Tom Cochrane is many things – World Vision ambassador, Juno award winner, Order of Canada recipient – and we’ve followed him on Twitter for awhile now.. Tom was one of our first Comfort Doll participants 11 yrs ago and has always had a soft spot in our hearts. When we asked Tom if he’d donate his used strings – “of course!” he said.
One day they came in the mail and Tom AND guitarist/slide guitarist extraordinaire Kenny Greer also donated his strings! We have silver. We have gold. We have brass. We have thick, and thin, and copper coloured.. we have strings 🙂 Can’t wait to make some items!
*edit – this is our first bracelet, inspired by Sinking Like a Sunset (and sold..but we can make more, so no worries). Pic of me with Tom about a month after the strings arrived.. after his show in Kelowna. He loved the bracelets (we took one) and what his strings are accomplishing.
