“The only people for me are the MAD ones, the ones












who are mad to live,
         
                                                                                 
 
mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of 

everything at the same time,       
                                                                                               
the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing

        



but burnburnburn,

like fabulous yellow roman candles 


exploding like spiders across the stars.”

Fair Trade Ethiopian Coffee Bean Jewelry.

Ethiopia holds a special place in my heart. I have been blessed to visit three times to work in an orphanage for children with HIV/AIDS and to teach English.


A close family friend, who is the executive director and co-founder of of the Beza International Ministries approached me with these beautiful necklaces made of coffee beans by Ethiopians living with HIV/AIDS.

The Beza Entoto Outreach Program was created by Beza International Ministries as a result of the growing number of people suffering from HIV/AIDS in Entoto, a region in Addis Ababa, the capital city of Ethiopia.

The Beza Entoto Outreach Program established a project that would allow individuals living with HIV/AIDS to generate their own income.

Jewelry making was chosen because does not demand expensive equipment and is not arduous. The individuals who make the jewelry are paid a sustainable income and by purchasing a piece of jewelry you are directly helping someone in Ethiopia provide for themselves and for their families.


I pay a fair trade price for each necklace and also donate 30% of each purchased piece
directly to the Beza Entoto Outreach Program.
Please visit my new website if you are interested in purchasing a necklace and to learn more about the jewelry and the beautiful people who make them:
