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!
The 1GD bracelets are part of Macy's Fair Trade Collection. Each bracelet comes packaged with the name of the woman who made it. The bracelets were the idea of Mary Fisher. She believes that “a ‘good deed’ means we’ve gone out of our way to help someone, and only counts if the deed remains anonymous.” These bracelets are not only a fashion statement, but also an everyday reminder to its wearer to do good deeds.
These bracelets can be found on the Macy's site for an Everyday Value of $30. They are available in nine different colors, so you are sure to find one you love.
