THANK YOU! We can't shout it from the rooftops enough!! You have all helped our business in our very first month take off and SOAR!! That being said, we were able to donate $207.61 to James and Connie Maynard Children's Hospital (JCMCH) of Vidant Medical Center in Greenville, NC. This was 25% of all of our purchases for the month of October! Thank you to everyone who purchased a band (or more!) to help us make this happen.
JCMCH is one of a few Children's Miracle Network Hospitals in the state of North Carolina, but if you know the story of us, that particular hospital has a soft spot in my (Jess) heart!
While completing undergrad at East Carolina University, the neighboring university to JCMCH, I found my love of working with children in that hospital. I volunteered in the playroom and learned very quickly that Child Life Specialist was the career for me. Fast forward a few years later, in my senior year, I had landed an internship in Louisville, KY in yet another CMN Hospital. Applying for jobs, I found myself back at JCMCH to start my career as a Certified Child Life Specialist in the Pediatric Emergency Department.
So why Brave Bands? And how does this tie in? If you read Our Story, you'll learn all the ins and outs of how we came about!
Thank you again to everyone who helped make this donation happen. Be sure to check out our Instagram page @bravebandsco and our Facebook - www.facebook.com/bravebands to find out where our November proceeds will be going!
