Bands For Arms- GIVEAWAY!

Thanksgiving is nearing and Christmas is quickly approaching. It's the time of year we all get so busy we may forget about those who are not able to be with their families this year. It's the time of year wear we tend to focus on gift giving and big dinners.

Today, I'm posting a Giveaway for The Pearl Harbor Bracelet from Bands for Arms, A company who never forgets and always gives back.
"Welcome to Bands for Arms, whose mission is primarily focused towards all United States Military Services Members. Bands For Arms will donate a percentage of the sale price supporting military non-profit organizations, to help raise funds to continue a bridge of communication with their loved ones. Communication with Sailor, Airmen, Coast Guard, Marine or Soldier with their loved ones back home, is the primary goal and mission of Bands For Arms.
Every Bands For Arms bracelet is hand crafted in it's own creation, so none are identical or made the same, making each one unique and personal.
Each personal Bands For Arms bracelet has a uniform piece from a service member, incorporated within the bracelet.
With each Bands For Arms bracelet, you will receive a small description of the service member who provided their piece towards the bracelet. " ~Bands for Arms
Recently, I ordered The Pearl Harbor bracelet in memory of my Great Grandfather who recently passed away. Pop was a WWII veteran.

When I received the bracelet, I loved it more in person than I did from the pictures, which says a lot because I instantly fell in love with it upon seeing the picture. I wear it all the time!

The owner of Bands for Arms encountered a house fire. Causing him to loose many of his logs, documents, bracelets and uniforms. Because he had no record of the bracelet being shipped, another was sent to me. I emailed to notify them I had already received my bracelet, and Nick said using it for a giveaway for my blog fans would be great!

So, here we are! YOU get the chance to wear this AWESOME bracelet. Seriously, it's awesome.
