I spent the day with a great galpal of mine today and I shared with her a great gift that I love and personally wear. She suggested that I share this great info here on the blog and so here are relief beads.
Relief Beads are handmade from sand by tribes in Africa and are currently being assembled by refugees in Darfur. These decorative and beautifully simple bracelets are neutral and match anything you wear.
Each one is hand made and greatly unique. I love wearing mine every day.
Relief Beads especially supports the refugee women making Relief Beads at the Women's Development Center in Darfur and is currently raising funds to provide relief to malnourished children and build a Children's Malnutrition Center.
You too can help support the women of Darfur by purchasing one of these bracelets for yourself or for a friend. If you are in Warwick, NY or the area of the Hudson Valley you can pick one (or two) up at Mima's (http://www.mimas.com/) or you can click on the title of this blog post and it will take you too the Relief Beads web page.
They really make a statement when you wear them - both fashion and for women!
Be Well and Enjoy!
