In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Wisconsin-based jewelry corporation Attérg®, Inc. (uh-tărzh) is expanding on their charitable work with the introduction of their Breast Cancer Awareness Collection. The new line of handcrafted Sterling Silver cuffs and necklaces features inspirational inscriptions designed to both uplift and spread awareness about the disease, and 50% of all proceeds generated from the sale of this collection are donated directly to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
Attérg® is noted for their extensive donations to global, national and local charities, including the International Children's Fund, World Vision, the World Food Programme, American Cancer Society and many more. This new line aims to focus on the disease that threatens the lives of 1 in 8 women. Their corporate motto regarding philanthropy reads, "We believe in sharing with others. We are not 'about us'; rather, we believe in using our talents as a means to help provide for those in need. Attérg® donates a percentage of all proceeds to selected reputable, non-profit organizations. That means that every purchase you make helps make a difference in another person's life!"
The Breast Cancer Awareness Collection has drawn attention from the media, too, having recently been featured in Working Mother Magazine, as well as in the "Pink Pages" feature of L.A. Parent's September issue. During the month of October, breast cancer is a topic that is on the minds of many Americans and forefront in the press, and the new collection from Attérg® is one way that consumers can help to make a difference.
Attérg® expects this latest line to make a splash among the celebrity crowd as well, in the same way that their other designs have already. Fans of their jewelry include a large selection of Hollywood's A-list stars such as Anne Hathaway, Brooke Shields, Jennifer Garner and Rachel Ray to name just a few.
The introduction of the Breast Cancer Awareness Collection is one more way that Attérg® strives to further their commitment to both providing stylish and unique jewelry to their customers while improving the lives of others at the same time. The touching sentiments featured on the new line of jewelry will help to lift the spirits of anyone affected by or suffering from breast cancer, and customers can feel good knowing that their purchase is contributing to finding a cure for the disease.
