Have you heard of 31 Bitsyet? They are an incredible brand that work with women in Uganda to rise above poverty. Women that are in the 31 Bits program learn english, finance lessons, aids & health education, and vocational training. It is incredible to see fashion have such a purpose that is beyond the surface level. Fashion fades, but these women and their families are forever impacted by the lessons they learn through this organization. 

I am in love with my orchid loop necklace, it is amazing how these talented women make the beads so they don’t even look like they are made out of paper! They take the paper bead to the next level. 31 Bits necklaces are going to be my go-to gift for the Christmas season coming up (yup, I just mentioned Christmas..get excited!)
