Host a Virtual Jewelry Party
Why Virtual Jewelry Parties?
Jewelry Parties are a tangible way to share about Freedom Firm's mission and to sell products the girls make. Proceeds help rescue more girls from the sex trade and provide more employment opportunities.
In the past we've invited you to host in-person parties. Now we invite you to host on-line parties with your friends and family! We've made it easy, and Sarah Mulley is available to guide and support you the whole way. Watch the short tutorial video and sign up to host a virtual party.
Our Gift to you.
When you sign up to host a jewelry party, we'll send you a small collection of sample jewelry to wear during your party and keep as a thank you for hosting.
You and your guests will also receive free shipping during the party!
How to Host a Virtual Party
Please invite your friends and family in whatever works best for you -- texts, Facebook event, email, Evite, etc. Anything will work!
Remember to include:
Date & time. Virtual parties will only take 45 minutes - 1 hour
Link to the Zoom or video chat you will be using
If your guests are new to Zoom, invite these guests to go online and join the call 30 minutes ahead of time so brand new Zoom users can take their time getting connected and work through issues with video or sound without time pressure. Once they are connected, they can step away or leave the call and come back at the time of the party. This website has a variety of tutorials, and please contact Sarah Mulley for additional help (firstname.lastname@example.org)
