True friends always watch your back to make sure it's clear of signs that say "Kick Me" or "Recite Your Breakup Poetry to Me." Keep your friends close with this Groupon: for $12, you get two magnetic friendship bracelets from Hook-Links (a $29.98 value). This deal does not include a $4 flat-rate cost for shipping.
Designed by three childhood friends, Hook-Links creatively display camaraderie and affection while building awareness and support for children's nonprofits. Rare earth magnets contained on both sides of the bracelet carry an opposing magnetic charge, allowing individuals to magnetically bind themselves to a friend, family member, or the floating appendage of a favorite ghost. The simple and stylish silicone bracelets arrive in one of five colors, including cool blue, hot pink, and hot purple. Buyers should carefully measure wrists to select the appropriate size, as Hook-Links cannot offer refunds for wrong sizes.
Boosting both fashion sense and a sense of community, Hook-Links donates a portion of the proceeds from each bracelet to three child-centric nonprofits. The student-run, philanthropic organization THON raises millions each year for pediatric cancer through the Penn State IFC/Panhellenic Dance Marathon. KIPP oversees charter schools for underprivileged children, and the Silverlake Conservatory of Music supplements music-education programs in needy areas. Hook-Links also collects votes for which nonprofit it will next partner with and solicits suggestions on which pairs should be magnetically bound together, such as peanut butter and jelly or green eggs and FDA recalls.
