Simply Fab: Ileana Makri for OrphanAid Africa Bracelet

Before I go on about this Ileana Makri for OrphanAid Africa Bracelet ($640), I would like to call your attention to the reason it was created. Non-profit organization OrphanAid Africa supports orphans in Ghana and has been connected to fashion from its inception. Founder Lisa Lovatt-Smith was a former editor at Vogue magazine and designer Margherita Maccapani Missoni has given her full support by visiting Ghana and encouraging the fashion world to participate in the project.

Proceeds of this African-inspired bracelet, made of 18K gold and pavé diamonds, will help the aforementioned organization. It also comes in pink, with a single diamond ($240). If you're in the position to help, it's a worthy cause.

Spazzydana: No one is saying you have to buy his bracelet or be loaded to help out. You can probably donate any amount you like to the organization. I think the bracelet is ugly - I'd rather just donate that money without bothering to buy it. I don't have that type of money to give away (I admit that is because I'm selfish and buy too many clothes, snacks etc instead) but the bracelet is still a nice idea. It would be good if they had a $50 instead (made of different materials) - then a lot more people could afford it and show their support.

the bracelet itself is not all that great, but I would but it to help out the cause, if only I could afford it. that's my problem with a lot of charitable organizations and cause, they forget that most people in the world are not millionares - that's why the "LIVE FREE" bracelets did so well, because Lance Armstrong was smart and realized that...
