we're obsessed: relief beads
Baubles for a good cause.

, Jessica Biel was wearing bling of the beaded variety. Los Angeles based grassroots campaign Relief Beads
is making handmade African bracelets benefiting Relief International’s charity work for the crisis in Darfur. And Biel isn’t the only one with such a one-of-a-kind accessory. The likes of Mandy Moore, Patrick Dempsey, and the entire cast of High School Musical
have chipped in to reach the 250,000 bracelets sold goal. MEGHAN WILLIAMS
