Launching City Chik beads in Ghana has been a labor of love, a lesson in trust, and a leap of faith in following my heart. It is one of my largest delights in life....
I want to share with you the passion Philipp and I have for this project...well first I guess I should introduce Philipp...but before I do....I want to share a message I recently received from Philipp..
"....we are also working very hard to make CITY CHIK SHOP a very great and wonderful one. we will work hard to produce lovely beads for the people all around the world." (my heart melts every time I read it !)
Philipp and I met in Ghana a few years ago- he had reached out saying that we could do wonderful work together. I knew he was going to school for business and he saw all the donations I had brought from well wishers in the United States.
City Chik beads is a project that connects us in our souls...you see this has been Philipp's dream- to build and run a business and it has been my dream to privately fund a starter project for City Chik...this my friends is what you call a win win situation! Philipp had put his heart and soul into starting this but he needed more funding and that my friends is when our journey began....
This pic- is during the construction....now get ready for the inside..
and now meet the very talented ladies that create these beautiful pieces..

You can see their creations in the shop on the website. All of our funding goes directly back into this project...because we are just getting started and their creativity is on FIRE!
I receive such lovely updates and it is a constant reminder...that we are all capable of making our dreams come true but perhaps the best reminder is that we can HELP each other in reaching our dreams...and to be honest that is just the BEST!
I'm busy working on my blog posts. Watch this space!
