Budget Fashion: 828 Movement Bracelet (plus Giveaway!)


One of the things that I will always be grateful for is to have finished my studies with the help of generous organizations and people. I had received financial assistances when I was during my elementary and high school days. And then I eventually got scholarships when I was in college when I studied BS in Computer Science (DOST and DLSU). Up to now, I'm still finding ways to pay that forward. First is by helping my siblings with their studies (I still have two siblings that are still studying), and then another is doing volunteer work/donations for organizations and charities here in Colorado. That is why when I was contacted about 828 Movement Bracelet and learned about their goal of supporting under-funded urban area schools, I immediately agree to take part of their campaign.

To give you a brief summary, 828 Movement is a non-profit organization that aim to spread positive images (past and present) and education equality by offering stylish accessories that you can wear to spread awareness. They name their organization 828 to honor the events that transpired on August 28, which are listed below:

August 281833: Slavery was abolished in the UK, which led to American abolition.
August 281955: Emmett Till was brutally murdered which was a catalyst to the 1960s Civil Rights Movement.
August 281963: Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his “I Have a Dream Speech".
August 282005: Hurricane Katrina landed in Louisiana and the delayed response for relief impacted mainly black communities.
August 282008: Barack Obama accepted the Democratic Nomination for President. 
I received the bracelet via Amazon this week (thanks again for sending this, 828 Movement Team!) and was happy with the packaging and the material of the bracelet itself. The band is made of rubber material with holes to help you adjust it according to your wrist size (which I really love!). The ends are held together by a metal shaped in U.

The Rings
Aside from the name itself, they actually designed the bracelet with rings that also symbolize what the movement is all about.  Below are the meanings behind the different rings that you see in the bracelet:

13 Copper Rings : Honoring the 13th Amendment - Abolishing slavery in the USA

1 Engraved Chrome Ring : Honoring August 28th - The date of several significant events in Black and American History

1 Chrome Ring : Honoring our unity to win the struggle in educational equality

Aside from the meaning behind the product, I actually love the bracelet as it is made of rubber and can be adjusted. For someone that has skinny wrist, wearing bracelets has always been my dilemma as they look awkward on me when I wear them. But as you can see in the photo above, the bracelet looks just fine given that I was able to adjust it using the holes and metal lock. And knowing that this accessory symbolizes and actually support/help fund schools is something that I will proudly wear!

Currently, 828 Movement Bracelet is available in 4 colors: black (the one I was sent), white, blue and red. Feel free to visit 828 Movement official website to see how they look. They are currently sold out right now but will be available again by May 6. They are also available in Amazon if you want to order from there, too. And please keep in mind that all of the proceeds from these products will go toward underfunded urban schools in America. It is definitely a great gift idea to your love ones and friends, too!
