Modern Jewelers raises funds for wounded heroes

2 mins read

Modern Jewelers of Beaufort is proud to introduce From Soldier To Soldier, an awareness and fundraising campaign in support of wounded veterans and their families. The campaign is based on the sales of a designer version of the survival and friendship bracelets worn by many U.S. and allied soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan.
For every bracelet sold by Modern Jewelers, $25 is generated for Homes For Our Troops and other organizations supporting returning wounded veterans and their families. The campaign is part of a national effort to raise significant funds for veterans’ aid organizations and bring attention to the special needs of returning heroes.
“We are very pleased to partner with Modern Jewelers in support of this unifying cause,” stated Niels Christiansen, CEO of LovelinksAmerica, the Massachusetts company behind the national campaign. “From Soldier To Soldier is neither pro nor anti war. It is pro our young men and women who put their lives on the line for our country and made horrific sacrifices. It is about the survival, friendship and commitment, symbolized by these bracelets.”
The bracelets in the field are braided by the soldiers 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 soldiers 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 From Soldier to Soldier bracelets are a stylish fashion statement with a conscience and a powerful fundraiser in honor of our veterans. The bracelets are handcrafted in the USA. Prices start at $95 — $25 of the sale is generated for Homes For Our Troops and other organizations supporting returning wounded veterans and their families.
