I took an art class in college where we turned pieces of paper into beautiful things. We made intricate paper airplanes, two-story houses and 3-d objects— all from paper. Yet never once did I come up with something as beautiful as these necklaces made from paper beads. These Ugandan women are incredible artists. I am a huge fan of 31 Bits— not only is their jewelry vibrant and beautiful, but their heart is in the right place. Watch this video to see how 31 Bits is revolutionizing the way people do business. They are transforming a community in Uganda and empowering women to rise above poverty and transform them from the inside out.
31 Bits has partnered with us to give away $100 worth of 31 Bits jewelry to one lucky winner. Keep reading on if you want a chance to win these incredible necklaces and bracelet in the picture below!
Why we love 31 Bits…
31 Bits is a company that rocks. It started when Kallie Dove, a college student traveled to Uganda in 2007. She was changed from the experience and wanted to find a way to help these Ugandan women who were living in poverty. The answer came through the paper beads these woman made into jewelry. Talk about some eco-love! The jewelry is beautiful, but the women behind 31 Bits are even more beautiful. Make sure to check out 31 Bits and learn more about their awesome mission.
