Looking for the perfect holiday gift? How about a beautiful, meaningful, trendy bracelet that benefits a good cause? Wrap2gether.org is offering a line of leather wrap bracelets that top our holiday favorites list.
This picture fails to capture the full charm of the bracelet since most of the Swarovski crystals are on the top side of the bracelet. This view, highlighting the dwennimmen toggle, is the wrist side.
Wrap2gether bracelets are original, handmade, leather wrap bracelets, dotted with Swarovski crystals, and fastened together with a custom designed dwennimmen toggle, the African symbol of strength, humility wisdom and learning. Customers can choose between pink and blue crystals or blue and purple crystals or the bracelets can be customized. All profits benefit Mancona International School, Odumase-Krobo, Ghana and JustWorld International, a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization devoted to raising awareness and funds in the equestrian community for positive change in the developing world.. These bracelets can be ordered directly from Wrap2gether.org.

Wrap2gether Phonics Series
Knowledge in rural Africa is often passed from generation to generation through rote recitation rather than through the art of reading. Wrap2gether believes reading enables students to become self-reliant learners. With most education research indicating cultural respect empowers student learning, we sought culturally relevant early readers. Finding none, the founder of Wrap2gether wrote and illustrated a phonics series designed to highlight Ghana’s landscape. Although highly stylized, each page features children with smiling brown faces dressed in their adorable pink and blue uniforms, set amidst the familiar setting of their own schoolyard. In the background, a butterfly-filled tree and rising sun symbolize promise and hope. By respecting and validating the students’ own experiences, Wrap2gether hopes to motivate further learning and build cross-cultural trust.
