POVERTY

































Poverty is a cry to take action to strike down poverty.  An individual must think, "What can I do?"  and  "Who can I help?"  There are so many ways one can make a difference.  I try to make my difference by being in-tune with God's universe.  Circumstances that happen to me during the days I live.  































I was at a second hand antique store. The owner said I am carrying a beautiful line of gem stone jewelry made by the women in Nepal. A 10% donation will apply  with every purchase of a jewelry piece. The donation goes to Nepal by a charity organization called Friends of Nepal. I bought a gorgeous rose amber brooch. Immediately, I went home and studied Nepal India.

"Mission"
Friends of Nepal provides a framework for our membership, predominantly Returned Peace Corps Volunteers, to stay connected to each other and to Nepal,while continuing to help in the development of Nepal in concret ways." Friends of Nepal (FoN)- FoN is an affiliate of the National Peace Corps Association.

I decided to have ebay works manage my donations.  Ebay will send $5.00 per product sold to your charity of choice. I specifically purchased a line of jewelry made by the women of Nepal to help them live and then donate the money to FoN. I have signed up to provide the money for safe drinking water. Water is essential to life, even to the unborn.

I have 19 jewelry listings to support Nepal. The craftsmanship is well done.
