We have figured out how to make snowmen in Africa! ☃️
Khutsala Artisans is an incredibly important part of the Project Canaan Ministry because it employs 100+ people, who in turn are providing for 1,000+ people from their wages. While we make and sell dozens of different 3D animals, keychains, and lots of SwaziMUD jewelry (handmade ceramic beads), it is our annual Christmas tree ornament that is our biggest seller of the year.
This year our ornament is the CUTEST little snowman, complete with a red scarf made from authentic Swazi fabric. And of course, we made a larger decoration to sit on your mantle and match the ornament.
So now we need to sell them all! I am looking for 20 people TODAY to become Khutsala Brand Ambassadors and commit to selling 50 ornaments each (snowman or an assortment of any of our ornaments). They are all in our warehouse in Michigan and ready to ship to you next week! You would be surprised how many people post the ornaments on their social media pages and sell 50 to 100 within hours!
Our ornaments are only $12 each and make a perfect gift for anyone on your list, plus you are helping employ Swazi’s with all the profit going back to help provide for our 248 children. Will you be a Khustala Ambassador this year? If yes, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or mandy@Heartforafrica.org and we will get you set up!
We also have a really great fundraising program through Khutsala where we can make customized keychains (or ornaments) for your school, club, sports team or even your next missions trip! The photos below are two examples of custom work that we have done recently. It’s an easy and fresh way to raise money without selling high calorie snacks!
This past week we also worked on a beautiful beaded poinsettia bowl, and so while we haven’t made any yet I thought I would show it to you today to see if anyone likes them and would buy one? It’s 9” wide x 2.4" high and will retail for $45. If you are interested in ordering one (or more), please email me directly at email@example.com and I will bring them back with me when we head to the US/Canada in October.
We need your support more than ever with so many jobs on the line. Will you shop at Khutsala today or become a Khutsala Ambassador? THANK YOU!
