Good Work(s) Bracelet : I’m Lovin’ It

 

Good Work(s) Make a difference is fashion with a purpose. Every purchase you make, Good Work(s) donates 25% of net profits to help a person in need.

Good Works Bracelet at TidyMom.net

I got some really great gifts for Christmas this year and I can’t wait to share some of them with you over the next few weeks.

Back in October I went to Dallas for the I Heart Faces Conference and my good friend Amy picked me up from the airport.  After a quick hug, the first thing I noticed was the stylish and inspiring wrap bracelet she was wearing.

As soon as I got home, I had to look it up and was even MORE impressed by the company that makes the bracelet, Good Work(s) Make a Difference ®.

Created by momprenuer Helena Cho, each colorful bracelet is embossed with a number of uplifting and motivating phases such as “forgive,” “strength,” be aware,” “faith,” “freedom,” “accept diversity.”

But, here’s the best part…… Good Work(s) is a brand with a purpose ..…not only do these bracelets make you look and feel good, but, by purchasing one you are helping to do good!  25% of the net profits go to good causes.   By helping those in need, Good Work(s) is able to send girls to the prom who couldn’t afford their dresses and help children through college when their mom has passed away from breast cancer.  In 2012 Good Work(s) had a goal is to move 120 homeless families off the streets and into furnished homes in their “Home Sweeter Home for the Homeless” campaign.   As soon as I laid my eyes on my Amy’s bracelet, I knew I had to have one but after reading about this celebrity loved fashion, I wanted one even more.  So, I sent the link to the Silver Come Together Metallic Bracelet  to my daughter with the subject line “Santa gift”;)

I love mine so much, I would love to give 2 TidyMom readers the Happy Days Wrap Around Bracelet, winner can pick the color.

What an amazing and stylish way to start a new year and share your positive outlook on life!

    Thanks so much for the party Cheryl. I love those bracelets! The kids and I just took all of our old coats down to a coat drive – hope that counts! :)
    Hope you had a wonderful Christmas break and all the best for 2013!

    I don’t like to think of helping strangers as doing something good, but as doing something right. I live in NYC, where homelessness is still an issue, so whenever I see someone hungry, I give what I can. Just seems right.

    Today, I took my friend to lunch. We sat and talked long after the lunch crowd was gone. She just lost her dad, and her mom doesn’t have long to live. When we parted, she said, “Well, this was WAY better than therapy!!!” I didn’t think that I’d done anything — but just spending time together meant the world to her.

Thank you for the opportunity to win one of these bracelets.

    Thank you for sharing this post .. what a gorgeous bracelet and I will have to check their website since I never heard of them. I watched our friend’s little boy for about a week when the family had to stayed in the hospital for about 10 days to take care their daughter after a burnt accident. Glad to helped out and would do it again when another opportunity arises to help out friends.

    Had a horrible flight coming home from West Palm Beach to Newark. Flight was 8 hours delayed, hit major turbulence that we thought we were going to crash, and flight was re-directed as we were about to land in Newark to JFK. I had noticed an elderly woman sitting behind my husband she looked very tired and scared. I smiled a few times at her and when we landed I had asked her f she had a way of contacting her family. She used my cell phone and her daughter was very grateful. There was so much chaos since we had no idea if and when our plane would be able to get clearance to go to Newark. My kids and my self were to scared to fly any more for the day my husband arranged for the car service to come to JFK. In the mean time the elderly woman named Josephine was hungry,thirsty and very upset over the days events, I gave her the rest of my sandwich and offered her a ride to my house where her daughter picked her up and hugged us for taking care of her mom. Now we call her Grandma Josephine and we send cards and call each other. She even sent us flowers thank us. She calls me her Guardian Angel. I only did what any human being would do help another in need.

    I took my friend out for an afternoon away from the craziness around her home. Her husband lost his job and had been ill and in the hospital and now that he is home it has been a lot of care giving on her part…She needed a break. I made the day about her and not all the problems.

    I was leaving Walmart a few days ago and it was pretty chilly outside. There was a man sititng on the corner at the stop sign (not unusual for that area) and he had a sign that said he was homeless and needed food. I was on my way to the grocery store for something I forgot and decided to get him a cup of warm soup, some cornbread, and a bottle of water. (I also had $2 cash on me and I gave him that also in the bag.) I went back to the stop sign afterward and gave it to him. He was so grateful. I prayed for him on the way home (and cried most of the way). We are always donating to the less fortunate, but it really hit me to directly give to that man. I prayed that what I did for him, no matter what his situation, he would know that God loved him and hadn’t forgotten him.

    I know someone that has many struggles and is still so strong and positive. I sent her money to buy her Grandkids Christmas gifts and to pay her heating bill. She inspires me, she is so amazing. I do not think I could be so strong if given the same cihallenges she has faced.

    I ADORE these bracelets!! My neice had one a couple of summers ago and I tried to find one where she bought it but they were sold out!

    On a typical trip to the grocery store one Saturday, I noticed an elderly lady looking confused. I asked her if everything was alright and she indicated she had locked her keys in her car and couldn’t get ahold of her son who was at her home. I drove her to her house to get the keys and then back to the store to unlock her car. I learned a lot about her during that car ride and I felt so good the rest of the day… into the week… after helping her. I couldn’t help but wonder how many people walked past her before she was helped.

    This Christmas, a co-worker of mine and I were chatting. He’s a single dad and only has a part-time job. Money is tight for him. We were talking about decorating and he mentioned he wasn’t sure he’d be able to get a tree this year. And his 4 yr. old was pretty bummed that his day-care wasn’t going to have one either.
    So my co-workers and I and my husband bought him a tree, ornaments, a topper, lights, stand, tree skirt, and $20 giftcard so he could take his son and let his son pick out some ornaments.
    He was so grateful. My co-workers and I have decided to adopt someone in the community every Christmas, that can’t afford to decorate or get gifts!

    I’m a HS administrator, and one of our students had a baby over Thanksgiving. Recently, the baby had to go to the hospital with a fever, and the baby’s mom (our student), had to stay for several days alone with her sick baby. (Her mom (the baby’s grandmother) works two jobs and one is a night shift, so she couldn’t stay with her daughter and grandson.) I went and visited the student and took her dinner, some Christmas snack mix, and $3.00 in quarters for the snack machine. I think the most valuable thing I gave her was the time I spent with her just visiting and keeping her company.

    Love love love the bracelets!!! Thanks for the giveaway!

    These bracelets are so cool, I would normally not make a big deal of this but… my MIL had a procedure done at the hospital but ended up having a stroke and could not go back to her own home. We are caring for her at our house, giving her our bedroom because of the attached bathroom. Thankfully the Lord has been merciful and she had no paralysis but it did effect her balance, so she is walking with a walker. I homeschool my boys so I’m thankful she did not have to go to a nursing home to recover. We are all learning lessons in serving others and making sacrifices for others :) Thank you for the chance to win!

    I hope Good Works knows you exist after this post! Tks for sponsoring the giveaway yourself. Last year, I automatically donated part of my paycheck to two charities, specifically to help those in need get the furniture they need for their homes and also to fight hunger locally. Wish I could do more!

    I try to help whenever I can and see that someone needs it. I helped a lady with her groceries the other day. I donated warm winter items to the shelter and old blankets and towels to the animal shelter too. I don’t have a lot to give, but would rather share and donate when I can.
