As I was walking through World Showcase in EPCOT yesterday, I stumbled upon a new kiosk at the African Outpost.
Disney has partnered with “BeadforLife”, http://www.beadforlife.org, to give new life to older Walt Disney World Resort Maps, books, and pamphlets while providing job opportunities for women in Uganda.
The Walt Disney World pamphlets and other outdated materials are sent to Uganda, where the women measure, cut, roll them into beads, and then seal them for extra protection. These beads are then sent back to Florida in the same container, to be strung into necklaces, bracelets, and earrings.
The BEST thing is that you can either purchase a piece of jewelry that has already been assembled or you can design your own there on the spot!!!
They are also really reasonable!!!
I can’t wait to design my own necklace!!!Follow us for more updates:
