We have bracelets!

163,000,000 minus 1.

According to UNICEF, there are an estimated 163 million orphans living in our world.

Let’s do a little fun math. The earth is 24,900 miles around. If you took all the orphans in the world and had them stand in a line with their arms outstretched, hands touching, how far around the earth do you think that line would stretch? Don’t want to do the math? Don’t worry, I did it for you.

163,000,000 orphans would wrap around the earth……5 times.

Wow.

163,000,000 is such a large number that it’s hard to really grasp. But 1 is an easy number. 163,000,000 minus 1.

We are selling these bracelets for $5 each. All proceeds from the sale go directly towards funding our adoption of a baby boy from Ethiopia. If you would like to place an order, click on the “Add to Cart” button on the right hand side of the blog. We really appreciate it. And so does a little baby on the other side of the world.
