Relate Bracelets has reached a major milestone of selling 1 million hand-beaded bracelets since registering as a trust in April 2010. This has resulted in close to R16 million being raised over three and a half years.

Aimed at changing lives, the proceeds from these one million Relate bracelets have gone towards investing in the earnings and upskilling of our bracelet-makers, enterprise development initiatives in South Africa, as well as donations to 52 worthy causes such as Ikamva Labantu, the Endangered Wildlife Trust and United Against Malaria. The bracelet proceeds have enabled Relate to create earnings opportunities for more than 250 people.

We have expanded our offering to be more accessible to you, our consumers, in order to sell another 1 million hand-beaded bracelets by the end of next year! With this in mind, we are launching our online shop on the 6th of December 2013, which is the one-stop-shop for buying Relate Bracelet stacks with a few simple clicks. To join our movement for change, please click here.

Our online shop allows you to choose the bracelet style you want, as well as the cause you’d like to support. After you have made your purchase, an impact card will be emailed to you informing exactly where your money has been donated and what it will achieve for your chosen beneficiary.

Relate bracelets are the perfect gift for your friends and family. At R350 for a stack of 10, they won’t break the bank. There are a number of different colours and designs to choose from, so you can wear the change you want to see with style this summer.

Wear your bracelets in a stack of 10 to make a statement, or share them with family and friends. Inspire them to also join the Relate movement for change.

You can contribute to helping us reach our next milestone of selling 1 million hand-beaded bracelets in the next year! The more bracelets we sell, the more lives we can change – the power is in your hands.

All Relate bracelets are adorned with our signature ‘R’ bead, which is our way of saying we are absolutely committed to accountability and transparency. It is the symbol you can trust as it guarantees that the bracelets you are wearing for change do just that. Simply put, if it doesn’t have our signature ‘R’ bead, it is not a Relate bracelet.
