Since he started his organization in July 2006, Bowen has given away over 10 million bracelets to people in 106 countries around the world. He gave away over 2 million within days of being on Oprah.

The sexiest thing in the entire world is being really smart. And being thoughtful, and being generous. Everything else is crap, I promise you.
