Hurray for Lara and the NCL!

Lara W. (Han's mom and lanyard originator!) celebrated a big lanyard jackpot this morning.    Last fall her pal Marlene dreamed up a partnership between The Woodlands/Conroe area NCL (National Charity League) and the lanyard project.  Together they held a series of lanyard workshops and a big Bead-A-Thon over the course of the spring semester.  They held the final workshop this week with the Sustainers group, and we were all very pleased to have had so much interest, such good attendances, a huge number of beautiful lanyards, as well as a large quantity of donated beads with these philanthropic mother/daughter classes.

This morning, Lara learned that the news was even better than she thought.  The group wants to continue our partnership next year, plus they made an outright donation to the Children's Neuroblastoma Cancer Foundations of $1000 in honor of the lanyard project.  These fabulous women are great to work with and we look forward to next year!  The amazing thing is that this partnership has focused primarily on just one chapter of NCL (The Woodlands Chapter) and there are several in the area.
