Charity Bracelets That Are Actually Chic (And A Can’t Miss Party)

Even though October isn't even over yet, we're ready and eager to start thinking about all things holiday-related, especially how to help others during the season of giving. Know anybody who's been really good this year (including, er, yourself)? You'll want to hit up the Project Paz silent auction on Monday, November 7, where you can score one-of-a-kind designs from Yigal Azrouel, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Thakoon, Rag & Bone, and many more. That's right, the Project Paz organization—which promotes peace and funds community projects in one of the most dangerous cities in the world, Ciudad Juarez, Mexico—has supplied the designers with amazing textiles from Museo Textil De Oaxaca to make their outfits for the event. We know you're intrigued, so pick up your tickets here and rest easy that 100% of the proceeds will help this war-torn city. Need more arm-twisting on why you should come? See how much fun we had last year here.
Can't make it to the auction? Don't worry, you can still help out....and knock a few people off your shopping list at the same time. Jewelry designer Leighelena has made three chic leather bracelets just for Project Paz, and is donating 100% of the proceeds to benefit the cause. We guarantee you know more than a few people who would love to get these elegant little numbers for the holidays, so click away and get some shopping done early. Of course, you can make a donation at any time over at Project Paz's website. Sigh, giving back never gets old, does it?

When: Project Art Silent Auction, Monday, November 7, from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m.

Where: 82 Mercer Street (between Broadway and Greene Street); no phone ; get your tickets here.
