What is Bravelets’ mission?
Bravelets was founded in 2012 and the Bravelets mission is to help people be brave during hard times. It is such a simple idea that started with one bracelet, in 10 colors, helping 10 different non-profits. We have now grown to over 30 products in 16 colors, helping close to 4,000 personal causes and nonprofits around the country. There are times in all of our lives where we need to be brave – whether for ourselves, for our family, for our friends, or even for a complete stranger. Bravelets bracelets are more than just something to wear on your wrist. All Bravelets jewelry and accessories are symbols of hope, strength and courage. They are designed to help you be brave in the toughest of times.
How did Bravelets begin?
Stephanie started Bravelets in 2012 after her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer. She wanted something the whole family could wear as a symbol of hope. Something they could look at every day, and remember to be brave. She also wanted something that gave back to the cause she cared about, which is why with every item purchased from Bravelets 10% is donated back to the cause of the customer’s choice.
How Bravelets has made an impact for nonprofits?
We offer the ability for anyone to set up a fundraiser for anything they feel they need to be brave for! Many people set up fundraisers in support of their favorite nonprofit, or they set up a personal fundraiser to raise money for their medical bills or local causes in their community. To date, we’ve raised over $2.6 million dollars for various personal causes and non-profits. Aside from the financial impact, the personal connection we’ve made with non-profits and hearing the stories of the people their research and mission’s effects is even more rewarding.
Bravelets gives nonprofits the opportunity to raise money in a special way
Why Bravelets chose to donate to nonprofits?
Bravelets is unique, because we provide a platform for anyone to choose to give back to any cause they wish to support. If they are searching for a specific cause but can’t seem to find the right one, we give them the opportunity to create a quick fundraising page for that cause!
Why did Bravelets choose to work with The Salgi Esophageal Cancer Research Foundation?
April is Esophageal Cancer Month, and we think it’s great to partner with non-profits that specifically work towards research and awareness about that cause! The Salgi Esophageal Cancer is making strides to bring awareness about early detection and we are proud to help support them.
What are Bravelets goals and plans for the future?
Bravelets is on track to raise another $2 Million for causes around the nation! We are excited about the support we are able give people each and every day, and the donations that are going back into our communities. We always have new products rolling out, and new causes joining our mission! We are excited to see how Bravelets continues to impact people’s lives and outlook on life!
