ADVERTISEMENT: WEAR AWARENESS. BAND FOR GOOD™

I LOVE helping people and I really want everyone to be happy, to know that every day when I wake up I could change someone’s life for the better. I like making a difference in someone’s life, even if it’s a small one and I'm glad that there are a lot of simple things we can do to help other people.


Earlier this week, I received an email about this amazing cause that i wanted to share.

Backed by yogi Christina Sabatini, the Global Wristband Project is a fundraiser that sells hippie-esque anklets and bracelets made from recycled materials. The method used to make the wristbands is a weaving process called saori. Check out the gallery to look at the various colorful styles of these bracelets for a good cause.

Global Wristband Project is a socially conscious company selling eco-friendly and fair-trade products that help raise awareness and financial aid for global artisans and service projects around the world. Global Wristband Project works with a tsunami relief foundation in Thailand that supports local artisans and victims of the 2004 tsunami disaster. It was began in 2010 by Christina Sabatini​​​ as part of a fundraising initiative to raise $20,000 for HIV/AIDS prevention projects in South Africa.


There are currently 29 Global Wristband artisans receiving full-time employment as part of a hand-weaving art therapy program. Thousands of Global Wristbands have helped raise over $80,000 and increased awareness for over 15 service projects around the globe.

So, what are you waiting for? Purchase your amazing wristband or anklet here, all handwoven from recycled materials! One purchase can change someone's life, be that difference.
