The team at Everywhere has introduced me to a variety of things, including worthy causes even moms like me can support. They recently sent me this cool FEED 5 woven bracelet from Maiden Nation. I really like the style statement it makes but even more so I like the political, socio-economic, charitable statements it makes too. You see this is no ordinary bracelet. For everyone bought (for $40), five children will be able to eat. Now that says Happy Mother’s Day to me!
The proceeds of this bracelet benefit stylista Lauren Bush’s FEED project. Handcrafted from palm leaves by local artisans in Columbia, the open circle band is both meaningful and beautiful. And with every purchase of these unique bracelets, you’ll provide five school meals through the United Nations World Food Program. The FEED project has provided over 60 million school meals to children living in 62 countries across the world. In addition to the work they have accomplished globally, FEED supports nutrition programs around the world and in the US through the help of organizations like UNICEF and DonorsChoose.org.
More on Maiden Nation
Maiden Nation was founded on one basic principle: empowering women through ethical fashion. Their designers are of the moment. Their products are ethically sourced. And they reinvest their profits into women’s entrepreneurship projects. Their goal is to create a marketplace where items are designed with both beauty and social consciousness in mind. With sayings like “we are connected, not ranked” designed by Gloria Steinem, and “imagine peace” designed by Yoko Ono, the products speak the creative and charity driven sides of women. And anyone, including “just” moms, can be a part of it.
Disclosure: I received a bracelet from Everywhere to review. No other compensation was given and of course all these opinions are my own.
