Steven Izen, the founder of Lokai, has released several bracelets with efforts of supporting organizations throughout the world. When one buys a Lokai bracelet, 10% of the net profits is dedicating to giving back to the community through various organizations and charitable alliances.
According to the Lokai website, he began this company after the diagnosis of his grandfather. This is when he created the first original Lokai bracelet, which was a clear tubular bracelet which held water from the highest point of Mount Everest, and mud from the Dead Sea. These represented both the highs and lows of his life. “I brought these two key elements together because life is full of circles. The rest of the beads are clear because we all have our own story to tell,” says Steven on his company website.
The original bracelet is available for purchase at any given time. However, the limited-edition bracelets are only available for a certain amount of time. In the past, Lokai has created different colored bracelets for several types of organizations. For example, Lokai had a pink bracelet during Breast Cancer Awareness month to raise money for breast cancer research. Another example, Lokai released a red bracelet in supports of raising money for “Save The Children,” an organization that supports relief of children in developing countries
Today, Lokai released their neon bracelet in conjunction with the Make-A-Wish Foundation. It is rainbow colored. They cost $18 and it will be available from April 11th through May 31st. According to their Instagram, Lokai will donate $1 to Make-A-Wish, with a minimum contribution of $300,000
