The fact that many women and young girls around the world are still denied the basic right to an education is not one that sits well with me… at all. It’s a major problem that no one person can fix. Until recently, I felt utterly useless with regards to this situation – “what can I actually do that will make any difference?” I questioned myself time and time again. But then I got an email, highlighting an opportunity to make a small difference and contribute in a tangible way. Here’s an excerpt from this email:
We recently stumbled upon your Instagram page and we love it!
We’re from the company *She Believed She Could Bangle* and we were wondering if you’d be interested in collaborating with us and join us in the cause to support equal education opportunities for young girls and women in third world countries! We’d like to send over our new product for you to try out and post pics/vids with. You can find out more about it via this link:
Now, I’m under no illusion that this blog is going to change the world. However, when I heard that $5 from each sale would be donated to charity, I knew it was something I wanted to do my best to promote.
I received my bracelet and will be making a personal contribution at the end of the month, when all of my invoices are processed. Today I’m urging you to join me in a cause that supports equal education opportunities for young girls in developing countries by purchasing your very own She Believed She Could So She Did bracelet.
The bracelets come in plated silver or gold and are incredibly dainty and delicate to look at, yet impressively substantial and equally empowering to wear. Annoyingly I’m having to get mine professionally adjusted to fit my super-slim wrist (jewellery never fits my arms or hands, especially rings). I can’t wait to be able to flaunt it properly though, as the little hand-stamped quote is bound to catch the eye of many! It’s such a positive bangle and so much more classy than a branded rubber band. It also reminds me of my goals and just how capable and resilient I am.
So please, if you like the look of this bracelet and love what it stands for, buy one. If you can’t for whatever reason afford it right now, please still show your support by following @shebelievedbangle and @amarmgandhi. And if you have got any insight or inspiration as to how I can help more, kindly provide your suggestions and share your experiences using the comments section below.
