Supporting the end of Domestic Violence!!

      As I started to create ideas on making a different design for my friendship bracelets, definitely the notion of creating awareness came to my mind.  Why wear just a simple friendship bracelet when I could make one that can have its own ideas behind?  ... Well, my first idea was creating consciousness on breast cancer since I know people who  have been affected by these terrible disease, but now these Awareness bracelets are going and going to create awareness on many different situations.

     This one is the PURPLE RIBBON, which supports the idea to end Domestic Violence.  It is really shocking to find out how many cases happen everyday and probably we are forgetful about it.  Did you know that around 1.3 million women and 835,000 men are physically assaulted by an intimate partner annually in the United States??  
     For this reason, my Awareness bracelet is to support the end of this daily tragedy in many homes and hopefully as I wear it, people will ask ... what does that friendship bracelet mean???? and that's how I will create the awareness needed.   

Thank you for your support!!
