The 100 Good Deeds Bracelet is both a fashion statement and a cause to encourage everyone to do a good deed. The designer of these bracelets, Mary Fisher, is an artist, author and HIV/AIDs activist, who has dedicated her life to working with women in developing countries. As the force behind the 100 Good Deeds Bracelet, Mary empowers women in Uganda, Zambia, South Africa, Rwanda, and Haiti, many infected with HIV, to help her make the 100 Good Deeds bracelet. Each bracelet is strung with 100 beads and is intended to be a continued reminder to do a good deed. Every time you go out of your way to perform a good deed, you move the bracelet’s rubber ring closer to the 100th bead.
My 1GD bracelet was made by Theresa Bwalya of Zambia. 1GD bracelets are “carefully hand-braided from a fine nylon thread using a lucet tool. the braided cord is then strung with 100 unique glass beads and a single rubber ring.” The bracelets come in a variety of beautiful colors. By purchasing/wearing the bracelet made by a vulnerable woman in Africa is my first good deed. It enables women to earn a dignified livelihood.
With each good, I will move the ring over one bead. When I’ve completed my first 100 good deeds, I will buy another bracelet and start over again.
