HPU's Kappa Delta Sorority Helps Raise Money To Prevent Poverty In Uganda Through philanthropy Event


IGH POINT, N.C., April 7, 2010 ? Kappa Delta sorority at High Point University recently helped the poverty situation in Uganda through a philanthropy event – “Bead for Life Jewelry Party.” The event, which raised more than $700, was held March 25.

The event benefited the Bead for Life organization, which is comprised of a group of women in Uganda who make beads and jewelry out of recycled paper. All proceeds from the event will go toward preventing poverty in Uganda.

“We were so excited to have such a beneficial event,” says Megan Hennessey, vice president of community service for Kappa Delta. “We realize that we are blessed with the lives that were given to us and we want to help the less fortunate. Bead for Life is a great way to help prevent poverty. The jewelry is beautiful and is even made from recycled goods ? so we are going green as well.”
