The Global Genes Project exists to raise awareness and support for the more than 30 million people affected by rare diseases. There are currently over 7,000 rare diseases identified, and 75% of those affected are children. With the 7000 Bracelets Campaign, the Children’s Rare Disease Network gives artists and crafters an opportunity to lovingly share their creative gifts with families who have a child suffering with a rare disease.
What a great idea, yes? I can imagine that with so much focus on health and getting through- there likely isn’t much time or resource devoted to the mothers or caretakers in these families. In this blog hop, over 50 designers are participating to make and donate a bracelet. The theme: blue denim, simple & casual. I am donating this bracelet from my shop;
And I made this piece for the Project. (Apologies for my West coast delay- I had to wait for the sun, to photograph…)
The bright turquoise colored stones, pearls, and crystals feel good to wear; the special double-sided Thai silver charm and smoky quartz are symbols of strength and hope to me.
Hop on over to the designers below to see more creations from the heart!
(PS: I’ve visited/tried to comment on all- but blogspot for some reason, won’t accept many of my comments ERGH. I attempted many times… It must be a wordpress/blogspot thing? This is even before I get to your catchpas. 😉 If anyone has advice- pls. leave it! (Besides ‘leave wordpress’, haha!)
