Who knew jewelry made from paper could be so beautiful!?!
When my friend Jen invited me to a jewelry party by 31bits.com to support women in Uganda, I immediately jumped on the computer and went to the website. I couldn't believe how amazing the pieces were and had to have a few pieces for myself. I couldn't choose between a multi-colored bracelet or a grey and white one... SO I GOT BOTH!
AREN'T THEY AMAZING?!?!
When i thought about the women they supported to rise above poverty, looked at their faces printed on each of their tags, and read their stories of how they fought to live and make a fair dime for their products, it made spending my money that much easier.
A few more websites that use the power of fashion to help others are...
Because I now know that it is possible to shop for unique pieces that not only look great but also better other people's lives, it is just one more reason I will never get bored of the hunt for the next best thing.
