Shine Project Giveaway

If I learned anything from my recent volunteer opportunity with Global Hope India through The Summit Church, it was that sometimes the seemingly littlest things can make a big difference.
We made bracelets for the children that are living in risky situations, and just thinking about the fact that the beads and thread that I'm touching will soon be held by a little boy or girl was particularly moving.
It may seem like just a bracelet, or just an hour of your time, but you can never underestimate what a great impact it may have.


Along those same lines, Ashley from The Shine Project, is giving a lot of time and effort into encouraging others to change the world. And it just may be as simple as one little bracelet. 


Threads project gives hope to at-risk youth. Each purchase aids in supporting them and helping them break the cycle.


Ashley says, "Threads is a cause driven business that changes the future of at risk youth. We employ them to make bracelets so they can pay their way through college. By purchasing Threads you are wearing more than just a bracelet, you are wearing change."


Not only are they more than just bracelets, but they are really cute.


They remind me of some necklaces that my sister and I have made. 

And since stacking bracelets is pretty trendy these days, these bracelets are sure to add some style to your arm! 

Would you like to win a $50 credit to Threads?
