Winners of the ARZU/Peace Cord 2011 Mother’s Day Contest!

Check out the photos and submissions from our Mother’s Day Contest winners! The winners will each receive two Peace Cord bracelets as a prize. Congrats to everyone!

GARY ALFORD, "New Mom"

Gary says: “I have already purchased 3 of them a couple of months ago. I would like to win 2 of them to give out to my team time literature kids who have worked really hard on reading with no complaints, learned the vowel sound combinations, did all their work required and showed improvement on reading tests every week on number of words read per minute. This would force them to work harder, I feel. It did last time.”

JACQUELINE BOYER, "Navy Girl - The Walking Advertisement"

Jacqueline says: “I love my peace cord! It reminds me to pray everyday for peace in the world and for the troops. I bought the peace cord to support the efforts of the Afghan women and their empowerment and for the support of the troops. I bought the navy peace cord to honor the memory of my father-in-law who served in the navy during World War II. I believe in this program and think it’s a great idea. I hope your effort spread across the globe.”

DEDEE SIVE, “Spirit Sisters!”

Dedee says: “Mother’s Day – A day for ALL women to rejoice and share the sheer joy of being a mom or the desire to be one. We women raise most all the children, so we must instill in future generations that we really are a ‘global society’ made up with the fabric of diversity. Let the Peace Cord on your wrist be a reminder of our sisters who are in a struggle to bring peace and equality to their lives and their families – they have tremendous resolve and spirit. They are a beacon of light spreading hope to many, their voices want to be heard! Support our ‘spirit sisters’ by proudly wearing your Peace Cord and giving Peace Cords to all those you love on Mothers Day.”

KRISTIN BUSH, “Childhood Bonds, Motherly Peace”

Kristin says: “My mother holds a very special place in my life. She really is my best friend and is the one who has always been an important role model in my life and now, an important figure in my daughter’s life. My mother brings me peace and the peace cord symbolizes the bond, the tie we share forever.”

DIANE ROCHEFORT, “A Woman is Always a Mother”

Diane says: “I purchased a Peace Cord Bracelet for a gift for a Foster Mother who has done more for a child than many birth mothers! It is truly amazing how a “special mother” can add such love and value to the life of a young man whose birth mother wasn’t able to carry the load. A Woman is always a mother, even if she hasn’t had any of her own children, when she reaches out to someone in need and gives them her love and support.”
