Can you help me with an acronym?

I have the following letters. The acronym is about different "ribbon causes" (breast cancer, autism, troops, etc) so I don't want anything funny or leud and this is something I need a serious answer to and help with. :)

I would like it to be something easy to associate with and remember if possible.

Thanks!

  • This is definitely not an easy task - I understand why you're asking for some imput! Well, the first thing I came up with was "SCRAPED" , but I realized considering what the letters stand for, that's not a good idea. Then I came up with "PRACDSE" which kind of looks like "practice". I'll try to see if I can come up with anything else - Good luck!!

  • Thanks LDS :)

    2teens, an acronym is typically a grouping of letters to stand for something else. That way you don't have to use every word. Same as when people on CM use SO for significant Other, DH for Dear Husband, etc.

    happymama, as LDS has acknowledged I am looking for something to use to be easy to remember... such as a word out of what I have provided. Not just a mesh of letters. :)

    If I have to add to it I alwasy could. Such as if there is an additional word you can think of that would relate to the "ribbon causes" that would help to make a better acronym?
