Lauren’s Hope Medical ID Jewelry Partners With Type 1 Diabetes Charity, Kids With Courage

Industry: Non Profit

Riverside, Missouri medical alert jewelry company, Lauren’s Hope, partners with area Type 1 Diabetes charity, Kids With Courage.

Kansas City, Missouri (PRUnderground) April 2nd, 2014

Based just outside Kansas City, Missouri, Lauren’s Hope is a medical alert jewelry company owned by CEO, LeAnn Carlson, who founded her organization on the premise that wearing a medical ID and wearing stylish jewelry didn’t have to be mutually exclusive. She created the first attractive, high quality, interchangeable medical alert bracelet in 2001 and continues to innovate and lead the industry today.

Lee’s Summit-based Type 1 Diabetes charity, Kids With Courage, was founded and is headed by Daphna Bottcher, who started the organization with her husband after their daughter was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in 2006 at age 7. Type 1 Diabetes is an autoimmune disease in which the body’s immune system attacks the insulin-producing cells in the pancreas. It causes lifelong dependence on insulin and a constant need for blood glucose monitoring. Type 1 Diabetes is different from Type 2 Diabetes and cannot be cured through diet or exercise as is sometimes possible with Type 2.

Kids With Courage provides “Crates Full of Courage” to Kansas City’s Children’s Mercy Hospital locations, where they are given to children when they are diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. These crates, which are filled with information, resources, tools, and activities are also filled with hope, making the crates, and Kids With Courage, a natural fit for Lauren’s Hope, a medical ID jewelry company that was founded to serve the need of a teenage girl with Type 1 Diabetes.

Lauren’s Hope is pleased to announce that the company has committed to creating and donating medical ID products for Kids With Courage’s 300+ annual crates in addition to devoting ongoing support, resources, and savings to the organization and its constituency.

“It is simply amazing to work with a company such as Lauren’s Hope,” says Kids With Courage Foundation Founder, Daphna Bottcher. “Lauren’s Hope creates the most amazing medical alert jewelry—beautiful, practical, stylish, and there’s something for everyone. They are experts in their field.  The warmth, care, and concern Lauren’s Hope has for the individuals whose life might be saved is apparent in every piece they carefully craft. Who could ask for anything more? Wish we would have found them sooner!”
