Women in Recovery Raise $600
More to come!
A group of Saint Paul Women in Recovery raised $600 by making and selling malas as Christmas Gifts. “It was great fun to make them, people were delighted by having such a thoughtful stocking stuffer and even more pleased that their purchase would help send a girl to boarding school,” says Duffy Pearce who has hosted most of the events at her Saint Paul home.
Lois Mineau, founder of Grandmother Circles, attended one of the gatherings and was moved by the groups creativity and purpose. “It’s exciting that making them brings peace and serenity to women in recovery, that is then shared with the recipient who uses it as a mala and the proceeds help us help women in Kenya.
The group is now working toward a goal of raising enough for a second scholarship by the Fourth of July. “The nice thing about the malas is that you can be extremely creative in your choice of beads and colors — but ultimately they all have 108 beads and fit in a nice little box that people recognize as a gift,” says Kate D, another member of the Saint Paul group. “It’s very meditative making them. Lots of time to talk and reflect with other women in recovery.”
