First Pilot Talk of the Year

FIRST PILOT TALK OF THE YEAR: CAMMIE MILLER FROM THREADS OF HOPE

Next Tuesday, September 22 at co-curricular (11:15-12:05), we will have our first Pilot Talk of the school year. Our guest speaker is Cammie Miller, the founder and director of the non-profit organization Threads of Hope. Threads of Hope works with the Children’s Heritage Foundation to break the cycle of poverty in Haiti and Uganda by teaching adolescents useful skills, such as sewing. These young people sew bags, aprons, and headbands with beautiful Ugandan fabric that are then sold in the United States. All profits go directly back into supporting the Threads of Hope program. Mrs. Miller will be talking about why she started Threads of Hope, her experiences in Haiti and Uganda, and best of all – she will be selling bags, aprons, and headbands after her talk to OLP students! This is an incredible opportunity to get your Christmas shopping done and help break the cycle of poverty! Parents, teachers, and students are all welcome to attend the Pilot Talk.

Check out the ASB bulletin board outside the campus life office for some sample bags and aprons. DON’T FORGET TO BRING MONEY with you to the Pilot Talk on Tuesday! Prices for the items are as follows:
bags: $20
bags with zippers: $25
aprons: $20
headbands: $5
beads/jewelry: $10-15

You can also buy bags, aprons, and headbands online on Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/shop/ThreadsOfHopeInt
100% of the proceeds from all purse and apron sales go back into the program to support economic development in these countries.
