Closed: Giveaway: Women's Bean Project Entertaining Gift Basket

Since 1989 we have been helping women break the cycle of poverty and unemployment. We are a nonprofit organization that teaches job readiness and life skills for entry-level jobs through employment in our gourmet food production and handmade jewelry manufacturing businesses. Women come with the goal of transforming their lives and moving toward self sufficiency.

Our Mission: To change women's lives by providing stepping stones to self-sufficiency through social enterprise.

Our Vision: Women’s Bean Project strives to break the cycle of chronic unemployment and poverty by helping women discover their talents and develop skills by offering job readiness training opportunities. With this stepping stone toward success, the women will be able to support themselves and their families, and create stronger role models for future generations.

Women's Bean Project products are prepared and packaged with care by our Program Participants. With each purchase, you're helping women break the cycle of poverty and chronic unemployment.

I am truly impressed by the quality of the basket I received! But the basket is only second best to the story behind the products. If only there were more opportunities such as this for people who have overcome their personal struggles with drugs or violence for example just maybe we would live in a better world.

Each story I read in the booklet that came with the basket truly touched my heart. This is real life & I have been lucky enough to have the life I have. I am so happy there is a place these awesome women can turn to when they need a little pick me up.

On my basket one of the items is personalized with "Lovingly made by Olga". As I read her story in the booklet it made her real & it truly touched me. The best part of her story is the wonderful ending. She is a lady of strength & courage to pick herself up after losing so much in life. But it seems she has so much more now with the help of the Bean Project.

The Women's Bean Project carries so much more than beans :) They carry a nice selction of different products such as Cornbread Mix, Spices/Rubs, and Sweets to name a few.

 They also offer Gift Baskets & Gift Bundles as pictured below!

Oh they carry more than just edible items they also carry Handmade Jewelry as pictured below. This is just one of the beautiful pieces they carry.

I also wanted to mention if you want to help support this program you could host a Bean Party which looks totally fun! Looking for an alternative fundraiser this is the perfect idea through BeanSprouts.
