October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month – Show Your Support
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Show your support any way that you can. Donate money to fundraisers and organizations. Volunteer your time – or simply just spread the word to bring awareness to others. A nice way to show your support is to wear it on your arms and create a conversation starter.
I created the above set and paired it with the “Arms of Strength” and “Stand Up to Cancer” bangles.
The “Arms of Strength” is also a Charity By Design bangle. This bangle represents Hope • Resilience • Support. The graceful starfish is a regenerative creature, consistently growing and transforming whenever necessary. Courageously it moves forward through both calm and troubled waters. Created with a pink stone at its core, the color of nurturing love, the Arms of Strength Charm honors the brave and the optimistic.
Through October 2014, 20% of all Alex and Ani sales from the Arms of Strength Charm, with a minimum donation of $10,000, will support the Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Resource Foundation, a Rhode Island non-profit that works to spread awareness, education, resources, and hope in the fight against breast cancer.
The other Charity By Design bangle included in this set is “Stand Up.” This bangle represents Collaborate • Honor • Change. In this moment lives are changing. People are uniting, standing up to better the world, and protecting the future. Together we are unstoppable. Join the movement and stand up to honor, connect, and accelerate change.
20% of all Alex and Ani sales of the Stand Up Charm, with a minimum donation of $10,000, will go directly to Stand Up To Cancer, a ground-breaking initiative created to accelerate innovative cancer research that will get new therapies to patients quickly and save lives now.
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.
I rounded out the set with the Shiny Silver finish Set of 3 bangle ($38), Cotton Candy Sugar Rush Beaded Bangle ($38), Shiny Silver Nile Beaded Bangle ($38), and Blush Rock Candy Beaded Bangle ($38). All of these bangles are also available on the website or at stores.
