PARKLAND, FL- The Parkland girls that created the nonprofit "3 Heart Strings" two years ago are now aiming to support the local heath care community in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis. As the pandemic grew and began to hit closer to home, Gabby Fisher, Stacey Gringauz, Hanna Guttentag, Sofia Rothenberg and Zoe Weissman put their heads together to figure out how they could help.
"We had a virtual meeting to discuss what we can do to help the COVID-19 pandemic crisis. We decided to do the one thing we know best, and that is to sell a special bracelet to help raise money for those in need," said the girls. "The color blue represents the health care community. 100% of the profits raised from the sale of these blue tie dye bracelets will be donated to EndCovid-19.org."
EndCovid-19.org's mission is to help fund emergency medical resources and supplies for Coronavirus victims and medical workers including N95 Masks, Medical Masks, Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), Respirators, and more.They shared the meaning of the bracelet, saying "this bracelet represents HOPE that things will get better; STRENGTH to hold on until it does; & UNITY to tie us all together."
The girls have already had success, selling over 150 bracelets in just one day. For more information or to order a bracelet, please visit the 3 Heart Strings website.
