Thanks to family, friends, and conscious buyers, we were able to raise great awareness at the 51st annual Ann Arbor Street Art Fair in Michigan. As a non-profit booth, the wristband station was set up along liberty street right across from the delicious vegetarian restaurant, Seva! The art fair ran July 21st through the 24th and was a great success. Thank you to everyone who contributed, we sold over 80 wristbands!

A visit to Colorado last week was inspired by a family I cannot help but love. Allison and Lizzie are two precious girls I had the opportunity to care for while living in Denver 2 years back. Norma and David are the best parents around and continuously shine great lights on these dear little girls. The week was full of fun and the wristband project was on a role. Lizzie and I made Kinko's copies of the wristband flyers and placed them around the city. It was a successful day and by the end of it, it was Lizzie who would briefly describe the details of the project and explain the importance of the flyer. The employees of the visited coffee shops and restaurants were kind and offered space to post our information on the community boards or windows. A big thank you to everyone!
A Denver Favorite. Illegal Pete's.
Favorite part of this place besides the food:
Inside the restaurant, three framed paintings
line the back wall. La Mente. El Cuerpo. La Alma.
The Mind. The Body. The Soul.

A room full of wristbands, I have managed to create a labyrinth in the center of my living space. Luckily, I enjoy hopping over these colorful piles of goodness. At times, the path may lead into another direction. For instance, trips to the kitchen are often interrupted if along the way I spot a wristband that needs immediate naming. The tendency to wonder off course again prevails when there is no excusable reason for why I should not take a moment to pick up and place another worthy band into the 'awesome' bucket. The poor breakfast mango and peanut butter jar will just have to wait. This project continuously awakens my creativity and keeps the noggin jogging. I love the naming part!

Lizzie and I took the afternoon to post up global wristband flyers and spread the good word about the project around the city o Denver. Our first stop, Wahoo's. This eclectic Mexican/Brazilian/Asian inspired food eatery attracts surfers, skateboarders, families, and friends. The food keeps your stomach happy and the loud walls plastered with concert posters and branded stickers keeps your eyes visually stimulated when chowing down. A Denver favorite.
