I couldn’t let Christmas pass without taking a moment to tip my hat to the Women’s Bean Project.
I learned about the program and their work while photographing an event for the Denver Chamber of Commerce that was held there. The first thing I noticed was the pure joy radiated by the women involved with the project. While I don’t claim to know much about the project, I must say they seem to be one of the most worthwhile non-profits in town.
In a world where corporations are seeking increase profits by eliminating or offshoring jobs, the Women’s Bean Project is creating jobs for those who would normally have difficulty gaining employment. And the morale of these women shows clearly that of any of our rights, the right to earn a living is perhaps the most valuable of all.
Please take a moment to visit their website and see what the program is doing and contribute in any way you can… or at least find out where you can buy their delicious foods and gift baskets.
And to the ladies at the Women’s Bean Project, my hat is off to you!
