Project C.U.R.E: Delivering Health & Hope to the World
Having access to sufficient medical care is something we often take for granted. Much of the world doesn’t have the same access to medical care and the devices used to treat medical issues which leads to lapses in care and, unfortunately, illness and death. Project C.U.R.E. began collecting and distributing medical supplies over 3 decades ago. They are the world’s largest distributor of donated medical supplies and equipment aiding doctors and nurses serving in more than 135 countries. Project C.U.R.E. delivers three to five semi-truck-sized ocean containers packed with supplies and equipment each week to hospitals and clinics with limited resources. They partner with hundreds of healthcare professionals traveling to provide critical medical care and training. The pandemic created a greater need for not only medical care but the PPE and equipment needed to battle against the virus on the frontlines.
With the last year impacting so many of us, when we came in contact with Project C.U.R.E. we knew we needed to help amplify their message with a unique unisex bracelet, and interview Project C.U.R.E.’s Ruth Sanchez to learn more about their incredible organization.
Project C.U.R.E. Donor Bracelets
Our Caring Cords bracelets are an incredibly popular product because of their versatility. They are unisex, suitable for all ages, and incorporate brand colors in an eye-catching way. Project C.U.R.E’s bracelets are intertwined black and red, a custom open to match their brand. They come with a custom card featuring their message and their logo front and center. These bracelets were given to donors as a thank you for being a part of their mission and helping the world.
