Helping Hand Cuff for Parkinson's Disease Awareness

When healer/designer, elle Warren, wanted to help make a difference in the world, she decided to create a product she could sell to raise money for Parkinson's Disease Awareness. As a long time caregiver for a dear friend with Parkinson's Disease, she knows first hand of the viciousness of the disease.

"It is amazing to me that so many people's lives are impacted by PD and yet the public makes so little demand towards finding a cure," she stated. "I decided that the next step towards finding that cure is to raise awareness, and so I pledge my support to PDF, whose efforts to raise the consciousness of the American people deserve the support."

So she created the Helping Hand Cuff, a hip and handsome fashion accessory. Made of organic, vegan materials such as hand painted cotton and linen, each cuff is uniquely one of a kind and features a button of metal or wood. The unisex style is available in 3 sizes to accommodate any sized wrist. They are available here.

100% of the purchase price goes to Parkinson's Disease Foundation http://www.pdf.org/parkinson_awareness
Custom sizes and colors are also available.

If you are interested in selling the cuffs yourself to raise money for PD Awareness, elle will discount a 'wholesale' order. She even sells the pattern for $2 to those are wish to crochet a cuff for themselves. Proceeds from the sale of the pattern are also contributed to PDF.
