You’ll get two bands with one purchase through the #TogetherBands website. You keep one of the bands and you share another band with a friend. Caitriona Balfe says that she’s shared her with Skelton and Rankin, and she wants to know who you’re sharing yours with and why.
The recent campaign isn’t just to raise awareness about cancer, either. It’s to help reduce maternal mortality, to help fight disease, and to improve the access to reproductive healthcare. After all, fighting cancer is much easier when someone can take preventative steps, and that often means getting access to good well-being and medical interventions that aren’t available around the world.
#TogetherBands is part of the Global Goals awareness campaign. The aim is to ensure everyone around the world can live a healthy life.
There are different colors depending on the goal you want to work towards. Caitriona Balfe and her co-stars were working towards Goal 3: Good Health and Well-Being.
You can help raise awareness and money to eradicate poverty and hunger. There are bands to help improve education around the world, gain gender equality, improve sanitation and clean water, and even gain affordable energy. There are others to support wildlife both on land and in the water. You’ll get a specific color for the goal you work towards.
All proceeds from the sale of the bands will go to Global Goals, helping to spread the word and fund the life-changing projects needed for everyone to get a better future. You can find out more about the campaign at the official website.
What’s even better is that all the bands are made from sustainable materials. They’re handmade in Nepal from plastic found in the ocean to remove it for the marine environments. The clasp is made from illegal firearms but turned into a ring pull. The idea is that the bands also generate sustainable employment.
