Grace and Friends

The Origins

The Project Grace Foundation began in 2009 in an effort to provide a supportive learning environment for all children. Fast forward eight years, Grace’s Mom, Martha, found herself creating unique bracelets for family and friends; the demand continued.

Martha Flaherty established the Project Grade Foundation in 2017. As a 501C3 organization, the foundations donates 100% of all profits to supporting innovative advancements in education, advocacy and independence for the neuro-developmentally diverse population. Some organizations are Best Buddies of Wisconsin, Global Down Syndrome Foundation, Down Syndrome Foundation of Wisconsin.

The bracelets are created with a combination of semi-precious stones, metals, vintage beads, charms, and other fabulous finds. Moreover, once you rock one of these unique bracelets you become a member of Gracie’s Tribe.
