One of the ways to show your solidarity and care for your fellow countrymen is by wearing awareness bracelets. They are embossed with special messages like solidaritas kebersamaan. Here in Indonesia, the money we pay for each bracelet is donated to people who need help. Each bracelet costs Rp 10,000 and can easily be purchased through tunascendekia. These bracelets come in various colors, each with a different societal concern: red bracelets to raise funds for underprivileged children, blue for the tsunami victims in Aceh and North Sumatra, yellow for people suffering from cancer, and white for the poor.
