I am a jewelry minimalist. I always have my ring on and when I head out I’ll throw on 1 or 2 other items. A necklace, bracelet or another ring. I am a strong believer of less is more.
Last Thursday the Stefanie from Ooph.com introduced me to The Leakey Collection and now I am in love!
Buy Bracelets=Educate Kids. Utilizing remnants of Zulugrass, Maasai artisans are designing one-of-a-kind bracelets to symbolize the bright futures of educated children. The Leakey Collection will donate 100% of their profits from the sales of these bracelets to pay for teachers’ salaries in rural Kenya. Each 26″ bracelet is wound 4 times and packaged on a specially designed color story card. Purchasing 5 bracelets pays for a teacher’s salary for 1 day.The Impact:After the first year of this program, the ratio of kids to teachers in rural Kenya went from 80:1 to 40:1. Furthermore the funds have enabled Maasai families to send a second child to school. In every single case, that second child has been a girl.
