Helping Hand Rewards partner Women’s Bean Project (based in Denver, CO) has recently released a new catalog that shows how the organization is spreading their interests…and helping more people in the process. Through sales of items that primarily consist of beans, soup and cookie mixes, Women’s Bean Project helps aid their mission:
“Our mission is to change women’s lives by providing stepping-stones to self-sufficiency through social enterprise. Our goal is to change the world at large by helping women in the program see themselves and their world in a whole new way. They are women who have made the choice to change their lives.”
Part of the new catalog involves two new initiatives. The first being the organization’s expansion into school
fundraising programs. WBP helps track all web orders and offers 35% of all sales to the organizations using their fundraising services. It’s an initiative that not only helps fundraising efforts but also serves the dual purpose of helping women in WBP’s organization.
Women’s Bean is also expanding their catalog assortment from simply homemade food products to jewelry. They are working in conjunction with female jewelry designers to help employ even more women and change even more lives, helping these women learn more life and job-readiness skills to move toward self-sufficiency.
