GIVE Bracelets Review & Giveaway ~ Each bracelet purchased feeds a hungry child

Give Jewelry offered me a review of some of their beautiful bracelets.  I was amazed at the variety of pretty bracelets they offer on their site.  Not only are there friendship bracelets that girls would love to have and share, but bracelets for women, boys, men and many different styles and colors as well.

It was hard to choose exactly what would make the best choice not only for myself and my girls, but for this review as well.  I wanted to choose a variety so I could give an honest review of a few different bracelets that I thought my followers would like, but still get what I will wear as well.

So, first I let my 8 year old daughter, Allison choose a set of Friendship bracelets for her and her BFF.  This is the one she chose ~

Friendship bracelet in Blue - 

Then I decided that I also should pick a bracelet or two for myself - and maybe one to give to a friend.  So I chose these three ~  Charm Bracelet in Lucky Lime Green, Charm Bracelet in Hibiscus Maroon, and After Midnight Freshwater Pearl bracelet.

Now my only problem is trying to decide which to keep and which to GIVE to my friend - lol.  I love the bracelet featured on GIVE Jewelry's logo and it is not available.  After the difficult decision of choosing the bracelets - my only problem was that I had to wait for them to arrive!  But it did not take very long for the box to show up on my doorstep!

Here is a little about GIVE from their website:

Bracelets with purpose.  
Give Jewelry is a sustainable movement to provide food for children in orphanages throughout Indonesia. The vision is simple: every bracelet purchased directly benefits kids in need. So no matter what type of bracelet you choose; friendship, charm, leather, beaded, cuff or any of our other bracelets, you're really choosing to make a difference. 

Friendship Bracelets, charm bracelet, leather bracelet, beaded bracelets, cuff bracelets and more... With every bracelet you purchase, Give Jewelry provides one week of nutritious food (that's 21 meals!) for a child in need.

As I opened the cloth envelopes that each bracelet was lovingly placed in, my excitement grew.  I couldn't wait to show my girls - thankfully Allison's BFF happened to be sleeping over so we could give her the new friendship bracelet right away!  My youngest, Lydia wanted in on the fun, so she is wearing the Hibiscus Maroon bracelet to show it off for this review.

The girls LOVE the friendship bracelets and each told me they don't plan to EVER take them off.  I did tell them I thought it might be a good idea not to shower with them on, but otherwise they are welcome to wear them any other time - lol.

As for my choices - well, they are very pretty, but I can not wear the green and maroon bracelets for very long.  They have adorable silver star-like-shaped beads in between the green/maroon beads that are a hard plastic-like material and actually feel a bit pokey on my wrist.  I can wear them for short amounts of time but then they become uncomfortable.  I only wish I had chosen this one instead (even though I'm not a fan of biking, it is so pretty!  I hope GIVE makes more like this one) -

I mentioned in an email about the "pokey" bracelets.  GIVE sent me new ones to try instead and I absolutely LOVE them - my youngest daughter helped me choose - we ended up with 2 'team' color bracelets and one beautiful plum colored charm bracelet ~  here are pictures:

Those these are not our school or team colors, she and I both love them - she wears the pink/purple/white one everyday and I often wear the blue/white/black one myself!  It is so soft and comfortable I sometimes forget I'm wearing it until someone comments on it!

Check out Give Bracelets for yourself and see all the wonderful styles available, you might be surprised as I was.  And now for the even more exciting part - a GIVEaway!  (yes, pun intended - lol)

This is A quote at the bottom of GIVE Jewelry's website - it happens to be one of my favorites!
