As a military wife I was completely taken away by this company. Very simple concept with a huge impact. They take old retired or active duty uniform donations and turn them into bracelets. Bands For Arms will donate a portion of the sale price to support The USO Japan, The National World War II Museum, Project Lifting Spirits, and The Marine Toys For Tots Foundation. Bands For Arms goal is to bring awareness to our American military by bracelets made from actual service members' and veterans' uniforms, building a display of communication and support to patrons who wear a Bands For Arms bracelet. Communication with Sailors, Airmen, Coast Guard, Marines, or Soldiers with their loved ones back home is the primary goal and mission of Bands For Arms.
This is a limited edition Quinn bracelet from the 2011 collection. How adorable!
