"One of the sayings in our country is Ubuntu - the essence of being human. Ubuntu speaks particularly about the fact that you can't exist as a human being in isolation. It speaks about our interconnectedness. You can't be human all by yourself, and when you have this quality - Ubuntu - you are known for your generosity." - Archbishop Desmond Tutu
Ubuntu Orphan Bracelets
Be known for your generosity and help someone else in need. Ubuntu organization has the Orphan Bracelet Campaign to support orphans in Africa.
"The orphan bracelet is handcrafted by local South African woman living with HIV/AIDS using (lead free) copper, brass and aluminum wire.100% of the proceeds go towards helping mother's and children in South Africa whose lives have been severely impacted by HIV/AIDS. No matter how many you wear, your DO Ubuntu Orphan bracelets, will not set off airport security alarms. DO wear them in the shower."
The bracelets look amazing stacked up, and each and every purchase truly makes a difference! For as little as $15 (the same price as a lipstick!) you are getting an amazing piece of jewelry AND helping a child. Really, I can not think of a better use of $15. PLEASE buy one here http://www.orphanbracelet.org/online-shop/buy.
Bloomingdales is now a partner. Not only can you order them online, you can visit your local Bloomingdales to purchase them as well.
***CONTEST***BelleDuJour is going to do a give-a-away. If you buy a bracelet, please tweet me or email me a picture of you wearing it and I am going to pick 5 people to send a free rosewood Tibetan bracelet that I make and wear all the time too! Absolutely free! She will pick the 5 "winners" on March 15! That gives you a month to order and receive and tweet her a picture of the Orphan Bracelets. Follow her on Twitter: @BelleDuJourNYC
