Ways to Use Charms as Tools
One thing we love here at Charity Charms is seeing the unique ways organizations choose to use charms. There are so many special ways to use charms and charming products to help reinforce behaviors, become soldiers of support, or even teach a new skill. Charms are a fun way to unite your community in ways you may have never thought possible. That is one incredible thing about charms: they become whatever tool you want them to be. Over the years we have seen a lot of different uses, and today we are sharing ideas to get you brainstorming how you can use charms and tokens in your organization.
Charming Use: Awareness
The Homeless ID Project began over 35 years ago after Rev. Gerald Roseberry spent a month living among the homeless in Downtown Phoenix and Tucson. He took on this task so he could better understand the needs of the homeless population and how his church could better assist them. One thing he began to notice was the lack of personal documents with ones identity often left those experiencing homelessness from accessing services to help them. This lead Rev. Roseberry to fund the Ecumenical Chaplaincy for the Homeless which eventually became the Homeless ID Project. The Homeless ID Project assists those experiencing homelessness with regaining their identity and get the help they need.
How they Use Charms: The Homeless ID Project created a series of our popular Caring Cords as a tool for fundraising and a way to thank the volunteers at their Human Services Campus. Both of these ways allow volunteers and supporters to be reminded of the incredible work they are doing to improve the lives of others who are trying to regain their self-sufficiency.
Charming Use: Recovery

Charming Use: Education
The Dottie Rose Foundation is on a mission to connect the dots within technology and computer science to educate, support, and inspire the next generation. They envision closing the gender gap for females in the field of technology and computer science. They empower tech savvy girls through camps that offer hands-on experiential learning to develop the skill set they need to explore the areas of technology that excite them.
How They Use Charms: The Binary Bling Box is a set of beads that allows girls to go through Dottie Rose Foundation’s programs learning to write and understand Binary Code. Through the use of the kit, girls will learn how to write and understand the code while creating a bracelet representing something meaningful to them. The box features a selection of colorful beads, Binary Bling Box branding, and is presented in an organza bag. Our kits are put together by our incredible partners at Seeds for Autism.
Charming Use: Commemoration

Best Friends Animal Society knows just how important these purrfect furry friends are to our lives and that is why they are on a mission to Save them All.
