In response to my posts (here and here) about the annual fund-raising CANSA Shavathon, my blogfriend Amy from Nova Scotia told me about the Sparkles of Hope bracelet that is sold by the Newfoundland Cancer Association to raise funds for them.
“The bracelet consists of a string of coloured crystals, each one meant to represent a different type of cancer. A card in the box lists all the types along with the colour.”
“On the cover of the box the question is asked: “Who are you wearing it for?””
I think these bracelets look very pretty indeed. And I agree with her that this is a brilliant campaign idea, so I’ve forwarded the info to the local cancer association. Perhaps they will take it further?
Thank you, Amy.
