What if you couldn’t live with your family because they were diseased and you were helpless to stop it? What if you were only 8 years old? And what if someone, somewhere in the world did something to change all that?

I am a 7th grader from Texas raising money for children in India whose families are affected by leprosy. I helped design a bracelet that symbolizes the power within all of us to make a positive change for others. The proceeds from the sale of the bracelet will help bring the gift of hope and security to these children.

What you do with the bracelet is up to you.
