Custom-designed by my high school friend, Travis Snyder, and his friend Natasha Merback’s new business, Dance Kandy, these bracelets are a daily reminder to say a prayer for “A Match For Ryan” and a simple way to show your support for Ryan, organ donation, and for creating awareness for kidney disease.

$1 from each bracelet sold will be donated to The National Kidney Foundation.

As you all know, giving back is extremely important to us, which is one reason why I was so excited to partner with Travis on this project.  Dance Kandy was created with the intent of giving back, and they welcome personal stories like ours as an opportunity to create something special that supports the charity of our choice.  Travis has a big heart, a phenomenal zest for life, and radiates positivity every single day.  He took the time to learn about Ryan’s story and truly understands and relates to our “pay it forward” mentality.

Travis is already wearing his Match For Ryan bracelet and pledged to not take it off of his wrist until a match for Ryan is found.  I encourage all of you to do exactly what Travis is doing.  It’s another simple way for us to support Ryan, encourage organ donation, and create awareness for kidney disease, all while giving back to a cause close to our hearts.


Bracelets are just $6 each + FREE SHIPPING, and are available in a variety of sizes.  I love the uniqueness of these bracelets, and I love that they are made in our home state of Pennsylvania by an old friend whose business is dedicated to giving back and helping others.  I never imagined that Travis and I would end up working on this project together, but it just goes to show how our individual life journeys can end up intertwining for a really great purpose.  I’m truly proud to know him, and I appreciate all of the hard work that he has put into these bracelets, as well as the time that he took to learn the story behind them.

To read more about why A Match For Ryan bracelets were created and to purchase one of your own, please visit the Dance Kandy Blog, where I talk more about Ryan’s story.  You’ll also find a heartfelt message from Travis Snyder, President of Dance Kandy.

If you have a cause that is close to your heart, and would like to create awareness for that cause and give back to a charity of your choice through designing your own bracelet, I encourage you to contact Travis Snyder and discuss your ideas with him.  He has such a strong passion for what he’s doing with Dance Kandy, and we had a lot of fun looking at different designs together for our bracelets.  I know he would love to hear from you, and that he would welcome the opportunity to help you help others.  Feel free to email Travis at
