We often get asked which stores sell Relate bracelets so we compiled a list of our retail stockists and some information on the beneficiaries that they support.
In addition to raising funds for all these worthy causes the purchase of any Relate bracelet also provides funds towards earning and upskilling opportunities for our local bracelet-makers, as well as enterprise development initiatives in South Africa.
Remember to look out for our signature ‘R’ bead; our mark of absolute commitment to accountability and transparency – there’s one on every Relate bracelet. It is a symbol you can trust that guarantees that the bracelet you are wearing for change does just that.
