Wish upon a Brazilet



Images from Brazilets Website
I came across these really cute little ribbon bracelets called Brazilets
They are from Brazil and are kinda like wish bracelets
You tie them in three knots when you put them on and for every knot you make a wish and when your brazilet finally falls off all your wishes will come true!
I think that is such a lovely idea and seemingly they are like a 200 year old tradition in Brazil
Also for every two bracelets sold in Europe the company will plant a tree in Brazil's Rain forest
So as well as being pretty they are also helping a great cause!
I really want to get myself a couple
They are only £5 so they are a bargain too
Have any of yous got some?
Have your wishes came true yet?

What a great idea! It reminds me of friendship bracelets, but the idea behind this is so much better and I love the fact that they're sold for a good cause as well. Thanks for posting this!
