Wristbands???

Postby kpowers » Sat Jul 02, 2005 03:21 pm

I saw a link a couple of months ago for PE braclets (like the lance Armstrong one) but the link is dead. Does anyone know where to get them? I saw the ones for infant loss but those aren't the ones I saw eariler. They were light purple.

Hi Kim: I'm not sure which light purple wristband your referring to, sorry. However, there is a current effort to make a wristband for PF. I'll keep you posted....

Hi Val: I haven't seen one either. There is an effort underway for a PF band. :)

BTW, how is your project going?

It is going okay, I thought they would sell alot faster, but hopefully once word gets around they will start moving.

I would love a PF band!

Hi Kim: You are a fundraiser in the making! :) Thank you for your suggestion. As it turns out, we have a member who has done the research and cost analysis for PF bands. I'll update on progress.....
