Cause of the Day: Pura Vida Bracelets, Arm candy for all

September 04, 2014


I always thought the beachy-Bohemian layered bracelet look was only for surfer girls and beach bums but most recently, I’ve discovered I can make it work! I had seen Pura Vida Bracelets in boutique stores and through my favorite online marketplace Enrou, but I decided to give in and order a bunch for the Fall House of G&C photoshoot. A few days later I received my order and even a few weeks later, I’m still super stoked about all of my Pura Vida charity bracelets. My favorites include: 1Love Braided, LGBT Pride Awareness Platinum, HoneyLove, and my Typhoon Haiyan Relief bracelet. All charity bracelets range from $5-$15 each or you can purchase style packs for $30 and up.

More about Pura Vida: The company started out with two friends Griffin Thall and Paul Goodman, who were on a college graduation trip going from from San Diego to Costa Rica. They met two local artists, Jorge and Joaquin, who made handmade bracelets to support themselves and their families. Upon returning to San Diego, Thall and Goodman put the bracelets they bought into a local boutique and they sold out immediately. Looking to find a way to help make a difference, the guys put together a plan to work with Jorge and Joaquin to help grow their business and to help them both become more financially independent.  Today both Jorge and Joaquin own their own homes and work with an entire team of artisans producing over 20,000 bracelets a week.
The Pura Vida Charity bracelet collection started in 2013 and has since donated over $140,000 to 190+ charity organizations. For more info, or to shop, visit:
