7000 Bracelets of Hope

I found this site 'the global genes project', that has an event going on where you can help families with children of rare diseases with a simple donation of a blue bracelet.

The Global Genes Project (GGP) volunteer team is collecting blue jean/denim inspired bracelets for families living with rare disease, the campaign is called “7,000 Bracelets for Hope.”
To help raise awareness we’re asking 7,000 jewelry designers, volunteers from the craft community and various artists to donate one bracelet to this campaign to show their support for kids living with rare disease, disorders or conditions. These bracelets will then be distributed to participating families in February 2011

General Help

(1) Pass-along the details to families you know who have a child with a rare disease and disorder.

(2) Ask jewelry designers, artists, crafters, scouting groups, school groups, church groups, etc. to donate/submit a bracelet along with a personal note of support and encouragement. For example, "A little token of support to let you know you are being thought of."

(3) Post the 7,000 Bracelets for Hope badge/logo on your website.

(4) Volunteer to be a part of the Global Genes Project team. We need everyone’s help to make this campaign a success.

(5) Bracelet Donations can be sent to Children’s Rare Disease Network,
24701 La Plaza – Suite 201, Dana Point, CA 92629
And Don’t Forget to register your contribution so that we know who to thank, and how to contact you!

Here is the link to sign up, and they will register your site, so that people can view it, when you donate:
