Welcome to the Global Genes 7000 bracelets for hope, blog hop. (Wow! That was a mouthful!)
The Global Genes Project raises money and awareness for rare diseases. So when Lori Anderson asked who wanted to participate in this hop, I was in! I love any opportunity to take what I do, and use it to help someone. What I really liked about this, is that someone whose family is stricken with a rare disease will actually receive my bracelet!
I hope it will bring a smile to their face.
I hope they know someone out there cares about what they are facing.
I hope it will feel like a hug when they receive it.
I hope this will bring awareness to rare diseases, and help raise money for research.
7000 bracelets for hope. Thats a lot of hope!!!
Oh yeah- I hope they like it!!!!
I used antiqued copper wire, light blue quartz, a coin pearl, grey / blue crackle agate ( I always put a heavy bead opposite my focal so the bracelet hangs right;) some blue labrodorite, kyanite, blue stick pearl, a handmade clasp and chain so its adjustable, and the focal is one of my new components available at Artisan Accents. I will be listing more like that later this week.
So today my prayers are with those who suffer from rare diseases. They must feel so alone at times, and hopeless, so today I pray for hope, I pray for answers, and I pray for cures!
When the world says, "Give up,"
Hope whispers, "Try it one more time."
To eat bread without hope is still slowly to starve to death. ~Pearl S. Buck
Hope sees the invisible, feels the intangible and achieves the impossible. ~
