Fashion, charity and hope; that’s what Wrist Wishes is all about. I’m Nicole LaCross and I started Wrist Wishes in August 2012 after my mom successfully beat breast cancer for the second time. I was so inspired by her strength and positive attitude that I wanted to give back to our inspiring Chicagoland community. I started to research various local organizations and realized there were so many inspirational people locally who had dedicated their lives to giving back to a community that gives so much to those in need. I wanted to be a part of this community.
Wrist Wishes donates 40% of its profits directly to the charity that is represented by your bracelet which allows people to not only outwardly show their support to various fantastic causes, but it also allows numerous nonprofit organizations to continue to help those in need. I have teamed up with numerous incredible Chicago-based organizations including: Bear Necessities Pediatric Cancer Foundation, Bright Pink, Flashes of Hope Chicago, Gateway To Learning, HEAR Foundation, Heartland Animal Shelter, Hope & Heroes Children’s Cancer Fund, Jack H. Marston Melanoma Foundation, JDRF Illinois, LUNGevity, PCARF-Pediatric Cancer Awareness & Research Foundation, St. Baldrick’s Foundation, The ALS Association and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
I will be hosting a premier party and charity fundraiser on Friday June 28th at Loft 644 where 100% of the proceeds from the event will benefit all of Wrist Wishes affiliates. Get tickets here. If you’d like to learn more about Wrist Wishes, please visit my website and Etsy store.
I would like to send a huge ‘THANK YOU!’ to all who have been so instrumental in the growth of Wrist Wishes; this truly is a community-based effort and I am sincerely thankful.
