31 Bits


Has anyone other than me ever wondered why February only has 28 (or in cases such as this year 29) when there are some months that have 31 days and others with 30?

I mean – why not just even out the 31 day months with the 30 day months and give February a few extra days?

      I’m sure there is a perfectly logical reason as to why this isn’t done.

      But am I going to research it?

      Probably not.

      Why?

If I have thought that much into it to ask you and to bring it up, why not just check it out?

It would probably only take a few minutes to get an answer on the good ol’ google machine!

Here’s my answer – because it’s so much more fun shopping!

And when I’m shopping I am finding out about the companies that I tell you about and learning great things about them!

You know that I always try to have some sort of tie in with my little stories and the companies that I feature – so why should tonight be any different?

It’s not!

Numbers…how do numbers tie in? Specifically the number 31…

How about this – 31 Bits? http://31bits.com/shop/

 
I really, really like the accessories that 31 Bits sells.
31 Bits 

They are super cute and could go with so many outfits!

If only I were independently wealthy and could buy all of the things that I like from everything I tell you about!

My closet would look like something the Kardashians might have!

But back to someone who does a lot more than the Kardashian clan does – well, maybe – there was that one episode where they helped the homeless man. J (Okay – busted, yes, it is my guilty pleasure. And yes, I know that they have a lot of haters out there, but they entertain me.)







So anyway – “31 Bits is a business using fashion and design to empower women to rise above poverty. We believe that business is one of the most powerful and sustainable approaches to turning scarcity into abundance, and eventually, alleviating poverty completely.”

“We are currently working with 108 women in Gulu, Uganda. We’ve combined successful development approaches with current design and fashion to create an innovative program for our women. We purchase jewelry from each woman on a monthly basis, providing them with an immediate, consistent, and fair income. Each piece of jewelry is handmade using 100% recycled paper and other local materials. By selling these products in the international market, we are able to generate a profit that is used to continue purchasing jewelry for our beneficiaries, as well provide them with numerous development programs, equipping them to develop a career and attain social equity on a local level.”

Not only does 31 Bits purchase jewelry from the women, but they also offer the following:
