We designed the Pink Ribbon BooJee beaded lanyards to provide a way for women to express their support for the fight against breast cancer
Sarasota, FL (PRWEB) October 30, 2008
In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Bonitas International, maker of BooJeeBeads unique office jewelry, has teamed up with OfficeMax to offer customers a functional and fashion forward way to support the fight against breast cancer. The Pink Ribbon BooJee lanyard, handcrafted with glass seed beads in shades of pink, rose and gray crystal, is on sale now in OfficeMax retail outlets throughout the country. A percentage of Bonitas International's proceeds from the sales of this specialty necklace, which also features a magnetic breakaway clasp and a clear pouch to hold an ID badge, will go to organizations dedicated to fighting breast cancer.
"We designed the Pink Ribbon BooJee beaded lanyards to provide a way for women to express their support for the fight against breast cancer," says Bonitas International co-founder Kimberly Martinez. "We are proud to partner with OfficeMax in this worthy cause by offering these beautiful one-of-a-kind ID badge holders to their customers."
Bonita International's mission is to provide women with affordable alternatives to the unflattering dangling shoestring ID-holders so prevalent in medical facilities, schools, companies and government offices around the world. Its line of BooJeeBeads brand fun and functional jewelry--including a variety of colorful beaded lanyards, badge reels, ID clips and eyeglass necklaces--is changing the way women think about dressing for work. The items are available at 4,000 retailers worldwide and through the company's Web site, http://www.BooJeeBeads.com.
