These are very cool, good quality bracelets. I purchased a variety of these for myself, my daughters, and my best friend because I knew the money I spent was going directly to benefit the people of Nepal. We wear them everyday, which helps us remember to send our positive energies, thoughts, and prayers to Nepal. It also inspired me to begin offering a line of simple stretchy bracelets in my own shop, with all proceeds going to Mercy Corp for Nepal on a monthly basis. Do what you can and stand with the people of Nepal! And shop at the Dharmashop because they are truly awesome folks.
