Seeking Your Ideas and Energy!

There are a variety of easy ways for you to help us sell more products, thus creating
more work for and improving the income of families in Guatemala.

* We are seeking new wholesale accounts. Please refer any stores which you think
 may be interested in carrying our products.

* Does your workplace have space for crafters to sell their wares? We are always
 looking for new venues! Anywhere between DC and Portland ME is possible.

* Interested in having a house party? If you are between DC and Portland ME, we 
may be available to come to your house to sell. Otherwise, you can sell products
 yourself, at work, home, school, university, church, or club, and you can keep 
10% of sales as a fundraiser for one of our projects, your favorite charity or school,
or to make some extra money yourself.

* Do fundraising for your church, school or club by marketing our website. 10% of
all sale generated using your organization's discount code with be donated at year-end
to your organization, the charity of its choice, or the tax-exempt organization 
which accepts donations for A Thread of Hope's school and ergonomic chairs projects.
Let us know if you are interested and we will send along further information!

We are very grateful for your suggestions and ideas! Thank you!

I will be attending the Social Forum of the Americas in Guatemala City in October
and will be reporting to you on highlights.
