In celebration of #GIVINGTUESDAY I had to put the spotlight THE brand that is near and dear to my heart: Chavez for Charity. Chavez for Charity is a jewelry brand who creates bracelets and necklaces inspired by specific charitable organizations. Their beautiful bracelet collections are nothing short of spellbinding and, as you can see, perfect for holiday accessorizing. But the most magical aspect of these gems is that 25% of the profit from each bracelet purchased is given to 1 of 20 terrific charities that Chavez for Charity works with. AND in honor of Giving Tuesday, buy any 3 bracelets today, and get a 4th gifted to you for free, as a heartfelt thank you from C4C!
The bracelet selections you see above benefit a few select charities that are particularly important to me. The coral and brown bracelet collection benefits Best Friends Animal Society, the only nationwide animal welfare organization dedicated exclusively to ending the killings of dogs and cats in America’s animal shelters. The red bracelet collection benefits V-Day, the global activist movement to end violence against women and young girls. The pink bracelet collection benefits the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation that works to bring a public voice to breast cancer research with the goal of achieving a future without breast cancer. It is important remember that 813 women are diagnosed with breast cancer EVERY DAY. 
The green bracelet collection benefits the Whole Planet Foundation, a private non profit organization created by Whole Foods with the goal of of alleviating poverty through giving microcredits to communities in Latin America, Africa, and Asia who in turn provide Whole Foods Market stores with products to sell. The blue bracelet collection benefits Water.org, the global non profit organization that works to provide access to safe and sustainable drinking water in the developing world, giving these communities health, hope, and a real future. The black bracelet collection benefits Little Kids Rock, an organization dedicated to restoring revitalizing music education and programs in U.S. public schools. And finally, the gold bracelet collection benefits the Fisher House Foundation, an incredibly unique and special organization that aids military families by donating “comfort homes” that are built on the grounds of VA and major military hospitals worldwide. These homes allow family members of hospitalized service men and women to be close to their loved ones as they recover and/or are treated for unexpected illness, disease, or injury in combat.
I first fell in love with Chavez for Charity’s bracelets this October when I created my own stack of 5 white and gold skull bracelets (styled here in “Sweater Weather”) to benefit the Mathew Shepard Foundation, a organization founded by Mathew’s parents in honor of their son Mathew who was murdered in an anti-gay hate crime in Wyoming in October of 1998.  Through educational, outreach, and advocacy programs the Mathew Shepard Foundation seeks to “replace hate with understanding, compassion, and acceptance.”You can purchase a similar white skull set here.

So this season lets try to do the #unselfie thing and give a gift that not only gives back, but brings awareness to some of the incredible efforts being made to combat the issues we face as a society.
