IHOPE Canada is a new company that has recently launched a line of colourful and interchangeable watches that support Canadian causes. Currently there are six different colour watches to support six different Canadian causes so you can show support for your favourite cause(s) by the colour of watch you select.
IHOPE watches are interchangeable so you can easily change the colour of strap depending on the cause you want to show support for (or even just to co-ordinate with that days outfit!)
Beyond being an awesome fashion statement, ten percent of the proceeds from each IHOPE product sold goes to charities and non-profit organizations to help support the cause.
Black represents the environment. Purchases of black products support environmental causes in Canada.
Blue represents Cancer. Proceeds go towards Cancer causes in Canada including The Canadian Cancer Society which is a national community-based organization of volunteers whose mission is the eradication of cancer and the enhancement of the quality of life of people living with cancer.
Green represents Urgent Causes. The purchase of green products we will contribute towards urgent relief and assistance causes in Canada.
Grey represents Education Causes. Proceeds go towards Classroom Connections which is an organization dedicated to improving learning opportunities, experiences and outcomes for Canadian youth.
Red is the colour of heart disease and stroke. The purchase of red products support The Heart & Stroke Foundation who’s mission is to create healthy lives free of heart disease and stroke.
White is the colour of hunger. The purchase of white products support Food Banks Canada which is the only national charitable organization representing and supporting the food bank community across Canada.
I was sent an IHOPE watch in red to check out for myself. These are meant to be unisex watches, but since I have oddly super slim wrists I just can’t pull the watch off. It is, however, perfect for my husband and looks great to tie together a casual outfit of jeans and a tee.
I think an IHOPE watch would be a great gift for the man in your life. I love giving gifts that give twice, and that is what these IHOPE watches do. You are able to gift a fun looking watch at a truly affordable price to someone you care about and support a Canadian cause at the same time. What more could you want in a gift?
Purchase your watch and support your cause online through IHOPE Canada directly. Frugal Mom Eh readers can use coupon code: FMESHIP to get free shipping for a limited time!

I love the look of these watches, and the idea behind them. I'm not a watch person, unfortunately.

Love that idea behind these watches. I am not sure it would look good on me but I will keep them in mind if I need a gift for someone.

I think that this is a wonderful idea, I too have slim wrists but maybe as a gift for someone. I'm thinking of the Blue one for my son.
