Obsession Du Jour 6.15.09

My accessory shot for the day.

If you want a great accessory for a great cause, here it is The Ubuntu Bracelet Campaign.

The Ubuntu Bracelet.
“Ubuntu” comes from the Xhosa word meaning “humanity towards others” and refers to a belief in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity — “DO unto others as you would have them DO unto you.” Through Do Act Now’s Ubuntu Bracelet Campaign, you can live this philosophy.

DO something. DO Dream Out Loud. DO donate. DO save a mother’s life. DO help a child. DO wear a bracelet.To make a difference now, DO Ubuntu.

Your orphan bracelet is handcrafted by local South African woman living with HIV/AIDS using (lead free) copper, brass and aluminum wire. Now matter how many you wear, your Orphan bracelets, will not set off airport security alarms. DO UbuntuDO wear them in the shower.
