Giving Bracelets was started by Lesa Wallace, she wanted to find a way to continue donating money to her favorite charity.
When she heard about CASA for Children she was so moved by what CASA was all about.
Hearing the stories of so many neglected, abandoned and abused children needing support and mentoring.
In 2003 she had started a successful handbag company, her bags were sold in over 250 specialty boutiques and over the years the company accumulated lots of excess leather from the production of handbags.
She started making bracelets out the the leather scraps..
She wanted these bracelets to represent a greater purpose.
Each bracelet provides support, provides a mentor.
