'Choose Haiti' is an initiative that helps those who are still struggling after the devastating earthquake that tore through Haiti earlier this year. Embracing the merchandise route of raising funds, the organization recycles newspapers to create $5 bracelets for the cause.

Backed by such celebrities as Rachel Bilson, Patricia Arquette and heavy-hitter Bill Clinton, Choose Haiti will surely make a difference. The bracelets are currently selling at Forever 21, Footlocker, Anna’s Linens, QVC, and Beyond the Rack. Stats for Recycled Charity Bracelets Trending: Older & Mild
