Host: Oconomowoc Circle of Friendship Bridge
Looking for unique and high quality Holiday gifts?
Saturday, December 7, Friendship Bridge will be here in our Harvest Cafe Dining Room offering beautiful Guatemalan artisan merchandise for sale including purses, jewelry, and ornaments.
Also on sale will be the handmade wool mittens - "swittens"- made from the sweaters many of you have kindly donated throughout the year in the basket at the checkout counters.
Your purchases support Guatemalan women entrepreneurs with microcredit AND provide you with some lovely Christmas gifts.
The Harvest Cafe will also be offering discounted local beverages during this time.
Hope to see you December 7!
Friendship Bridge is a nonprofit organization that empowers impoverished Guatemalan women to create a better future for themselves, their children and their communities through microfinance and education. Friendship Bridge works primarily with indigenous populations in rural areas where the rate of poverty in Guatemala is the highest. While illiteracy and poverty rates are staggering in these regions, the women are determined to create a change.
