7000 Bracelets for Hope... Hop!



Though the diseases themselves may be rare, the simple fact remains that there are over 350 million people affected by rare diseases worldwide. Think about it, 350 million people have rare diseases, and most are children.  As a participant in the 7000 Bracelets for Hope...Hop, I am thrilled to show you my Denim Blues Turquoise Bracelet:




The bracelet is being sent to the Global Genes Project where it will be forwarded on to a parent or caregiver of a child dealing with rare illness.  Special thanks to One Kiss Creations Beaded Jewelry and Elysian Studios for building awareness and organizing this wonderful hop!



And please stop by to visit these blogs to view the many beautiful bracelets that are being donated :

So far 22% of participants are saying that Tangerine Tango 17-1463 is their favorite with another 16% showing a preference for Cockatoo 15-5420. As for me, well I have to say my favorites are Margarita 14-0116 and Sodalite Blue 19-3953.
