7000 Bracelets Blog Hop

Yesterday was the reveal for the 7000 Bracelets Blog Hop hosted by Sue Kennedy
I'm running a little late......
Back in October, Sue sent out an invite to participate in a blog hop to benefit the 7,000 Bracelets for Hope campaign.
  This is a bracelet program for people or families who suffer rare genetic diseases.  Here's a bit of information directly from their donation page:

"Cause bracelets have been available for breast cancer and heart disease but there has never been a unifying symbol, color or bracelet that represents the rare and genetic disease community.  That’s why we started the 7,000 Bracelets for Hope™ campaign.
Since launching the campaign in 2010, Global Genes has received thousands of unique blue themed bracelet designs made from everything from cut strips of recycled denim to vintage blue glass to turquoise stones. The creativity from our volunteers is truly inspiring!
The number 7,000 represents the 7,000 different rare diseases that impact 1 in 10 people, 30 million Americans and 350 million globally.  Each individual blue bracelet design we receive represents the uniqueness of one of the 7,000 rare diseases and many of our volunteers send in multiple copies of a single design.
Our goal is to continue to collect unique bracelets made by jewelry designers, artists, crafters, church groups, girl scout troops and other volunteers and distribute them to our families fighting rare and genetic diseases. Adults receive handcrafted bracelets made by our jewelry designers while children receive love friendship bracelets filled with hope."
I thought this was such a great cause!
Here is the bracelet I made :
I will be sending my donation off this week!
Take a look at what everyone else made for this cause:
