Mantra Jewellery is working with the Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM), who are leading a movement against suicide, the single biggest killer of men under 45.
This men’s bracelet, in Leather and Stainless Steel, is pre-engraved with the simple word, ‘Strength’, representing the mantra, ‘I am strong not silent’. 25% of the selling price of each goes directly to support CALM’s work, and it is part of our ‘Mantra Changes Lives’ charity initiative.
Perfect as a gift for a mate going through a tough time | a loved one in need of support | or for yourself, to show your support for CALM’s work | Christmas gifts that gives back
The mythic appeal of the ‘strong silent type’ has been around for years, from John Wayne through to Gary Cooper. Men were admired who conveyed their resolve and power through deliberate silence. But silence is not a strength, but a weakness. Bravery comes in talking and engaging and sharing – not in staying silent.
CALM provides a hotline for men 365 days a year to break the silence and reach out for help, as well as running campaigns to change attitudes towards mental health struggles for men. They spread their message in universities, pubs, clubs and prisons across the country – so that people feel empowered to share their experiences and get the help they need before they reach the point of crisis.
Mantras are powerful words or phrases, designed to make a positive impact on the way that we feel. Repeating a mantra inspires and uplifts us; it reassures and comforts us; it motivates and energises us. Look down at your bracelet and say its mantra to yourself.
Made from plaited Leather and Stainless Steel, it comes in an adjustable size, with three settings. The Leather is woven and lies flat, to make it easy to wear and comfortable; and comes in Black or Navy. The adjustable clasp and engraved area are hard-wearing Stainless Steel, with a brushed effect to the engraved part, and a high polished finish on both sides to add a design detail.
The bracelets are £35 each, and come in Black or Blue, with 25% of the selling price donated to CALM (Registered Charity Number 1110621). Buy one here now.
