So, what am I talking about? Well, my babe Kelly from The London Chatter blog has partnered up with a STUNNING jewellery brand; Auree to create a collection of beautiful, delicate bracelets that not only look amazing, BUT 100% (YES 100%) of profits are donated to 'For Rangers' and 'Tusk' two incredible charities that were set up to help protect the rangers and tackle the African Elephant poaching crisis.
So gal pals, now I've told you about the story behind the cause, I want to tell you exactly why I'm telling you about this today! Well, because the 12th of August is World Elephant Day (and we ALL love elephants, AMIRITE?!), what better time to share this incredible collaboration with you all? As soon as these stunning bracelets arrived I was straight out to shoot them and absolutely couldn't wait to share them with you all!
Now, I don't want to hit you all with hard up facts, BUT I do want to share some stats with you all about the crisis that absolutely shocked and upset me, which is why I instantly knew I needed to support this cause, I'm a firm believer of every little help makes a difference! In Africa, an elephant is killed for their ivory every 15 minutes. 15 MINUTES. I find that so hard to take in, with a species that is so precious and beautiful, is dying every 15 minutes JUST FOR THEIR TUSKS! And the rangers that are trying to protect them? Over 1,000 have died in their line of duty since 2003 which is heart breaking! I hope that you will join myself, Kelly and Amelia from Auree in supporting this cause that is SO incredibly close to everyone's hearts and worthy!
I personally treated myself to the rose gold one as it's absolutely beautiful, but I was saying to my best friend the other day that these bracelets would make a great gift, it's so nice to know that you've purchased something beautiful, but also something that's going to help towards a worthy cause! Especially if your loved one is an animal/elephant lover then this bracelet really is the ideal gift!
Now, I don't need to say this but I want to, when this email popped up in my inbox, my first thought was 'what a bloody wonderful cause', my second thought was 'damnnnnn those bracelets are fly' and my third thought? Well my third thought was of course I need to purchase one, I wanted to support both Kelly in raising funds for this incredible cause and I wanted to support both charities for their hard work. So from the off I want you guys to know that this post absolutely is not sponsored, nor was the bracelet gifted to me (although Kelly & Amelia VERY kindly sent me the silver bracelet as a thank you for my support which was so lovely - THANK YOU GIRLS! <3) - and I actually haven't taken both bracelets off since - I adore them.
Do you love these bracelets as much as I do? Will you be purchasing one for yourself or a friend? Let me know if you buy one too! 🙂
