7000 ‘Bracelets for Hope’ Huge Success Due To Donations By Jewelry Designers
May 4, 2012
The 7,000 ‘Bracelets for Hope’ campaign continues to raise awareness and give hope to families affected by rare disease!
With over 700 families signed up, over 1,000 bracelets received from designers and volunteers from around the world and a Facebook presence that exceeds 16,000 supporters, this campaign continues to grow hope and raise awareness!
Jewelry designers Erin Fickert-Rowland of Elysian Studios, CO, and Christine Altmiller of One Kiss Creations, PA, pulled together a blog-hop of over 50 designers who donated unique bracelets to participating families as a sign of support!
What was their inspiration?
“I support this campaign because a child and their family should never feel alone, especially if they are fighting a rare disease. Hope is a powerful weapon!” – Erin Fickert-Rowland.
Christine Altmiller said the reason for her involvement was: “Human Kindness”.
We are very grateful to both Erin and Christine for their contributions to this campaign. Thank you!

Hope is like a road in the country; there was never a road, but when many people walk on it, the road comes into existence. — Lin Yutang
