Help Haiti Bracelets



Choose: Haiti is a new initiative that has gone viral. It is a project where people in Haiti collect pieces of litter, newspaper and plastic bottles which the get converted into bracelets by earthquake survivors.


They’re $10 a piece and already in the first week 10,000 have been sold. Aside from cleaning up the streets and turning trash into a lovely designed accessory, the bracelets have also provided income and jobs for people in Haiti.
