It’s been a month since Ellis started his journey to help his friend Maddox. Since he sold his first bracelet to Tory Brown back in early January, Ellis has made over 150 bracelets on his own. He also received help making bracelets from a few friends as well as the teenagers and college students at Ebenezer Baptist Church. Ellis even recruited the help of Maddox’s family! We’ve been in a sea of green and blue rubber bands around our house. People from all over South Carolina have purchased bracelets. Today Ellis made his first donation of $525 to the Parent Project for Muscular Dystrophy. We’re blown away by how Ellis’ idea has taken off and he’s not done yet. He is still making bracelets and would love to sell one (or ten) to you. Bracelets are still $2. Get yours today! Thank you to everyone who has purchased a bracelet, made a donation or even provided rubber bands (we’ve gone through over 23,000 bands). It’s been awesome to see so many people rally around Maddox and his family as they fight to end Duchenne.
If you’re one of the over 225 people wearing a Maddox Bracelet please post a picture of you and your Maddox bracelet to social media and hashtag it: #hopeformaddox
