Shop for a Cause: Bracelets to Benefit African Orphans

Want to do good with your accessories? These rubber and wire Ubantu bracelets, made by HIV positive women in South Africa, serve two purposes. The women make a living while caring for their families at home, and profits go toward supporting Botshabelo, an orphanage for children left behind by the African AIDs epidemic. Angels in the Dust, a documentary telling Botshabelo’s founder Marion Cloete’s story, is a must see for anyone concerned about the world’s children. To add to the heartbreak, the orphans’ stories are interwoven with the dramatic parallel saga of the orphaned elephants of Pilanesberg National Park in South Africa. The bracelets are $15 each and come in small, medium and large — click here to buy one. And for more information on the movie, click here.

I love the whole african exotic look of the bracelets. I think $15 for just one though is a little pricey
