2014 Holiday Gift Guide: 100 Good Deeds #1GD
|December 17, 2014||Filed under Advocacy, Reviews|
Disclosure: I received a bracelet in exchange for the feature. All opinions are my own.
The 100 Good Deeds bracelets were created by Mary Fisher, who has spent a decade partnering with at-risk women in Africa and around the world. The cord is strung with one hundred unique glass beads and a single rubber ring. To support the movement, you simply purchase the bracelet, wrap it around your wrist and each time you perform a good deed anonymously, you move the ring over a bead until you reach the 1GD button. Bracelets are currently available in 12 colors and 2 sizes (large and small). 100% of the proceeds support the 100 Good Deeds program. Essentially, your purchases are helping to employ vulnerable women affected by issues such as poverty, violence, and AIDS, while also inspiring a movement to spread RAOK (Random Acts of Kindness). It only counts if you do it anonymously.
Whether you are looking to gift a human rights activist or trying to instill positive values in your children, the 1GD bracelet is a treasure that is both meaningful and beautiful. It seems small, but the potential impact is great!
