They’re Heeerrreeeeee!

One of the many bags of Team Amy bracelets that just arrived! Photo by Amy Rauch Neilson.

These just in. Literally. There was just a knock at my front door. The first round of Team Amy bracelets have finally arrived via UPS.

I ordered them like eons ago, when I first posted about my sister-in-law Carrie’s idea.

They’re Heerrreee! And they are beauts!

Think bright pink on neon yellow bracelets. Yes, neon. I paid 4 cents extra per bracelet to get the glow-in-the-dark option! How cool is that? And imagine how much fun they’re going to be during the Cosmic Bowling portion of the Benefit!

Big thank yous and shout-outs to Marnie and Norm Fender, and Richard Osmun, who both donated to help me cover the cost of the first 1,000. Another shout-out to Therese Stifter Niemi, who generously ordered — and paid for — 250 more bracelets, due to arrive March 14.

We are still brainstorming over here as to just how we will distribute these. More on that very soon.

Now, really, I’m off to nap.

But not before I remind Sean Norton that he promised he’d be the Poster Boy for my Bracelets! You’re on, Sean!

I can’t wait to get mine! I was thinking… St. Mary’s has a newish cancer center. You could always call and talk to them about handing out bracelets to their patients.

They look fabulous. Let me know the details if you plan to sell them. I think that would be something to blog about. Thanks!
