We often get asked where to buy individual Relate bracelets, so we’ve compiled a list of our partner retail stores along with some information on the wonderful beneficiaries that they support.*
In addition to raising funds for worthy causes the purchase of any Relate bracelet also provides funds towards creating jobs 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.
