I love the look of handmade jewelry, but I don’t always have the time or the desire to make my own stuff. So, I like to search for interesting pieces online. I recently added this Jacaranda Bracelet from The Literacy Site to my wish list.
The Jacaranda Bracelet measures eight inches in length. The beads are ceramic and it is handmade by women in Kenya. It is part of the Global Girlfriend network of products the site offers.
These items help women in developing countries gain economic security by providing fair wages for their handiwork. Your purchase of the bracelet also donates a book to a child in need through Room to Read and First Book, two charities supporting literacy efforts among young people.
This pretty multicolored bracelet would go with almost anything in your closet. At $12, it’s also a real bargain. From past experience, I can tell you that you’d easily spend about that much buying beads and findings to make your own bracelet.
I’ve ordered from The Literacy Site several times in the past and never had any problems getting my order on time. The quality of everything I’ve purchased has been great and it’s nice to know that items you buy from this site help provide books to needy kids.
If you want to support The Literacy Site’s fundraising efforts without buying anything from their store, you can visit their homepage. If you click on their homepage ad every day, sponsors pledge to donate books to kids in need. You can also send free ecards or use their online search tool to help donate books.
