Do Good, Get “Bangled”

Bangled (v.) [bang-guh ld] - The act of giving a BeadforLife bangle to a friend for doing a small act of good.

Colorado non-profit organization BeadforLife is committed to making a difference; whether a world away in Uganda or in their own backyard. The organization will launch a national campaign to inspire and engage ordinary citizens to “Do Good.” Small acts of doing good will be recognized with a free BeadforLife bangle bracelet and five more bracelets to pass along to others doing good, creating a grass roots movement.


“With so many recent tragedies affecting youth and families throughout the past couple years, we’re inviting people to call out the good in our world,” says Devin Hibbard, Executive Director and Co-founder of BeadforLife. “We receive so many heartwarming stories from people in America whose lives have changed because of BeadforLife and our poverty eradication projects in Uganda. We feel the momentum of that good connecting the continents and hitting us here in our own communities and around the world. We are excited to launch Do Good, Get Bangled as we have dreamed about this for years.” she says.

In Uganda, women who are working their way out of extreme poverty create BeadforLife Bangle Bracelets from recycled paper. Through BeadforLife’s program, they are able to earn income, start savings accounts, and uplift their families. Each

Maggie Wells, of Pinewood Springs (by way of New York City/Paris/Los Angeles), herself a poet, has turned the historic sandstone “dynamite building,” located in the empty lot between the St. Vrain Pharmacy and The Fork, into a tiny oasis in the middle of a gravel desert.

Wells, who grew up just south of LA, did her postgraduate studies at the New School in Manhattan, getting a degree in
