Good Works bracelets available on the Q!

Good Works makes beautiful wrap around bracelets with embossed with inspirational words and settings. This year the Q is offering the most simple version at a fantastic price (2/25.00) in great colors. I bought a few sets for gifts and they're hip, cool and 25% of Good Works profits go to charity.

Good Works also makes different versions of these bracelet including one with crystals (which is what I have--bought mine at Kitson here in LA).

Just an idea if you are looking for a girlfriend gift!

Thanks for posting about this, Gardensia. These are really different. I like these a lot. Are they debossed or are the words just printed on? I would still like it if they are printed on though; they are really cool. Great price too! Thanks!

Mine is embossed (letter stamped into the leather) but others in the line seem to have the letters stamped on without embossing. I guess it depends on which style you get.

Cool, huh?

gardensla,

I feel the exact same way as you do about these bracelets.{#emotions_dlg.thumbup}

I posted a review on the Dooney Forum, cannot believe the price of these on QVC{#emotions_dlg.w00t}

A word of caution about items that are sold to benefit charities. (And I haven't looked at the information about these bracelets, so I don't know whether they have told us what I am going to discuss.) Do you know which charities receive the money? Do you know whether they use the money wisely, or whether they have super-high administrative costs? This kind of information possibly can be found on the Charity Navigator website. If that doesn't help, try a general online search.

Inspirational words and settings, as mentioned by the Original Poster, are the emotional appeal. That's fine, but we also should be practical and make informed decisions.

Here's some information on the Good Works website in case you are interested.

My daughter received a crystal one in white leather as a gift last year. I personally loved it myself. I noticed she only wore it maybe twice and went to take it for myself (w/her permission) and it had gotten "dirty" looking. Not sure why, since it was barely worn and kept in a jewelry box. Just FYI on the white or lighter colors, it could have been an isolated incident.

I really love the ones w/the crystals, wish QVC would bring those in, as well. May order it from another site.
