  9. 9. L anyards have becomeincreasingly popular in recent years.People use them for a variety of reasonsranging from hanging identificationbadges to keeping keys on them. Butthere is another story behind some ofthese lanyards that you may not be awareof. The online company BooJeeBeads hasspearheaded successful program that in-troduces Free Trade lanyards to theircustomers. The program is called AMothers Promise and it works on a
  10. 10. simple principle. Talented mothers inGuatemala use their skills to createbeaded and weaved lanyards They receive a fairwage for their work, which allows themto provide food, clothing and shelter fortheir children. Some of the living conditions inGuatemala are far removed from how welive here in the Western world. It is notuncommon for families to barely be ableto put enough food on the table to feedtheir large families. And often times,medical needs are pushed to the sidebecause the money simply isnt there. Itis difficult for mothers to secure
  11. 11. employment outside of the homebecause they are largely needed by theirfamilies as well as their communities.And that is what makes the Free Tradelanyards program so special. Themothers are able to make a living wagewithout ever having to leave their home.They can tend to their children whileearning an income. The BooJeeBeads program has beenso successful that the company hopes toexpand it in years to come. They seethat their customers not only get thebenefit of knowing that they are helpinga family in need, but they also getunusually beautiful hand-crafted
  12. 12. lanyards. Wearing a Mother’s Promiselanyard is a great way to refer other peo-ple to this program. What a way to assistmothers overseas so they can create abetter life for themselves and their fami-lies. If you want to support this Fair Tradeprogram but dont see a use for a lanyard,you probably just need to think outsidethe box. Lanyards are becoming moreand more popular every day in everysegment of the population. Many menuse them to hold their keys and theyleave the lanyards hanging out of theside of their pockets. It is nowconsidered fashionable and is also a
  13. 13. a great way to ensure that you dont loseyour keys. Lanyards are popular for ID cards,but their usefulness is taking off forkeys, iPods, whistles, etc. They areespecially useful if you work in an officethat requires an ID card to be worn at alltimes. It is sometimes difficult to rememberto bring it to work every day, but if youhang it on the mirror on the dash of yourcar, it becomes pretty hard to forget tograb when you get to work So you arepretty much out of excuses for notsupporting fair trade lanyards as youaccentuate your style while also helping
  14. 14. out those less fortunate.
