What you’ll do

Each of the 300,000+ care packages this organization sends every year to deployed troops, veterans, wounded heroes, caregivers, and first responders includes a paracord survival bracelet because they’re both functional and meaningful. Handmade by tens of thousands of Americans who want to express their gratitude, these bracelets can be unraveled in an emergency situation to provide 7.5 feet of super strong rope or string, if needed. The outer sheath and inner strands of the paracord bracelet can be used as a sling or to tie on a splint, as sewing thread to stitch wounds or repair gear, as a tripwire or to make nets and traps, and for many other potentially life-saving uses!

Creating each bracelet takes about 8 to 10 minutes. Instructions for how to make bracelets and where to ship them when you're done can be found here. Supplies can purchased online here

You will be provided with instructional videos from the organization to guide you through the activity.
