Not everything is light-hearted and beautiful in life, sometimes I think people forget that there are tens of thousands of people facing issues of abuse issues every day. For me, child abuse is an issue that too many sweep under the rug, because people are afraid to speak up or get involved. Well speaking up or at least bringing suspected abuse to the attention of someone who’s in a position to help can save the life of a child. In an effort to bring awareness to some the biggest issues in the US today, the “I’m Tired” campaign was launched.
So what can you do?
While we all don’t have time in our lives to volunteer, we can always get involved.
The “I’m Tired of” bracelet concept was sparked by the success of Lance Armstrong’s effort to raise money for cancer with a simple silicone bracelet. When they set their criteria, they decided that, like Armstrong’s, first and foremost, it had to be inexpensive so everyone could afford it.
These eco friendly and fashionable bracelets have quickly become a celebrity favorite. Jenny McCarthy, Lance Bass, Shannon Elizabeth, Willa Holland, Kim Kardashian, and Christina Milian are all fans of the bracelets.
What are you tired of? Cancer, Global Warming, AIDS, Animal Cruelty, Diabetes, Heart Disease, World Hunger, Alzheimer’s, Autism, Child Abuse and more bracelets are available at www.imtiredonline.com.
For every $10 bracelet sold, they donate $5 (that’s half) to important causes. You pick the cause and your bracelet and the donation will automatically be made on your behalf.
So what are you going to actively say you are TIRED of?
