A teacher gift that gives back to teachers? I give it an A+!

Teacher gift idea: Beads for LearningI panic whenever it’s time for teacher gifts. How many apple mugs does one person need? Does she have food allergies? Will the collection of Starbucks gift cards send him spiraling into caffeine-induced madness?

But here’s one gift that’s beautiful, useful, and gives directly back to something dear to any teacher’s heart: other teachers.


We’re always excited about new offerings from the Leakey Collection, and we’re extra pleased to find these affordable and do-good-able Beads for Learning bracelets. Each one is handmade of Zulugrass remnants by Maasai artisans, which means that each 26″-inch wrapped bracelet is different and striking. 


But the best part is that 100% of profits go to paying teachers in Kenya. Purchasing five bracelets pays for one day of a teacher’s salary, and you also get one free. So that means that for $64.75, you get six bracelets and dozens of happy students and teachers on two continents. Money well spent. -Delilah
