Flash Post: Clear Choice


What It Is: I love a good gift that gives good to the world – and this limited-edition Me to We Rafiki bracelet is just the token. Handmade in Kenya, the purchase of just one of these pretty wrap bracelets can provide someone with clean drinking and washing water for an entire year. Profits from the bracelet’s sale go toward Free The Children’s goal of providing 100,000 people with clear water, making this both a fashionable and fundraising accessory.

Who It’s For: Your boss, as a do-gooder gift that’s also super affordable. Your Secret Santa, since it’s like giving two gifts in one. Your wife, as a sweet stocking stuffer with some extra thought behind it.

What It Costs: $10!

Where It’s At: The Me to We Rafiki bracelet is available exclusively at Second Cup locations across Canada. To find your nearest location, visit their website.

I should also mention, the Me to We bracelet is also available on the Canadian Gift Guide, to one very lucky (and hopefully kind-hearted) soul. Wear yours with pride and spread the word about this great cause. To enter for your own Me to We bracelet:

1) Visit the Free the Children website and tell me one thing you learned about their Clean Water initiatives in the comments below. You’ve got until November 29th!

2) Entries are limited to one per person / per email address / per household (or more if you score bonus entries). A random draw will be conducted on or around November 30th to select the winner, who will have 48 hours to respond before another winner is chosen in their place.

3) Entries are limited to Canadians that have reached the age of majority in their province. Quebec is not eligible to participate in this promotion.

4) Bonus Entry: Tweet about this fantastic gift idea up to five times over the contest period. Be sure to tag me (@cdngiftguide) in your Tweet and leave links back to your Tweets in the comments below.
