Poverty. Homelessness. Domestic Violence
In these situations, it’s about survival and choices.
Stay or go? Food or shelter?
I know. I have been there. I have had to make some hard choices. And with each hard choice came consequences.
It is these choices that I don’t want anyone else in a vulnerable position to have to make and I know you don’t either –a mother shouldn’t have to choose to buy a loaf of bread or sanitary products for her daughter, to feed many hungry mouths or a roof over their head.
This is where The Hope Initiative fits in.
If you and The Hope Initiative can take one thing out of their equation so that the person in need has one less choice to make, then we have helped.
Each bracelet represents humanity. It is designed to inspire you to continually do good for humanity, the very reason we are here. The quotes are powerful reminders to keep going, you can do this, we all have bad days and need a little help just like those vulnerable in our society.
I have hit rock bottom, several times and never want to experience it again.
The Hope Initiative is something big for me. It puts a jump in my step, and I want that for you too. I want you to feel you are making a difference by reducing the number of hard choices in the life of someone in need.
Hope Initiative is a beacon of light for those in need, and the inspiration for those that can help and make a difference.
Much love and kindness,

When buying a full bangle I am sure you are wondering what size will be best! Here are two sure fire ways of getting it right every time.
Option 1 - Find a bangle you already own and measure the inside area
Option 2 - Touch your pinky finger to your thumb and measure the distance between the outside thumb knuckle and the outside of the pinky knuckle.
These measurement will give you a size indication.

Our 18k Rose Gold and 14k Yellow Gold-plated bangles are simply gorgeous, but delicate. Taking extra care for them is a must if you want to prevent any of the rose/yellow gold tarnishing, fading out or being worn away.
Make your Rose/Yellow Gold-plated bangles stay sparkly, shiny and keep their luster! Remember these few things you need to AVOID.
Do not use perfume, lotions, hairspray or other sprays while wearing your rose/yellow gold-plated jewellery. This is one of the main causes of tarnishing. If you are going to wear your bangles, you need to skip putting perfume on your wrist. The chemicals in perfume can react with the rose gold and cause it to tarnish. When you do your hair, don’t forget to wash your hands and wrists before popping those rose/yellow gold bangles on. Just keep in mind that chemicals and rose/yellow gold-plated bangles simply do not mix!
If you’re using lotion, wait a little while before wearing your bangles, make sure the lotion is fully absorbed by your skin before putting your bangles on. Remember that the quality of the plating will deteriorate if it’s exposed to too much moisture.
Chlorinated, salt or freshwater must always be avoided. Water can cause it to disintegrate or wear off. Make sure to take your rose gold/yellow gold bangle off before taking a shower or bath and most especially when you’re going swimming. This is also true for sweat, when you exercise or do anything that will make you sweat heavily, do not wear your bangle. Remember: swimming, showering, bathing and exercising are not a good match for your bangle!
Please do not use a silver cloth, baking soda, or any other chemicals to clean rose/yellow gold plated jewellery.
Avoid storing rose-gold and yellow-gold bangles together. It might cause each other to tarnish, fade and/or turn colors. It is better to have different storage places for different colors of jewelleries or just simply remember to store them not so close to each other. Store in a dry area.
Our bangles are delicate, and they need your tender loving care! Unfortunately, anything plated will eventually tarnish with time and wear, but you can maximize their lifespan by following the things to avoid mentioned above.
Caring for Stainless-Steel Silver
Our stainless-steel silver are as tough as nails and won't tarnish or rust. Yes, it can get scratched but no worries! Your local jeweller should be able to polish them out for you or you can also polish them yourself by simply using a silver polishing cloth.
You can avoid scratches, by wrapping your jewellery in a soft cloth after cleaning or keep it in a jewellery box separate from other types of jewellery you have.
When cleaning your silver bangle, it is recommended to use a lint free cloth dipped in warm soapy (mild dishwashing liquid is fine) water to wipe the bangle clean. Use your silver polishing cloth to dry and polish the silver bangle.
