Make a difference for just £5 a bracelet
Connect Kids has sourced these unique bracelets to help you make a difference in the world. The bracelets are made by disadvantaged communities in South Africa. At least 1/3 of what you pay for the bracelets goes directly to the people who make them; 1/3 to the charity you choose to support; and 1/3 to buy the beads and to operating costs.
We have decided to start with these causes – there are many, many more, and more will be added to the website from time to time.
