Proudly 100% not-for-profit, Relate Bracelets empowers and uplifts by helping the less fortunate create better lives for themselves – over 60% of their income goes to social upliftment and credible causes.
Proceeds from sales of the bracelets are invested into: giving township seniors dignity, companionship and earnings that most use to support their families and AIDS-orphaned grandchildren; giving disadvantaged youngsters earnings and skills training to enable them to achieve their life goals; and assisting disadvantaged fledgling organisations to grow to their potential, in turn creating economic and growth opportunities for others.
Additionally, Relate Bracelets have donated funds to over 70 causes to date.
Only Relate bracelets have their trademark ‘R’ bead, which is their commitment to transparency, accountability, and operating similarly to a public company, with financial statements summarised on their website.
Relate thanks all of those involved in their movement for change because many small actions, even just the purchase of a single bracelet for a specific cause close to a person’s heart, can lead to big change.
Neil Robinson, Chief Executive Officer of Relate Bracelets, asks: “What if every employed South African bought just one bracelet each year?”
“That would mean more than quarter of a billion Rand would go towards these causes annually, with this easy to do, small spend impacting on our country in a big way. It could result in a big dent in our country’s problems.”
Relate, founded by Lauren Gillis, became a Trust in 2010 and has since raised R30 million, having sold almost 2 million bracelets in support of more than 70 worthwhile causes in health, education, conservation, social upliftment, children, and empowerment. And in the process Relate has created earning opportunities for more than 350 people.
