Especially if your mixing and matching these three, all of which make the world a better place:
♥ Handmade Friendship Bracelet, She's the First ($15, pictured). Designs vary, but each one is made with love by 18-year-old Mayra Reanda, a She's the First Scholar who graduated from Starfish One by One in Guatemala and now runs her own artisan management business. All proceeds directly benefit She's the First for girls' education.
♥ 1GD Bracelet, Abataka Foundation ($30). More than just pretty arm candy, these bracelets are reminders to do good deeds every day. All proceeds get invested into the 100 Good Deeds Program to help empower women around the world.
♥ Beads for Learning, The Leaky Collection ($13). This colorful wrap bracelet is made by artisans from remnants of Zulugrass. 100% of proceeds help pay teachers' salaries in rural Kenya. Buy one for yourself and grab a few extra for your BFFs (because 5 bracelets = a teacher's salary for 1 day)!
