Style That Gives Back: I AM Charm Bracelets

Look good, do good. That’s the mantra we’re living by this summer with our Style That Gives Back series. We’re happy to be back this week with The Leakey Collection’s “I AM” Charm Bracelets. The Leakey Collection is an organization that focuses on creating work opportunities in East Africa, while maintaining both environmental and cultural integrity. Their “I AM” Bracelets don’t just look beautiful, they are designed to remind us of the important things in life.

Made from fallen branches, these bracelets symbolized important values that all women cherish. Each charm is branded by hand with a meaningful sign: Peace, Heart (which represents love), or Flower (which represents beauty).  They definitely will be a beautiful and meaningful addition to any outfit.

The Leakey Collection operates using a Fair Trade business model. They research innovative ways to use natural materials in order to create beautiful lifestyle and Fair Trade products, while also providing  employment opportunities for those in rural Kenya. Those who bead for The Leakey Collection for only two months then have the resources to educate their child for one year. In addition, all workers receive a living wage and 5% of sales are donated back into the community.

You can find these accessories on our Trend Tables at select campus bookstores. Help a worthy cause and add some color to your wardrobe – it truly is Style that Gives Back.
