Fun Find Friday – Peas For Prosperity

Written by Patti on March 26th, 2010

Good Morning, Darlings!

Today’s fun find comes from sweet Christy at Peas For Prosperity. A great organization that sells not only black eyed peas to eat, but also jewelry made from these little gems that are thought to bring good luck to all us southerners on New Year’s Day.

And the packaging is cute, too!

Too Adorable!

Here’s a photo of Christy, isn’t she super cute?

Owner, CEO Christy Annis of Peas for Prosperity

We got a chance to meet this winter at Sugar Coma and have been friends on Facebook ever since. I love what she is doing. Christy is not only bringing about awareness of the hungry in our society, but with each sale, she donates $1 to the Atlanta Foodbank. Here, I’ll let Christy explain it:

Peas for Prosperity celebrates Tradition, Good Luck, and Prosperity. Peas for Prosperity is about peas but it’s also about these things:

Peas for Prosperity is about giving back to your community, doing whatever you can to help others in need, no matter how large or small the contribution may be;

Peas for Prosperity is about thinking outside the box, about embracing change, about new ideas and opportunities, about helping others to help me;

Peas for Prosperity is about connecting with others through peas, accomplishing new goals, tackling the unthinkable, recreating your life, exactly as you would like it to be.

Peas for Prosperity is about a lot of things, but overall, it is about making the world a better place through peas.

Peas for Prosperity donates a portion of the proceeds from every bag of Peas sold to charities who provide assistance to people who need a Second Chance.

Peas for Prosperity currently donates $1 from the sale of every bag of peas to the Atlanta Community Food Bank.

The Atlanta Community Food Bank (ACFB) currently distributes nearly TWO MILLION pounds of food and other donated grocery items each month to more than 800 non-profit partner agencies in 38 counties in Metro Atlanta and North Georgia.

ACFB supports a wide range of people in need, from children to the working poor. Food pantries, community kitchens, childcare centers, night shelters and senior center are among the agencies that receive product from the Food Bank and provide food and other critical resources for low-income Georgians who suffer from hunger and food insecurity. The Food Bank also operates several community projects to aid our agencies in community building, technical assistance and advocacy efforts.

Take a walk through her virtual shop and look around.

I bet Martha would agree with me when I say, Peas For Prosperity, it’s a good thing.

Happy Friday my Darlings!

xoxo, Patti
