From Soldier to Soldier is a fund raising and awareness campaign based on the sales of a designer version of the survival bracelets worn by many US and allied servicemen and women in Iraq and Afghanistan. From the sales of each bracelet, $20 goes to Homes For Our Troops, which provides adaptive homes for severely injured veterans and their families.
The bracelets in the field are braided with parachute cord. They are known as survival bracelets, because they can be unraveled and the paracord can be used for many purposes in a pinch. They are also exchanged among the servicemen and women as friendship bracelets. Often, a uniform button is sewn on and used as the clasp.
The button clasp symbolizes the uniform. The clasped bracelet symbolizes the bond among the soldiers that can never be broken. To some, each knot in the bracelet symbolizes a fallen hero.
The designer version has a sterling silver clasp shaped like a uniform button and is extremely tightly braided. Sterling silver and gold plated sterling silver heart clasps, some with a small diamond or pave’ set Swarovsky crystals are also available. Special Edition versions with 14k gold clasps are available on request.
Pricing: $95 including $20 donation for all plain silver or golf filled clasps / $145 including $20 donation for all gold filled clasps w/ diamond or crystals
The bracelets are hand-crafted in the USA.
