Thursday Things: Giving Back - Amazing Gift Sets from FACE Stockholm and Same Sky

This is one of the most beautiful gift ideas I’ve seen this season. FACE Stockholm has partnered with Same Sky to offer these limited edition sets. Truly wonderful…

A Gift That GIVES from FACE Stockholm and Same Sky

Just in time for the holiday season, FACE Stockholm and Same Sky present a limited edition holiday gift set featuring signature hand blown glass-beaded bracelets made by women artisans in Rwanda and beauty products.

Available Saturday, November 6, 2010 at exclusively FACE Stockholm.

Same Sky is a trade-not-aid jewelry initiative aimed at empowering women worldwide and exemplifies the growing ethical shopping trend. Same Sky's glass-beaded bracelets are hand-crocheted by HIV-positive women artisans who survived the Rwandan genocide of 1994, and are working to overcome the traumatic aftereffects of rape and unimaginable violence. Same Sky's women artisans are taught a marketable skill and earn a wage that is 15-times higher than found in Sub-Saharan Africa – giving them a hand-up instead of a handout. 100% of all net-profits from the sale of Same Sky bracelets go directly to training and hiring more women artisans and expanding into other regions.

FACE Stockholm-Same Sky Holiday Gift Sets can be purchased from November 6, 2010 at all FACE Stockholm stores in New York, online at or by calling (888) 334-FACE.

Each FACE Stockholm-Same Sky Holiday Gift Set sold helps lift one more life out of poverty and is truly a gift that gives back.

Same Sky bracelets are made of hand blown glass beads, (165-180, depending on size). Each bracelet is crocheted by hand on a complimentary colored, non-stretch cord. Sizes include Small (fits wrists 6.0" – 7.0") and Medium (fits wrists 7.0" - 8.0").
