have always liked the Kazuri beads and like to support a Fair Trade Business. The beads are hand made by women in Kenya. They are payed a fair wage and are often the sole support of their family. They are members of the Fair Trade Federation. One of those win-win situations. I've always tried to quiz vendors about their sources and support (buy from) those that have good working conditions.

I feel the Fair Trade Federation members seem to be a fit with the philosophy of Science with a Mission.

This necklace is made with 3 Kazuri Beads, jet Swarovski crystals with Bali Silver spacers and silver plate curved tubes. It is 18 inches long, finished with a lobster claw clasp and has a 2 inch extender.

I hope it will raise lots of money to support Science with a Mission. Check out their web site too.
