It's really cute...and it's for a really good cause!

Yes it does have to do with the crohns and colitis foundation of canada and I've posted their links on here tons of times with no issues...this is not spam, but I guess simply because it's regarding fundraising that it becomes an issue, which I actually did not know.

I hope those who are interested will go to the CCFC website and check it out since it does afterall support IBD.

Kinda sucks though, it's such a catch 22 for us to not be able to post anything to do with fundraising for our own disease...seems ironic but what can you do. I have to admit, first thing that came to mind when I saw it was how cute it was...the fundraising aspect of it came in second...goes to show first and foremost I'm a born shopper LOL!

Well I am glad I figured it out because it is a bracelet that I know Bratcat would love! And it supports a worthy cause. Thanks for the info!

You are very welcome, I hope they made tons of them, it's so cute and unique...I have their IBD-guy pin they sent me when I first became a member, the design of it is to mimic intestines, and I love that they added it to the bracelet and I'm sure bratcat will love it...it's nickle free which is fantastic because I react to nickle.

The ccfa here in the states (as far as I know) only have the blue Got Guts wrist bands. But I like the candian ones much better! You guys always get the good stuff! *sniffle*
