Raising awareness with Ribbonzs
This was our first year participating as a vendor. We’ve attended for the past three years, as my (Karen’s) endearing nephew, Dylan, has Angelman Syndrome. We have a wonderful time every year meeting the kids, families and friends of this warm, inviting and encouraging community. We were proud to introduce our brand Ribbonzs at the vendor fair.
Ribbonzs is a brand of unique, fun and functional items styled around the awareness ribbon design. We especially designed our Ribbonzs Phone Webzs in Angelman blue for the event. It’s the perfect item to bring awareness everyday, as it fits on most any size Smartphone or case and functions as a great way to get a better grip on your phone! Our very own Terry Farmer, Florida artist and Co-founder of Anoki and the Ribbonzs brand, painted an original oil painting inspired by the Angels, “Angelman on for Courage,” and donated it to the raffle at the walk. We also had an interactive hand printing activity that allowed us to meet and spend time with the kids and families and friends. Our items are also available for sale on our website, Ribbonzs.com.
We developed the Ribbonzs brand with a passion for people and quality of life in mind. We have a personal connection to the Angelman Syndrome Foundation, and we want to do our small part in keeping their gallant efforts going as they work towards continuing their research efforts that will eventually lead to a cure!
Every time we sell an item that was designed specifically for the Angelman Syndrome Foundation, 10% of the sale will go to the foundation. We are reaching out to everyone we know and everyone they know on social networks like Twitter and Facebook. In less than 24 hours, we had over 100 people become aware of Angelman Syndrome and the foundation. We are happy to continue our efforts in bringing awareness to this wonderful cause.

See you next year at the walk!
