Austin, TX (PRWEB) April 16, 2007
In exclusive partnership with jewelry designer Metalsgirl, Give Simple, the online gift boutique for women, has announced the availability of its Susan necklace, designed to raise awareness and funds for the fight against breast cancer. The sterling silver necklace, featuring a 1/2" petal pink resin square containing a hand-formed silver ribbon, can be purchased beginning today at http://www.givesimple.com. A portion of the proceeds from the necklace will directly benefit Give Simple's official national charity, Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
"Like so many of our customers, designer Laura Gibson (Metalsgirl) and the Give Simple Girls have been directly touched by breast cancer -- through mothers, grandmothers, sisters and friends -- and we want to do our part to encourage women to live well and support breast cancer awareness," said Give Simple Founder Kendra Wright. "The necklace is a subtle and beautiful statement in the fight against breast cancer, a perfect way to honor and remember those we lost, as well as the disease's courageous survivors."
There is no cure for breast cancer, but early detection is the key to survival. In fact, when breast cancer is confined to the breast, the five-year relative survival rate is more than 95 percent, according to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. What's more, timely screening mammograms could prevent 15 to 30 percent of all deaths from breast cancer in women over age 40.
In addition to its financial commitment, Give Simple is a corporate sponsor of, and will participate in, the Austin Race for the Cure on Sunday, November 4.
The Give Simple Story
The frilly edged white platter was, in a word (okay two words), utterly perfect. Kendra Wright, a marketing consultant and "serial entrepreneur," first spied the Flirt platter in New Orleans and scooped it up for her kitchen back home. She later e-mailed the manufacturer and learned that they weren't available online. If she wanted another platter, she'd have to visit Little Rock.
Kendra set off for Arkansas and decided that the pretty white platters were simply too good not to share. With the help of her sister, Tracy Brown, her close friend Karen Beller and her fabulous business partners (plus a whole lot of candle sniffing and serious shopping) Give Simple was born.
It's the little surprises and delicious moments that truly put a spring in our step. The same goes for gifts. Give Simple has combed the markets to find goodies that add a serious hit of fun to each and every day, offering specialty brands such as Pine Cone Hill, French Bull, Niven Morgan, K. Hall Designs, Paddywax, Voluspa, Mudlark, and Waste Not Paper. All of Give Simple's products are fresh, contemporary and easy to integrate into one's life.
From fresh and colorful melamine bowls, plates and platters to a super soft robe for a chilly night, we only sell gifts that we absolutely love. If we wouldn't wrap it up for our best friends, it won't make the cut. Visit http://www.GiveSimple.com for more ways to bring order, harmony and new energy into your life. We're dedicated to making life simpler, one woman at a time.
About Komen for the Cure
Nancy G. Brinker promised her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, that she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever.
In 1982, that promise became Susan G. Komen for the Cure and launched the global breast cancer movement. Today, Komen for the Cure is the world's largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures. Thanks to events like the Komen Race for the Cure, we have invested nearly $1 billion to fulfill our promise, becoming the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world.
