Designer Champion – Lori Anderson!
There has been a recent outpouring of activity in large part due to an amazing advocate – Lori Anderson. Lori has designed a ‘blog hop’ for her community of blog followers ‘Pretty Things’ and had a huge amount of support in a very short time from women all around the world offering to participate in the 7K campaign. It is amazing to see how this simple idea sparked so much support. https://lorianderson.blogspot.com/2011/04/bracelet-blog-hop-7000-bracelets-of.html Please check out Lori Anderson’s website/blog, and if you get a chance, thank her! Also, Lori has a very special story as well, she represents pseudotumor cerebri. Also a rare disease. We are so very grateful Lori, we support you and thank you!!!
We are getting in daily shipments of bracelets, and we are working hard to log them, thank the designers and get them ready to be shipped to a rare disease family. If you know someone who deserves a little pick me up, or need one yourself, please register to receive one of these bracelets of hope on the global genes site.
We Need Ideas
We are so grateful with the continued support, we hope it doesn’t end. We are also working to come up with ideas on how to promote some of the designs to make them available to people who might like to also purchase them. We would be interested to hear feedback from the community about ideas for 7K Bracelets. For example, perhaps a favorite designer could make a special design that could be purchased at wholesale from a foundation, and made available as part of a fundraising event. The bracelet designs could also be used as gifts for non-profits for their big donors. There are lots of ideas floating around – we would love to hear from you!
