Character Counts is a worldwide organization that provides children with a system to help develop good character. In addition to encouraging them to be the best, they can be. In particular, this educational program offers services and materials to increase ethical commitment, competence, and practice in all segments of society.

Recently, Character Count’s Creative Director, Tony Baer reached out to our CEO and Founder, Kay McDonald and together they crafted a fun and engaging line of GivingBands. Ultimately, they carry the message (and words) featured by Character Counts. The organization offers a program focusing on the six pillars of character. These pillars are Citizenship, Trustworthiness, Responsibility, Caring, Fairness, and Respect.

Word Beads

A custom charm bracelet is a great way of reminding children of what they are learning. With this in mind, each bracelet has an important word and symbol attached. Furthermore, they describe one of the character traits the children strive to live by.

Branding is of paramount importance for all organizations especially, non-profits. Character Counts uses fun graphics and bright colors to engage the children they serve. Likewise, Charity Charms’ brightly colored silicone GivingBands complemented these colors perfectly! After all, the combination made for the ideal custom charm bracelet.

To signify each pillar, Tony also selected popular symbols from the Charity Charms line. Not only did the charm symbols tie in with the pillars, but each features a small word charm. Ultimately, we used words that align with the pillars taught in the program. Additionally, each GivingBand contains a custom message card for each style. They reinforce the importance of the values associated with each GivingBand and charms.

Presently the colorful GivingBands are offered as a learning and reinforcement tool to all organizations that use the Character Counts’ program.

Charity Charms & Character Counts Working Together

Kay McDonald certainly found this equally important staying, “I enjoy meeting with clients directly when the opportunity arises. On a recent trip to Puerto Rico, I had the pleasure of meeting Character Count’s President, Jorge Diaz and delivering samples of products in person. I also had the opportunity to connect with Jorge about the myriad ways these products can be used for maximum impact. ”Multi Charm Packages, such as the one created for Character Counts are a popular and effective way for organizations to integrate Charity Charms into the organization’s fundraising and awareness initiatives.
