7000 Bracelets for Hope

7000 Bracelets for Hope
I have joined my blog friend Laurie Anderson over at the Pretty Things  for a blog hop to support the 7000 bracelets for hope project.  Each person who has signed up for the hop is asked to make an adult sized bracelet using denim jean inspired theme. The bracelets will be sent to  The Global Genes Project, an advocacy group who launched "7000 Bracelets for Hope", a children's rare disease campaign.  The bracelets are given to one of 7000 families having children with rare diseases to show them love and support.

Since I have family and know of family's dealing with children that have rare diseases I thought it was important to join this cause.  Sometimes it's the little things that can brighten the day of someone going through a difficult time. 

Please take the time to see other bracelets bloggers have made for this project by clicking on the blue names below, I am #40 out of 112.
