Things We Love – Zulugrass Jewelry Review and Giveaway {Contest Closed}



Congratulations to Natalia, who won our ZuluGrass Beads of Learning Bracelet. Stay tuned for more Giveaways!

Here’s the story behind Zulugrass Jewelry – and why we love it.

First some background on The Maasai people in Kenya, who handcraft each piece of Zulugrass Jewelry.

The Maasai are a nomadic, pastoral tribe centered in Eastern Africa. For centuries, the majority of a Maasai family income has derived from herding cattle.

After a terrible drought devastated pasture lands, the men of the Maasai were forced to drive the few surviving cattle hundreds of miles north in search of better grazing land – leaving many of the women and children behind.

Philip and Katy Leakey – who live among the Maasai in Kenya – came up with an ingenious idea to help in a way that utilized the skills of the Maasai women while also making use of the area’s sustainable natural resources.

First, they dried and cut the long grasses in the region. These grasses are then dyed rich hues and strung on super-strength elastic. Czech glass beads are added for sparkle and a little contemporary flair. Then the pieces are sold, individually or in multi strand pieces, as Zulugrass Jewelry.

Zulugrass jewelry is lightweight, durable and versatile. The elastic, which is the same that was invented for the movie Spiderman, is said to hold its shape for over six years, even if worn daily in the sun, shower, pool or ocean. This durability means you can wear the colorful strands as a necklace, anklet, bracelet, hair tie, or choker.

The best part is this: The Leakey Collection now offers employment opportunities to more than 1400 Kenyans. The Maasai women work in the shade of acacia trees using mobile work stations.

The products they make – the items in The Leakey Collection – are now available in more than 1200 stores nationwide or online at http://www.leakeycollection.com

The Leakey Collection has given us a Zulugrass Beads of Learning Bracelet to give away to a lucky Momscape winner.

Every Zulugrass Beads for Learning Bracelet has been designed by Maasai artisans to symbolize the bright futures of educated children. The Leakey Collection donates 100% of its profits from the sales of these bracelets to pay for local teachers’ salaries.

Download a free anti bullying ebook (this week only)

As kids head back to school, parents and children may find themselves dealing – once again – with bullying and peer abuse at school.

This week only, the book Please Stop Laughing at Me (referred to by many as “the anti-bullying bible) is available as a free ebook.

Please Stop Laughing at Me, by New York Times bestselling author and bullying survivor-turned-activist Jodee Blanco, is an unflinching, unforgettable memoir that does more than simply chronicle how one child was shunned—and even physically abused—by her classmates from elementary school through high school. It reveals the devastating effects bullying has not only on its victims, but also on the students, schools, and communities in which it occurs— effects that can last a lifetime.

Additionally, Jodee Blanco has sparked a grassroots movement inside America’s schools—as she travels nationwide to help kids, parents, and teachers alike cope with bullying.

The free ebook is available from these online retailers through the links below:
Barnes & Noble
(Offer valid this week only.)

You can also order a print copy of the book from Amazon:

Please Stop Laughing at Me.: One Woman's Inspirational Story
