The cards I have seen at my local Chapters are bright and jolly, and they have a variety of cards to choose from and I think this card is the perfect way to spread some holiday cheer and give back. Not only during Christmas but throughout the year.
The thing I like best about this is that with my purchase of these cards I am also giving a child overseas pencils and that gives them the gift of education and opening up a whole new world of learning.
The recipients I send my cards and gifts to can track their impact with each card. The back of each card includes a unique eight-digit code that recipients can enter online at trackyourimpact.com to learn more about where their life-changing gift was delivered.
The other thing I am giving is the Rafiki Friend Chains. They can be worn as a necklace, bracelet, anklet or headband.
Each Rafiki Friend Chain you buy is handmade by a Maasai mama who earns a fair wage to send her children to school and helps you, the consumer, make a socially conscious fashion statement.
They come in five different colors, the Water Rafiki is a mixed blue which will give clean water for a year to a person, Health Rafiki is a mixed red, this will give health care to one child for a year, Education Rafiki is multi colored and this will give school supplies for a year to a child, Food Rafiki is mixed green and this will give a month of healthy meals to a child and Income Rafiki which is a multi colored black and white which gives sustainable financial tools to enpower women.
I know my local chapters only has the Water and Education Rafiki’s available and they are $10.00 but other locations might have different ones in stock. If not then you can always check the We to Me to order them.
Would this be something you would give?
I aplogize for the photos as I had to take them from the We To Me website since my computer is acting wonky and not letting me upload my camera.

What a wonderful idea! I haven’t been to Chapters in ages, but good to know that things like these are in their expanding market!
Thanks for participating!
What a great idea. I enjoyed your advent post. Have a Merry Christmas. kelley—the road goes ever ever on
This is a great post!! Thanks for sharing!
Love this idea!
What a cool idea! They’d make great stocking stuffers.
What a lovely idea! Thank you!
Here’s my Virtual Advent post!
I didn’t know about the necklaces or the cards. I like the necklace idea. I was just at Chapigo twice this week and I didn’t see these at all! This is a great idea and next time I’m back in the store, I’ll look for them specifically!
Cat-The one in Pointe Claire has put them in with the cards but before that they were near the cash. Its a great idea and I have bought several since then to put with gifts this year.
