7000 Bracelets For Hope

7000 Bracelets for Hope™

I thought this was such a great program worthy of my attention!  The below information has been copy and pasted from the actual site.  For more information click the link at the bottom of the page.
About the Program
Cause bracelets have been available for breast cancer and heart disease but there has never been a unifying symbol, color or bracelet that represents the rare and genetic disease community. That’s why we started the 7,000 Bracelets for Hope™ campaign.
Since launching the campaign in 2010, Global Genes has received thousands of unique blue themed bracelet designs made from everything from cut strips of recycled denim to vintage blue glass to turquoise stones. The creativity from our volunteers is truly inspiring!
Why 7000?
The number 7,000 represents the 7,000 different rare diseases that impact 1 in 10 people, 30 million Americans and 350 million globally. Each individual blue bracelet design we receive represents the uniqueness of one of the 7,000 rare diseases and many of our volunteers send in multiple copies of a single design.
Our goal is to continue to collect unique bracelets made by jewelry designers, artists, crafters, church groups, girl scout troops and other volunteers and distribute them to our families fighting rare and genetic diseases. Adults receive handcrafted bracelets made by our jewelry designers while children receive love friendship bracelets filled with hope.
How to Contribute Bracelets
It’s easy to show your support and make a difference for people suffering from rare and genetic diseases by participating in this rewarding charitable program. Meet some of our contributors and sign up to donate bracelets.
