  Pura Vida Fundraiser Order Deadline – February 20, 2023  
  Riley Duckworth  2/20/2023 7:00:00 AM  

Today, Monday, February 20th, is the last day to order a custom designed Pura Vida bracelet to support the Illinois Foundation FFA.

Bracelets are $8.00 a piece and can be paid for and picked up at one of the following events:

  • State Livestock/Poultry/Horticulture
  • Ag Mech/Parli/Conduct
  • Illinois FFA Center

If you are interested in placing an order, please click here.

Did you know that your FFA Chapter can sell the Illinois Association FFA Foundation Committee’s custom-designed Pura Vida Bracelets to raise funds for your Local Collection Drive? 

Chapters must sell AT LEAST 25 bracelets to receive credit towards their Local Collection Drive.

Once your Chapter is credited for selling a minimum of 25 bracelets, your chapter will be credited $4 for every bracelet you have sold. That said, Chapters that are credited for selling 25 bracelets will be credited $100 for their Local Collection Drive.


  1. When are orders due? 
    1. The last day to submit an order is Monday, February 202023.
  2. I selected Illinois FFA Center as my desired pick-up location. Now, what?
    1. Riley Duckworth will be in touch with you as soon as the bracelets are delivered to the Illinois FFA Center. Once you have heard from Riley, you are more than welcome to pick up your order any time during normal business hours.
  3. Will the committee be selling the bracelets in person at the listed events or do I have to submit an order form?
    1. Yes, the committee will be selling the bracelets in person at the listed events. However, we will be fulfilling all pre-orders first, which means we will only have a limited number of bracelets for sale at each event.
  4. My chapter has sold 35 bracelets. Do I need to complete a different order form for each bracelet sold? 
    1. No, we highly recommend chapters complete the form once for their entire order.
  5. I want to purchase a bracelet, but I am not sure if I will be at one of the listed events.
    1. On the pre-order form, you are able to list an individual that you would like to pick up your bracelet if you are unable to attend any of the events. Please note, that all bracelets must be paid at the time of pick up.

If you have any other questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Riley Duckworth by emailing or calling 217-753-3328 ext. 104 at the Illinois FFA Center for assistance.
