Oh, I have no need to, in fact I jumped at a KAM's critical error in
what the computer profession was (the use of the inhuman 'what' is deliberate),
and avoid him making such a bracelet unless he understands the implication.

In ribbon culture, if you want to share it, you order and have printed
on whatever
color whatever text you want to share, and exchange them. Personal expression,
not an organizational statement. My print of "Hack Like a Girl" ribbons will be
shared by the young 'un, whom at 6 is finishing construction of her 3d
printed RC
plane (with some grown-up help.) So that would be our family choice, these would
not be paid for by an organization, any more than a ribbon she might
get in return
about whatever maker or gaming or fiction-related meme.

E.g. I'd encourage the foundation to consider doing bracelets or ribbons or
stickers or whatever promoting projects. I'd encourage individuals to print
whatever bracelet / ribbon / sticker floats their boat and exchange them.
