The “blood brothers” bracelet


The Bulgarian tradition of Martenitsa involves tying a red string around one’s wrist for the mythical Baba Marta to end the bitter cold of winter and welcome the spring. In Hindu tradition, a red bracelet is worn to symbolize blessings and goodwill to the person it is offered to.  In ancient Chinese, the “red string of fate” is an analogy for two people who are tied together by an invisible red string.

In Lebanon, we are hoping to start our own tradition using a red string to symbolize the dedication of its bearer to the humanitarian cause of donating blood which is also useful in case of a medical emergency.

Since launching in March 2011, over 9,000 bracelets have been purchased…you have probably seen a friend wearing one! The bracelet helps to fund the daily operation costs of DSC as well as providing us with extra funds to support appreciation activities for our volunteers and donors.  Help us join other countries in the tradition of the red bracelet while contributing to a great cause by purchasing one directly from our office, Facebook fan page. or at the following points of sale:
