Guatemalan Jewelry and Ornaments Event

Please join us on Thursday December 4 from noon to 3:00pm in the Archives Room at the Library. 100% of all proceeds support the Guatemalan school Bendicion de Dios and the artisans of this jewelry!

Bendicion de Dios is a school for children who are not able to attend public school, where each student has to provide their own uniform and materials. In the last year proceeds from these beaded items handcrafted by Guatemalan artisans from Santiago Atitlan have funded books and other materials for the school, 48 water filters, 47 ONIL stoves, clothing and more.
