Bracelet aims to remind people their blessings


Count your blessings is a phrase that helped one organization create a daily reminder of what you truly have.

It's a bracelet homeless guests at Carpenter's Place help bead.  The idea came from a chapel service.  The guests were going around saying what they were thankful for and many were thankful for the small things.  Something as simple as having a meal to eat.

Carpenter's Place Director of Development, Tiffany Staman says all of the supplies are paid for by a generous donator so therefore 100% of the profits go to the Women's Housing Program.

"They are expressed very often to us how grateful they are for the way Carpenter's Place has given them tools to help rebuild their lives and in turn they enjoy giving back to Carpenter's Place."
