IMG_0002Thank you for partnering with us as we work to end the cycle of poverty by empowering the women in Arusha, Tanzania through employment training and education.

To host a party contact Tiffany Kennon at: to schedule your party date and time.

If you live within a two (2) hour radius of Lansing, Michigan, a representative of Shining A Light will attend your party – bringing and handling the sale of our product line. If you live outside this area, you can still host a Sandal Party.

A party can be hosted anywhere in the continental U.S.  Upon request, a party package will be shipped to you. This package will include sandal samples, invitations, brochures and sales sheets. You will be required to provide a deposit to cover the cost of the sandals we send. Deposit must be paid prior to shipping of package selected. After the party, mail back samples and your deposit will be returned to you.

Following are some suggestions to assist you in planning your event:

  • Guest List – we suggest you double the number of invitees, as our experience has been that 50% of those invited attend.
  • Invitations – we can provide pre-printed postcard invitations.
  • Food/Beverage – provide light hors d’oeuvres or dessert with beverages. Whatever you decide, keep it easy and simple.
  • Display Area – we will need a table or place to display the sandals.
  • Email Reminder – three (3) days prior to your party, send a reminder notice.

Your party is very important to the work of Shining A Light. As a thank you for hosting a party, you will receive a pair of sandals of your choice. We look forward to you having a very successful and fun party at your home.
