Ruby Wow Designs Talk to Me Cuffs and Wraps
Ruby Wow Designs’s “talk to me” campaign is to know there is always one person you can reach out and talk to. The idea is that wearing this Talk to Me wrap or cuff is meant to open a conversation and if I can’t help you I will find someone who can help. Each bracelet has been individually stamped, punched and filed representing each person’s unique qualities they bring into this world. $10 from each purchase (or $5 for discounted student purchases) goes to Skylark Children, a Toronto-based charity dedicated to children, young people and their families struggling with complex mental health and developmental needs. ($25-$35 CDN)

($50 CDN)
