So here it is 1am and who knows maybe im a bit loopy from lack of sleep lol. But i had an idea, thanks to the mora give away. I wanna be able to do my part because ive been helped by this forum more than you all could ever know. Anyway when im out at work and getting bored on the boat... I make and barter paracord items. Those guys go nuts over paracord braclets. And trust me it has helped me in a pinch (running out of smokes, kinda hard to get to a gas station when your stuck on the river). So anyway im planning a day and over night hike on Thursday. Got a few things bushcrafty i wanna work on. But i figured i would make 5 paracord braclets and give them away. Give me something to do out there. I'm also planning on making your choice of matching keychain fob to go with it. You can choose between a cobra knot fob, square knot (my fav), or a monkey's fist... The braclets and the keychains can be either a single color or two colors.

So here is the deal... I will random 5 ppl Thursday morning before i leave for my trip. If you want in all you have to do is measure your wrist as shown (dont worry ill give ya alittle room to grow). Pick out the colors and what type of keychain you want. You can even do this for someone else close to you (ie wife, kids). Post on here the info... and if you turn out to get lucky i will pm you on friday after i get back for your address. They will either be shipped out Saturday or Monday. Hope to be able to do something like this from time to time. Anyway good luck and dont be scared... no one will judge you on colors or wrist size. I dig the pink too and have small wrists lol.

PS... IF I have enough spare time to split up some fat wood i harvested during mine and my daughter's hike you might find a couple nice peices of fat wood in there tooo!

Hi!
I'd like to put my Scout Troop down for this offer.
A wrist size of 7" will fit everybody. Colours would be OD and Tan, please.

If we win, the set will be auctioned off and the money donated towards our permanent good turn which is the support of the Hannah Foundation (http://www.hannah-stiftung.de ).
The foundation focuses on the prevention of sexual violence on children.

Hannah was a 14-year-old girl who was repeatedly raped and finally murdered only 200 yards away from her house just two villages away from our town. Her parents started the foundation in order to help other children and since then we support them.

Thank you for considering us.

Very cool of you to do this... I make these myself so I won't participate, but I know the effort that goes into these ( I made 11 of them in black and neon pink one afternoon for a group of 8 year old girls for my daughters birthday party....she told me the other day every gril still wears them in class!) Kudos to you my friend.

I would love to enter. I would ask for a standard size as I would give away to tropps returning to home from injury as part of my role in the Marine Corps League. We give families a Fallen Warrior statue when they die if they are from WI.

I am more about the living and would be a great gift to hand a soldier at the airport.

Thank you for this kind offer. I will enter for my son - he has 6" wrists and would undoubtedly prefer black and greyish-greenish, with a square knot fob as a zipper pull for his school bag.

Thanks again!

I would consider it an honor if you would allow me to make a bracelet for your son. I just got in a spool of camo that makes really nice looking cobra weave. Please PM me what length of bracelet you need and a mailing address.
