Hi there! Last week, while researching gifts that give back for Mother’s Day, I stumbled upon these Love is Project bracelets and fell in LOVE.
Some History on the Love is Project:
First, I want to talk more about the Love is Project and how it all started. In 2012, Chrissie Lam left a job in corporate fashion and moved to Kenya. While there, she connected with a group of female artisans from the Maasai tribe. “These women made vibrant, high-quality, and gorgeous beaded items. Blown away by their craft and compassionate community, I worked with these artisans to design a bracelet emblazoned with one powerful word: LOVE.”
Chrissie feels that LOVE is the one word that connects us all while encouraging us to THRIVE! She then founded Love is Project.
How to get involved:
Love is Project has grown rapidly and now supports 2000 female artisans in 10 different countries. How can we all get involved?

My fabulous giveaway:
Female artisans craft these love bracelets in communities near Lake Atitlán, Guatemala. “Woven on mini foot looms, these bracelets are inspired by the woven hair ribbons Guatemalan women use in their hair wraps.” Even more unique, each artist selects colors that represent the spirit of her unique village.
The program that oversees this venture states that artisans can typically invest up to 90% of their income back into their families and communities. This provides women the opportunity to educate their daughters and have access to better health care.
The bracelets remind us that we are all connected and that anything is possible.
The set of three love bracelets sells for $135, and I’m giving it away to a lucky winner.
