The people this lady employs cannot obtain any employment in the country they live in due to economic conditions and a pervasive attitude of disrespect and negligence for the disabled.

Over the years, this lady has developed a small enterprise into a business that employs over twenty people in manufacturing handmade gifts, jewelry, desk top items, Christmas tree ornaments, creche scenes, decorative Christmas items, household items, serving and eating utensils, and animal figurines. Handmade carpets, gift bags, totes, purses, and table runners uniquely designed in Damascus silk and other local fabrics make wonderful holiday gifts.

Each item is made by hand from native olive wood and is a unique treasure. The accompanying photos are a small sample of the craftsmanship and intricate detail that makes the items this small enterprise produces truly wonderful works of art.

One cannot name this woman nor name the name of the business in Jordan. The anonymity is necessary for the lady’s personal safety and is obligatory and politically necessary to the government in Jordan.

This lady comes from a wealthy local family in Birmingham, Alabama and could have enjoyed a life of ease and relative luxury in the United States but opted to serve her beliefs and other people in a country that neither enjoys the freedom or economic prosperity that the majority of people in the United States do.

The economic upheaval of the last several years has harmed the sales of this company’s products.

You can view the entire catalogue at this site and place orders with Glad Tidings locally by calling (205) 661–6763. All sales and distribution personnel in the United States are uncompensated volunteers. All proceeds go to benefit the disabled people in Jordan.

Help yourself to a unique Christmas treasure and help others during the Christmas season.
