In the spirit of giving for the holiday season, a recent visitor to the 9/11 Memorial Museum made a generous donation of $500 to the non-profit. Moved by her experience inside the exhibitions, the visitor wished to pay it forward by gifting 9/11 Memorial donation bracelets to museum guests who purchased an item of any value at the 9/11 Museum Store.

The 9/11 Memorial Museum provides bracelets as a thank-you to visitors who make a five-dollar contribution to the organization. Due to this generous donation from a charitable visitor who requested to remain anonymous, a total of 150 bracelets were distributed to museum store guests.
