SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) December 23, 2013
Jill Milan®, a provider of designer Italian handbags, today announced The Little Foxes Gift Guide features the “Lucky” pendant, Jill Milan’s first jewelry offering. The Lucky pendant is part of a fundraising effort to support Southern California Thoroughbred Rescue, a non-profit organization which rescues at-risk thoroughbreds from slaughter. The Lucky pendant, made of sterling silver, is named for a horse recently rescued by SCTR, and all net proceeds from its sales will help defray costs of care and rehabilitation for Lucky and other rescued horses.
Created by Ashlee Piper, The Little Foxes blog serves as a source of information on vegan recipes and animal-friendly products “without compromising taste, ethics, or style.” Piper’s blog has been featured in leading magazines such Refinery 29 and Veg News. Her selection of vegan-friendly items includes Tata Harper’s Beauty in Bloom products and Another Feather’s Crest Cuff. Her selection of items can be seen at http://www.thelilfoxes.com/2013/12/17/holiday-gift-guide-mom/.
The Lucky pendant was designed by a leading California designer of luxury jewelry and features a horse’s head in profile. Made in Florence, Italy, of sterling silver, the Lucky pendant is available in limited release and retails for $150. It is available for purchase online at http://sctbrescue.org/The_Lucky_Pendant.html. Net proceeds support SCTR.
