If you spend time at ONE’s U.S. office, you might think Alex and Ani bangles are part of the dress code. We’ve become a bit obsessed with them. Sporting Charity by Design bangles to support causes we care about has become one of our favorite fashion statements. We are thrilled to connect with Alex and Ani, a company that does so much to spread awareness and support important causes.
ONE is a campaigning and advocacy organization of more than 3 million people taking action to end extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa. Co-founded by Bono and strictly nonpartisan, we raise public awareness and work with political leaders to combat AIDS and preventable diseases, increase investments in agriculture and nutrition, and demand greater transparency in the fight against poverty.
Raising awareness is the first step in sparking change. And sometimes, a conversation is all you need to get started on the path of raising awareness. Each Charity by Design bangle is a potential conversation starter, and we love that Alex and Ani gives people a way to spark a conversation that matters.
The week of September 22, thousands of people will gather in New York City for Mashable’s Social Good Summit, the United Nations General Assembly and the Clinton Global Initiative. ONE will be among the change makers and advocates from around the world, dedicated to tackling some of the most pressing issues of our time. We’re guessing we might see more than a few people with Alex and Ani bangles on their wrists.
