Winner of a Pair of Peace Cords!

Our good friends at Rhythm Interactive launched a contest at the beginning of August: share why you think Peace Cord makes a great holiday gift or stuffing stocker for the chance to win a pair of bracelets. On August 24th, the winner was announced!

Michelle Topi is a Peace Cord fan, as well as a mother of sons serving in the U.S. Marines. Michelle submitted the following story for her winning entry:

“I have three sons, two of whom are United States Marines, and one just got home from serving in Afghanistan. His mission in Marjah was counter insurgency: to help the local village leaders establish their own strong government. When I discovered ARZU STUDIO HOPE, I was thrilled to see an organization set up to empower the women of Afghanistan to support their families and their community, and felt your company’s purpose resonated with my own life’s purpose. I wear my own Peace Cord daily not only to honor my sons and all of our troops, but also to remind myself to be mindful of living my life in a way that supports peace-building activities – locally and globally.”

Many thanks to Rhythm Interactive for initiating this giveaway, Michelle for her participation and for sharing her amazing story, and a special thank you to her sons for their service!
