We love it when we find organizations that truly illustrate the spirit of The Big Change Project and Bravelets is just that.

Founded by Stephanie Hansen in 2011, Bravelets was born out of her own family’s struggle after her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer.  Stephanie was looking for a way to remind her mother and her family to be brave during this difficult time, and to remember that they were all united in her mother’s fight.  Bravelets was created to show unity and support for a cause.

But Stephanie took it one step further and looked for a way to give back and help others (VERY Big Change!).   She decided to donate $10 from every sale from her not-for-profit organization to another organization or cause in need of support.  Since it’s inception, Bravelets has partnered with more than 1,000 causes and donated more than $713,000.  Way to go, Stephanie!

Bravelets offers a variety of bracelets, necklaces, and rings, each available in different colors.  If you are looking to partner with Bravelets to raise money for your cause, simply create a Bravelets fundraising page and start sharing your Brave Page with your friends and followers.  They can order online and have their purchases shipped directly to them from Bravelets, and $10 from each order is donated to your organization or cause.

If you are looking to give gifts with a purpose or support a meaningful cause, visit Bravelets for the full list of partner organizations and choose which organization you would like to support with your purchase.

We love the spirit of Bravelets and Stephanie’s commitment to giving back.  We give her a great, BIG tip of the hat for all her hard work!!
