The Meah Story Bracelets

You have a story. You want to share your story so that others will hear you, see you. Imagine writing that story down, sending it to us, where we share your story with the world, symbolized by a bracelet with your hand print on it. Your bracelet goes out into the world, and a man, woman or child somewhere puts your bracelet on, finds your name on the back of the bracelet, and logs in to http://www.themeahfoundation.org She finds your name and reads your story. She is moved by your story.  A connection is made and the world is suddenly a smaller place, with greater possibilities for surviving and thriving in it.

The Meah Story Bracelet is a physical symbol of the stories we have lived that can change the world. Stories are about surviving, overcoming, bringing awareness, sharing, experiencing and inspiring others. Every bracelet carries the hand print and the name of a person whose story has inspired us, and we think, will inspire others in the struggle for change.

What inspires you to change? By wearing a Meah Story Bracelet, you can be inspired every day, each time you look down at your wrist you see a story, a story of another human being whose life experience has inspired you or moved you in some way. And wearing a Meah Story Bracelet says you are standing with the one who has shared their story, being witness to it and also sharing it with others. Stories will come from all parts of the globe. When we wear their bracelets, we stand with that person’s dream; wearing the bracelet says we’re sharing the vision, the hope, the possibility. Hand in hand, we can all make a difference.

Connection Bracelets

These are specifically story bracelets that connect children with children all over the world. The stories are from children only and share information such as where the child is from, what their country is like, what their everyday experiences are, what their favorite foods may be, or their hobbies. Do they have family… how many siblings? If they go to school, what subjects do they take? We want children to become more familiar with the life experiences of other children around the world and we want them to learn how other children live and experience every day life. The funds raised go towards educating and building schools in countries where children have no access to education

Animal Rights Bracelets

These are the stories of abused animals sharing what they experience and have had to endure. Just as important are the stories that inspire and uplift. All over the world, animals experience hardship but they cannot speak for themselves, at least not in our language. These bracelets share the stories of hurt and abuse and of kindness and overcoming.
