I work with children who have been abandoned or abused and I use beads for therapy. I am wondering if you have any spare beads you could donate to me on behalf of the children with whom I work. Many times, the children don’t even know they are “working” and beads offer them a way to make necklaces, bracelets or do crafts while getting their “story” out. I have always paid for the beads and supplies myself, but I have to say it’s getting a little expensive.
Do you have any beads (even irregular), charms, findings or supplies that I could use with the kids?
I have never asked for a donation like this before and am not sure what you would need from me. I would be happy to show you the tax information for our company, Koinonia Family Services. Or I could send you a letter from my supervisor if you need.
I would love to continue using beads for the children and would appreciate any donation you could give me.
I look forward to hearing from you.
