A good friend of mine is in need of support right now. Emotionally, financially, and physically. She is losing her right leg to an auto-immune disorder known as APS and (probably) Lupus. Lori is showing amazing strength, optimism and energy through everything. Her attitude amazes me every time the subject comes up!
I, along with other friends, am raising money to help fight her climbing medical bills and pay for a new prosthetic leg. The fact that she is worrying more about finances right now than LOSING HER LEG is just plain wrong. I don't have much money of my own to offer up, but I do have time and a profitable hobby. I am putting my own spin on the LiveStrong bracelet concept and offering these special edition Pirate Bands.
Lori chose the colors - very appropriate chocolatey brown (she is an amazing baker) and black - which go with any outfit and fit on any wrist. They will be selling for $7, where $2 pay for the materials (so I can order more!) and the other $5 go to an account set up for paying her bills. If you are feeling extra generous, please donate more! It all goes to Lori.
If you are interested, please leave a comment here or email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) with quantity and shipping address (if necessary). Paypal money to email@example.com. For shipping, please add another $1 (or 2 for international).
Initial bracelet orders may take a while, the supplies are on their way!
Please spread the word, repost, tweet, tell your friends and show off your bracelets. Good prosthetics don't come cheap and Lori is worth every penny and more!
