Our family lives by the motto, "be the change". When I first saw these adorable bracelets from Macy's I absolutely fell in love with them. Not only are they super cute, but they also transform communities by empowering the women who are creating them. Our family loves to do good deeds daily. It can be something as simple as taking a neighbor's newspaper to the door or paying the check for another table at a restaurant. Want to start doing good right now? Just by purchasing one of these bracelets, you are on your way! Head over to Macy's.com and pick one up.
Each bracelet inspires you to do good deeds. They all have 100 glass beads and a rubber ring. The purpose is, as you do a good deed you move the rubber ring over the glass beads. Eventually, you will have completed 100 good deeds, then you begin again! Bracelets are made by vulnerable women in Africa, Haiti, India, Bali, Indonesia and the United States, many who are HIV+. This project gives the women a way to support their families through their earnings. Just by buying one fromMacy's you are doing so much good!

As Mother's Day approaches, most of us take the time to think about what amazing moms we all have. I know that for me, I take the day to thank my mom for teaching me to be an accomplished woman and a strong role model for my own children. My mother is beautiful and strong and made me who I am. What about all the other moms, the mothers all over the world? Macy's recognizes those amazing moms. The beautiful women who are trying to make better lives for their children in Haiti. Heart of Haiti is now in its sixth year of helping Hatian mothers achieve economic freedom by selling handcrafted goods. I purchased two of these handcrafted items, and you can see them below.
The first Fair Trade item I got was the 100 Good Deeds Grigio Bracelet. This bracelet does come in two sizes, so you can choose the one that fits you best. This is a beautiful bracelet that is a daily reminder to do good for others. The adjustable nylon cord is handcrafted by women in Haiti, South Africa, Zambia, Rwanda, Uganda, India, Bali and the U.S. and is strung with 100 glass beads and a rubber ring that slides over each bead to count your good deeds. There are 100 beads and a rubber circle. Each time you do a good deed, you move the circle forward over a bead. The bracelet is available in various colors and makes an incredible gift.
The second Fair Trade item I received was the Heart of Haiti Oval Tobacco Leaf Tray. This is a stunning tray perfect for entertaining. The tray is handcrafted in Hati and part of the fair trade collection in partnership with Global Goods Partners. The tray is made from dried tobacco leaves; hardboard bottom and wood handles. It is a very natural piece that adds a unique addition to any collection.
