I have a bunch of Mardi Gras Beads that I would like to give to some type of non-profit type of an organization, if there is one. I live in the Lafayette area and don't want to just throw them away.

A couple years back I came home to Shreveport for the parade, it was cold and actually snowed at the parade. Needless to say we collected alot of beads 44lbs of them. I came back to Nebraska where my work was having a Mardi Gras party, I asked the people putting on the party if they had beads. They said yes we should have enough for everyone, I asked if they needed more because I had a **** load in the car. It was fun at the party walking around and seeing everyone wearing our beads, the cheap ones my work bought were still lying on a table out front in the lobby. Maybe you can find someone trying to buy some for a party on e-bay or something.
