FASD Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders Bracelet Prevent AWareness
FASD Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders Bracelet PREVENT
This bracelet was created and designed because FASD touches very close to home for me. My daughter has FASD and it is very important that people become aware that FASD is PREVENTABLE...If you're pregnant don't drink, if you drink don't get pregnant!
I have chosen the colors in this bracelet for the following reasons and am trying to get these colors adopted as the official colors for FASD..
I chose white pearls as pearls represent purity and innocence as that is what every child is.. pure and innocent.. Sapphires were also chosen for the following.
Sapphire is the birthstone for the month of Septemember which is the 9th month of the year, and FASD awareness day is held September 9th.. it also take 9 months for a baby to grow in the womb and also it is the month when the most babies are born.Tradition holds that Moses was given the ten commandments on tablets of sapphire, making it the most sacred gemstone. I have also added to this special design a hematite twist bead that has engraved on all sides PREVENT FASD as it is preventable.
I will donate 10.00 from the sale of each bracelet to the March of Dimes.. or to a charity f your choice.
Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS) is the leading known cause of mental retardation in western civilization (NIAAA, Eighth Special Report NIH Publication No. 94-3699).
Of all the substances of abuse, including heroin, cocaine, and marijuana, alcohol produces by far the most serious neurobehavioral effects in the fetus, resulting in life-long permanent disorders of memory function, impulse control and judgment.
