The Global Genes Project - 7,000 Bracelets for Hope


 Today I shipped out my donation to the Global Genes Project.  I sent this denim sodalite bracelet, which will join the many others that artists and crafters have been donating since last year.  The GGP goal is to gather 7,000 blue bracelets by December 2011, to give to families of children with rare diseases.

According to the GGP website: "Rare Disease affects over 250 million people worldwide, and the largest percentage are children. There are over 7,000 rare diseases that have been identified all with very unique needs, but many with little to no support. In order to really help this community they need to be viewed as one, one community of millions, impacted by disease. Rare disease is not so rare, and the community is much more likely to garner the support, attention, and resources it needs if it is viewed as one."

If you're interested in participating in this project, get more information on the 7,000 Bracelets For Hope page.  We can each make a difference, no matter how small.  :-)
