Loom Bands Raise Money for Charity

October 20, 2014

How creative with loom bands are you?Β 

In July, two Welsh ladies designed and made a dress entirely out of more than 20,000 different coloured loom bands.

When the pair originally posted the unique frock on eBay, the auction reached a final bid of $340,000. However the winning bid fell through and the buyer did not pay up.

They reposted the auction recently but the dress only sold for $440, a mere fraction of the original winning bid.

However, the two designers will donate all the money raised to a cancer charity and are happy with the news that the money raised from the sale will cover the cost of a cancer nurse for nine hours.

Would you wear clothes made out of loom bands?
