Be Charitable: Alex and Ani Launch Sweet Treats Charity By Design Bangle
Summer is even sweeter with today’s release of the new Alex and Ani “Sweet Treats” Charity By Design bangle. The meaning of this bangle as per the attached card is happy, nostalgic and cherished.The ice cream cone exudes blissful energy in connection to shared moments with loved ones. It is a carefree symbol of the simple enjoyment found in savoring a decadent treat. The Sweet Treats Charm is encouragement to fill your days with joyful moments and to celebrate life’s goodness before it melts away.
Through December 2015, 20% of proceeds received by Alex and Ani from selling the Sweet Treats Bangle, with a minimum donation of $25,000, will be donated to Give Kids The World, a 70-acre, non-profit resort in Central Florida that creates magical memories for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families.
I created the above set and paired it with the “Cupcake” and “Zest for Life” bangles.
The “Cupcake” is also a Charity By Design bangle. The meaning of this bangle is sweet, divine and optimistic. A rush of sugar can provide bliss and harmony on the most challenging of days. Cupcakes symbolize the importance of celebrating life’s little moments and the joys of all things decadent. Adorn yourself with the Cupcake Charm to embrace an optimistic outlook that leads to a peaceful existence.
Through December 2014, 20% of proceeds received by Alex and Ani from selling the Cupcake bangle, with a minimum donation of $25,000, will be donated to Race to Erase MS that is dedicated to the treatment and ultimate cure of Multiple Sclerosis.
The third Charity By Design bangle included in this set is “Zest for Life.” The meaning of this bangle is energetic, bright and confident. Tart and vibrant, the lemon is a popular fruit with ancient roots that possesses a distinct flavor and a bold, cheerful color. Its fresh citrus scent is associated with cleansing, symbolic of an opportunity to make a change. This charm is a reminder that when life hands you lemons, you have the power to take positive action, sweeten the situation, and make lemonade. Embrace the confident energy of the lemon to exude your own Zest for Life.
Through December 2015, 20% of proceeds received by Alex and Ani from selling the Zest for Life Bangle, with a minimum donation of $25,000, will be donated to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation to help raise money and awareness of childhood cancer causes, primarily research into new treatments and cures.
The Charity By Design bangles retail for $28 and can be purchased at any Alex and Ani store or from their website, www.alexandani.com.
