So I wanted to do something nice for my Jamie! I got these cool bracelets from Macy’s called 100 Good Deeds. They’re handmade by women in developing countries and are promoting doing good deeds. And if any good deed doer deserves a cute bracelet – it’s Jamie!
The 100 Good Deeds are made by vulnerable women, many HIV+, who’ve been trained for this work in countries like Uganda, Zambia, South Africa and more. It gives the women a way to support their families and empowers them to do good deeds around the world.
The bracelet is made of 100 beads, nylon braided cord and a rubber band and is available at Macy’s – they also soften with time. They have a lot of charitable programs like this such as these Path to Peace baskets I’ve blogged about before.
the designer of the 100 Good Deeds Bracelets, and the face of the movement,
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
The cool thing too is that the bracelets are hand-signed by the woman that made them – and designate the country they are in.
Macy’s has these bracelets available for just $30 and in 9 colors. I love the red! They sent me 3 bracelets – one for me (I chose Pewter), one for Jamie (she chose Grigio) and ONE FOR YOU (in Dusk). I think the price is very affordable too for a bracelet that promotes such a great movement and is cute too! So head on over to Macy’s and pick your bracelet – then enter to win one from me – so you can give it to someone that does good deeds in your life!
