Wear Peace

I saw these unique bracelets on the Today Show yesterday morning. The bracelets are made by Afghan women. They use authentic materials used by our soldiers in the field. The bracelets are parachute cords woven tightly together. This organization is empowering the Afghan women by giving them jobs to help bring their families out of poverty.

Check out the website. For $10 I think it is a great way to show peace and support for our troops who are rebuilding other nations.

Peace Cord Mission:
To empower Afghan women to lift their
families out of poverty and to support
efforts by our troops to help the Afghan
people rebuild their country.
