Sweet Charity: Pura Vida Bracelets

One of my new favorite discoveries--handmade fashions from Pura Vida Bracelets offer more than just unique style ­– the bracelets represent a simple way of life that encourages wearers to enjoy the little things. Every Pura Vida bracelet is handcrafted by artisans in Costa Rica and supports the creative community there, something near and dear to my heart as I'm a firm believer in fashion for a genuine and honest purpose. In an effort to share the Pura Vida philosophy with others, Pura Vida Bracelets has partnered with more than 190 charities worldwide to support important causes. By purchasing a bracelet from the charity collection, you can support a cause you are passionate about. Below are just a few of the many great collaborations between Pura Vida and the charity world.

A portion of sales from the For the Oceans bracelet goes to support the Oceanic Preservation Society (OPS), an organization dedicated to sustainability efforts and preserving our oceans and planet.

For over 30 years, Best Friends Animal Society has been running the nation’s largest no-kill sanctuary for companion animals and building effective programs all across the country that reduce the number of animals entering shelters. 10% of net profits of this bracelet will be donated to Best Friends Animal Society

The mission of the American Heart Association is to build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. 10% of net profits of this bracelet will be donated to the American Heart Association

Soles4Souls is a nonprofit global social enterprise committed to fighting poverty through the collection and distribution of shoes and clothing. 10% of net profits of this bracelet will be donated to Soles4Souls.
