Patti Vanderbloemen has donated over 100 bracelets and has asked me several times to make blue beads for this purpose. This summer, she once again asked me to make beads. She doesn't ask for a donation either, she fully pays for all the materials she uses to make the bracelets. This is what I sent her right before Bead Fest (all photos are Patti's property) :
She doesn't ask for specific beads other than the main color is blue. This can be fun because you can use your imagination!
Here are some bracelets she made with the beads from above:
There are certainly many charities you can donate your money, time or talent to, and this is just one of them! If you are so inclined, you can visit Global Genes and find out more about their mission and organization. And if you wish, you can donate blue bracelets to them here:
