So I have to ask...have you heard of the Shine Project? If not, let me fill you in...it was started by a pretty amazing woman, Ashley, and the idea behind it is to inspire people to go out of their comfort zone and reach their goals. Last year The Shine Project started a non-profit called The Shine Scholarship Project. They raise money to send at risk youth to college. How cool is that? I love people who have a passion to make change in the world! If you want to see a quick but very good video about it click here, you'll also get to 'meet' Ashley...she is such a cutie :-)
Ashley contacted me not too long ago about her shop that sells products to help raise money for The Shine Scholarship, it's called Threads by The Shine Project. Threads employs the students that they give the scholarships to so they have continuous money coming in for college. The students make all sorts of amazing bracelets that are very Anthopology-esque.
The Change Bracelet. I love the simplicity of it, so trendy right now!
If you have a moment, head on over to Threads and maybe grab a few things for you or someone you love...how about birthday presents, Christmas gifts, a 'just thinking of you' gift. You will feel so good knowing you are helping out at-risk youth and at the same time look stylish doing it...total win-win!
Thanks for stopping by today!
