Social change, shiny things that tell time: these are a few of our favorite things, and thanks to the folks at Modify Watches, they now go hand-in-hand. Modify, a retailer of snappy, modular timepieces that you can mix-and-match to your heart's content, is spending the month of June supporting WonderRoot, one of the finest arts organizations to rear its head in ATL. And all's you have to do to help is toss the old plastic ticker you pawed out of a Cracker Jack box and upgrade your wrist into the 21st century.
With each $30 sale of the "Together" watch from Modify, $20 will go straight to WonderRoot to help fund their efforts in supporting community artists and addressing social justice issues. Long have we extolled the virtues of the local nonprofit wunderkind and their do-gooder efforts in lighting a fire under Atlanta's collective hindquarters toward social change. The organization has some big things in the works for Atlanta, so a little extra cash for WonderRoot really means a little extra awesome for our very own city. A swell new wristwatch and a bettered city? Neat! Everybody wins.
And anyway, great-uncle Hiram's creaky old pocketwatch is getting a little long in the tooth. A nifty timepiece from Modify is just the thing your wrist needs. If you need any further convincing? You can get it with a glow-in-the-dark band if you want.
