The Shine Project

When I first heard of Threads, I was not only excited about the adorbz jewelry that I had just laid my eyes on, but I also fell in love with the purpose behind the business!
They are a cause-driven business that changes the future of at risk youth. The youth come from various backgrounds, but all have one thing in common: they want to break the cycle. By Threads employing them, they are able to instill values of self reliance and hard work. The youth members are paid fair wages for the bracelets they make, and in turn are able to pay their way through school! This is just way too awesome to handle. Another neat thing? Many of Threads employees are first generation college students!
My little ole bracelet makes me smile real big. I'm pretty sure it matches my jewelry perfectly! If you wanna be my twinsie, then you can buy one HERE.
Best of all, they've offered my readers a 10% discount from their store! All you have to do is enter the promo code "texasmrs10"! Me personally? I want this one a lot lot lot! This is pretty cute too! And this!
So which item is your favorite from their website?

  1. What a unique business purpose! That's awesome! At first I was thinking Threads was a t-shirt company, but I realized I was thinking of "Threadless" tees.
