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!

    I love these precious gifts. I purchase coffee at Starbucks and pay it forward by buying coffee for the person behind me. I am also sending 10 gifts randomly this year to people who sent me their address on Facebook. If I win I will pay it forward and send a bracelet to one of those 10 people.

    I recently started a part time job. The other asst. manager was supposed to work Christmas Eve and close the store. I traded with him because his family is 3 hours away and mine is a whopping 3 minutes from the store. That way we all got to spend time with our families.

    We “adopted” a family from our church at Christmas time and got gifts for their 4 kids….it was fun to shop for them and a great lesson on giving to teach our kids! :)

    Hello,

    Although I love to do things for others, I have been told that if I had the money to give to everyone I would like to help I would be broke. But, in reality I would be rich because my heart would be so full of love. I work for a children’s hospital foundation, and I know why I come to work everyday. The sick kids help me keep in perspective how lucky I really am to have a healthy child.

    I have tried to pass on the importance to my child of why we need to donate our time. I can’t teach my child the importance of volunteering, but getting them involved in the community will. My daughter has volunteered her last three summers to the hospital, for nothing in return but a thank you. I am really proud of her, and she has come to the conclusion that she wants to be a nurse at this particular hospital.

    I would love for her to be able to have one of your lovely bracelets, so I am hopeful she will win. Thank you and god bless you and yours!

    Angie

    My good friend is trying to get over an unexpected breakup. I am trying to be the kind of friend I would want if I were going through the same thing. I just try to listen as she works through the heart break. It’s difficult to see her so sad.

    My boss didn’t get to be with her kids on Christmas Eve or Christmas day, so I worked for her for three days so that she could go get them and have a wonderful Christmas during New years:) She was so grateful that I would give up my holiday for her and her kids. We have a great work relationship and team work matters to me, whether it’s personal or not, and I try to treat people the way I would want to be treated!

    I picked up the tab when a young man in front of me realized he had forgotten his wallet and was buying coffees for himself and what appeared to be a date. Rather than let him squirm and have her pay, I picked it up for them.

    Those bracelets are beautiful! I love the silver. Gosh, I feel like I’m bragging… I don’t normally talk about thing I do for other people lol. Makes me feel weird. But when our cousins had their little girl in December, I cooked some dishes and we packed a cooler of food and took it to them when we went to visit them :) I think that counts :)

    Just last month I made a big batch of cookies and once my daughter woke up, we went mailbox to mailbox delivering a cookie surprise for all our neighbors. We also left a bag of cookies in our own mailbox for our mail person to enjoy as a treat! My daughter is only 1 1/2 years old but I hope the things we do together will teach her to be a good, kind, sharing human on this earth.

    It feels strange to be tooting my own horn and not someone elses! Something I’ve done for someone else… my friend was hosting a Christmas Tea and I took care of things in the kitchen so she could enjoy tea with her guests. ♥

    I make goodie boxes for family & friends at the holidays and I’ve started making mini boxes to give out to some employees at the different stores that I am a merchandiser in. We also give a lot to our local Boy Scouts organization and make sure that our boys follow what they have learned in Scouts. The 3 days that they’ve had to shovel our driveway we’ve also made sure they go do a couple of elderly neighbors drives & sidewalks also. These bracelets are beautiful, thank you for the chance to win one.

    A couple of weeks ago, a coworker of mine was stranded at her home because of a car that wouldn’t start, and she had to get to the office to give an important presentation. Our efforts to jump the car were fruitless, so we piled her daughters into my car and I chauffered them to daycare and her to the office. It was a long morning, but worth it–her girls are so sweet!

    Not having children, but seeing so many posts on Facebook from friends with kids that they would like a day or two to themselves to get things done, I offered to have friends drop off their young kids at our home on days I’m available. I’ve had so much fun crafting, dressing up, storytelling, and playing with the kids these past couple of months, and I love the look on mom’s face when she comes to pick them up.

    A former coworker of mine just found out her husband has stage 4 colorectal cancer and was trying to do some research on a juicing machine to help him since he is having difficulty eating. I had a juicer that I wasn’t using so I gave it to her – I feel so helpless that there is nothing more I can do for them….this was just a small thing that made her happy and made me feel good to help out. She will be spending enough money over the next months….the last thing she needed was to shell out more funds when I had a perfectly good appliance that I wasn’t using.

    We believe doing “good” is really doing what God comands us to do…kindness, thanking someone (verbally or written) sharing what we have, etc. Holding the door for an elderly person, paying for a young family at a restaurant, lifting someone up in prayer. We just need to be more aware of our surroundings…there are lots of needs and ways to be kind on a daily basis and they certainly don’t have to cost anything!! Do something today!

    I made memorial luminarias for all the angels who went to heaven in the Sandy Hook Tragedy. I wrote each persons name on the bag and put tea light candles in them. I light them at night in memory of all the angels. I decorated the bags with glitter stars! They look really pretty at night! God Bless them all!

    A man came into my work over the holidays and seemed very sad. I asked him what his plans were for Thanksgiving. He said his wife had passed away so he was going to help out at the hospital during the day and then eat in the cafeteria. I felt so sad, so I invited him to join my kids and I for Thanksgiving. It really made his day.
