HONOLULU (KHNL) -- Giving out Hawaiian bracelets is a tradition in many island families. A tradiiton some teens in foster care never get to be a part of.
But thanks to the owner of Royal Hawaiian Heritage Jewelry, dozens of local foster kids get a bracelet of their own.
They get to select the size and design. Then each bracelet is engraved for them.
"We thought it would be a great idea to give them a little something for Christmas, it's great to see a great smile," said jeweler Patrick Breeden. "These kids have gone through some tough times and we are just trying to bring a smile to their face."
The program is a partnership of the jewelry store and the Department of Human Services.
Kokua Ohana, a Native Hawaiian foster family support group, also teamed up to make their priceless presents possible.
