I made this thread not long after I started giving away Do No Harm freebies. As a lot of you know I bring gobs of it to the annual brunch and this year will be no different. I have a shipment of bracelets, pins, and decals on the way. If you come to the brunch on Friday you will harassed by me to take some swag (well maybe not harassed, but if I offer more than once I apologize in advance, corn affects the memory lol).
Check out www.donoharm.us if you have a chance. There's an essay on the front page. They will add anyone's name as a co-author of the essay as a way to show support. I told Clyde Grossman (one of the founders) about Matt Sloan. He added his name as a co-author. I gave Matt a pin and bracelet last year at the brunch and talked with him for a few minutes. It won't be a surprise that he loved the concept. He has the pin on his shirt in the pics from that day. From what I know about Matt he lived the idea of doing no harm everyday.
I have tons of DNH freebies to give away again this year: pins, round decals, and bracelets. And this year I will actually have the bumper stickers I promised last year.
Thanks to Fawn & Quacker I will be easy to spot in my DoNoHarm Roo-tu at the brunch. I'm working on decorating it now
Last year the CarpeDM's on Matt's Tree got an addition:
Matt's mom saw this pic on FB:
Sara, thank you for posting all the pictures of Matt's tree...I loved seeing them! He would have loved the addition of the "Do no harm" pin...although how it got up there is anybody's guess! The tree looks wonderful...I love it. June 27, 2011 at 5:39pm
There's no combination of words I could put on the back of a postcard. No song that I could sing. But I can try for your heart Our dreams, and they are made out of real things Like a, shoebox of photographs With sepiatone loving Love is the answer
A little feeling in my gut that I get of late when I think about these cats running the world with hate

thanks bek! mad karma to the guys who founded this non-organization. there's no telling how much $$ they spend sending out bracelets, pins, and stickers (they will not except ANYTHING in return except maybe to put your name as a co-author of the do no harm essay). i'm getting another shipment within the next couple of days. i've got three big shipments planned before the festies i'm attending this spring/summer. if you are at day celebration, roo, or all good plan on getting all the do no harm freebies you want!

Once again, I've taken my wristband off to keep it safe, moved, and haven't seen it again. Save one for me Sarah. Still have the pin on my backpack and a few extra to hand out. Can't wait to see you guys!
how amazing is this...I signed up on the website and within an hour got an email from Mike welcoming me. These people are incredible. I'm sorry that I didn't get involved sooner. As a healthcare provider I will have lots of opportunities to spread the word.
