Mama Luvs Books: Alex and Ani Charity By Design Giveaway

Alex and Ani Charity By Design
Bracelet Giveaway
~Choose the Bracelet, Choose the Charity~
This giveaway is fabulous because not only do you get a beautiful bracelet to wear, you are also choosing a charity where 20% of the proceeds will go to support. Alex and Ani opened in 2004 by designer Carolyn Rafaelian of Rhode Island. She named the company after her first two daughters, and she created a line of jewelry meant to empower and express one’s inner beauty. She has many bracelets, necklaces, rings, etc. Many of the charms have meaning, and people buy them based on what the bracelet symbolizes. Some popular ones are: The Path of Life, the Four Leaf Clover, and the Star of Venus.
A special line that Rafaelian created is called the Charity By Design line. In this line she creates single charm bracelets that help to raise money for a certain cause, and designs charms that in some way represent this cause. For this giveaway you will choose one from this line. Your choices are the following:
Piece of the Puzzle:
20% of all sales, with a minimum donation of $10,000, from the Piece of the Puzzle Charm will go directly to the National Autism Association that educates and empowers families within the autism community.

Ribbon of Strength:

  60. This is such a difficult decision! I think I would have chosen the Phoenix to represent my grandmother’s ongoing battle with breast cancer/lymphoma/impending liver failure due to pain medications, and total deterioration of the cartilage of both shoulders which results in screams as she attempts to touch her great-great-grandson’s toes. To see such a strong, amazing grandmother and artist nearly helpless is horrible, but I know someday she will be again all she has been to all of us and ever so much more when she finally leaves us.

  61. Shark fin – in honor of my college friend whose daughter has cystic fibrosis.

  62. Kimberly martini says:

    Paw Prints – because i love animals so much!

  63. I would choose Living Water International
