Bling

I bought this bracelet over the weekend and my three year old has been asking to hold the hand I'm wearing it on ever since - lol! I'm usually not real big on jewelry but when I saw that Shade carries these bracelets, along with other recycled paper jewelry from Beads of Hope Africa, I wanted one!

Beads of Hope Africa is a fair trade cooperative that teaches and compensates women living in the refugee camps of war-torn Uganda for making beads out of recycled paper. The beads are sold in North America and money from the sales is put back into the Ugandan community by way of educational scholarships for children living in orphanages. Way cool.

P.S. I'm starting to think that Shade, along with all of the other products I have promoted in person and on the blog, should send me some coupons or something!;)

No kidding! I think so too...Free advertizing should be compensated.

I am amazed that they are made of recycled paper!! They are so beautiful!
