  1. Hi Rupalee,

    I would like to volunteer if possible. I love designing but due to many reasons have not used my skillls.Would loove to contribute in your efforts.

  2. I LOVE Rupalee’s Friendship Balls! If you have ever had to buy a gift for someone really special but didn’t know what to buy the Friendship ball is absolutely perfect!

    This gift is a sliver round ball that opens. Inside, it can hold only small things…bath salts, tea, small soaps, jewelry, even a little candy, but the legend behind the Friendship ball is that in Old English times friends, sisters, and mothers used to exchange the ball on special occasions, (or just when we have a couple of extra dollars) each time filled with something different – a lace handkerchief, chocolates, jewelry, etc.

    When you give a friendship ball there is a tag on it that reads:
    A ball is a circle, no beginning, no end. It keeps us together like our circle of friends.
    The treasure inside for just you to see is the treasure of friendship you have granted me.

    This ball comes with a lot of meaning but the idea behind it is, you don’t keep it. The idea is you keep what is inside and when a friend is down, going through some rough times, you but something inside and give it away. This ball keeps getting passed on between friends, each time with something inside to cheer them up.

    I have been doing this with my sisters and daughter for about 3 years now, and each time I am given the friendship ball it puts a smile on my face and I can’t wait to fill it and cheer someone else up.

  3. The offering of a Friendship Ball is an old tradition symbolizing a deep friendship between two people. The ball is round and therefore has no beginning and no end. It is ageless and timeless like true friends. Sitting in the sunlight, it sparkles the way a good friend does!
