At Mexicali Blues, we’re world travelers who want to do good things in this world. So it’s no surprise that our #GivingTuesday contributions are traveling, too—all the way to the remote villages in the Guatemalan Highlands to help our good friends at the Guatemalan Housing Alliance (GHA) build safe, secure, sustainable homes and provide schooling for hardworking families living in severe poverty.
One of GHA’s most empowering programs teaches women in the villages how to bead beautiful bracelets. This allows the women to work from home while continuing to care for their families. In a world where a very hard day’s work in the fields earns only $3, the proceeds from these beautiful bracelets really makes a difference.
When you purchase those bracelets from Mexicali Blues, they make an even BIGGER difference! We send 100% of the proceeds from our Guatemalan beaded bracelets right back to the communities that created them. When you buy a bracelet on #GivingTuesday, you support GHA as it builds the homes and schools these villages need to thrive.
The gorgeous, glimmering wave design woven into these bracelets was inspired by the waters of Lago de Atitlán and reminds us how small gestures can ripple outward to make a big statement of support. Pick out your favorite beaded bracelet this #GivingTuesday to make yours!
