I ♥ Boobies

"Erin, what does your bracelet say?!"
"Hey Erin, where did you get that bracelet?"
"Well that's an interesting bracelet."

These are all comments that I have gotten whenever I wear my pink I heart boobies bracelet around town. Some people think it is cute, and others shake their heads at the term 'boobies'. However, I wear my bracelet with pride because it means a whole lot more than you would think.

My friend D.J. Shipp was the first person I ever saw wearing one of these bracelets. I giggled when I saw it on his arm, thinking that it was just a silly bracelet that he found somewhere. Then I began noticing other people around me sporting them, and I decided that I might need to get one for myself.

During a random shopping trip to Concord Mills with Brandon Coble and Stuart Thomson, we finally found the bracelets at a skateboarding store called Zumiez. Brandon, being the always generous person that he is, purchased a bracelet for each of us. He said that these bracelets could be our friendship bracelets and that he was never going to take his off. I was very excited that I finally had my own boobies bracelet.

These bracelets are super cute and stylish, everything a girly girl would want...AND who would have thought that they were a way to help stop breast cancer. When you purchase a bracelet, the proceeds will go to The Keep a Breast Foundation. It is a non-profit organization whose mission is to "help eradicate breast cancer by exposing young people to methods of prevention, early detection and support." The idea is to increase breast cancer awareness in young people so they will choose better lifestyles in order to stay healthy and hopefully keep a breast...hence the name.You can learn more about the cause and donate money to the foundation at http://www.keep-a-breast.org. You can also shop for all types of I heart boobies apparel.

The bracelets come in many different colors, so you can pick one that matches your own unique style. You can also purchase other types of items like shoes and lanyards. After I visited the website today, I have my eye on this pretty bracelet. I also would not mind being the owner of this super cute zip up sweatshirt.

I believe that all girly girls and manly men should help out with the cause and rock a I heart boobies bracelet. We all know that the world would be a much sadder place without them.

Ps- last time I asked, Brandon was still going strong and had not removed his bracelet.
