Wear a bracelet, find a job...

I can't believe it's already June 1st. 2009 is flying by...already 1/2 over. Oy vey!

Okay, so you know those rubber bracelets that everyone wears for different causes? Started with Lance Armstrong's Live Strong and now it seems like every charity has one. Well,I want to share a link that I discovered yesterday. Now there are bracelets available that help you promote your own cause.

These two ladies in Sarasota, Florida designed these bracelets that say "Laid off. I need a job." What a brilliant idea. Wish I would have thought of it. It's just like wearing a sandwich board back in the day saying, "Will work for food..."

Apparently, these wristbands are selling like hotcakes and if nothing else, they are conversation starters....someone says, "Oh...I see you're looking for work...what type of work do you do?" And you tell them what type of work you do, and then before you know it, bingo, presto, chango, you're back in the game.

They're sending me my bracelet today. They come in two colors...neon yellow and neon pink. I'm getting the yellow one. I will wear it everyday. I told my friend David about it, and he said, it's easier to wear a bracelet than to carry around one of those heavy sandwich boards. Amen to that!

I told the Sarasota ladies I would help spread the word, so here I am...spreading the word. Check out their site if you want your own bracelet.
If the economy starts getting better, and people start finding work'll know who to thank!

There are too many of these fad bracelets around. This idea is getting out of hand. But if people like to wear them, who am I to complain. My wife doesn't like bracelets, unless they have diamonds. - Mike B.
