Erin and Christine of Elysian Studios and One Kiss Creations organised a blog hop for the 7000 Bracelets of Hope Campaign. Here's a quote from Erin's blog, explaining what we're doing and why:
"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."
I took part last year with a blog hop organised by Lori Anderson, and got it hopelessly with the blog hop date, only realising when I was in rural Spain without any good internet connection that I was going to miss the date of the reveal! So this year I am being more organised - I am scheduling my post to go out on time, as this year I'll be in Paris on the reveal day! It's a hard life ;-)(I'm not really a massive jet-setter, I promise!)It's such a lovely idea, and such a simple one to participate in. I'm so glad Erin and Christine organised this blog hop again to raise awareness - thank you!
I decided to create a couple of bracelets, relatively simple in design so that most people would be happy to wear them, whatever their style. I also made them adjustable so that again, anyone can wear them. I love the idea that all of our bracelets are made with such love and then getting sent off to total strangers.
Please check out everyone else taking part and see what they've come up with. I'll be visiting on my return.
