"This bracelet represents not only those who have been lost to these types of cancer, but also serves as a reminder that there is still more work to be done to save the lives of future generations."
San Diego, Calif. (PRWEB) October 06, 2016
Maria Shireen® (http://www.mariashireen.com) - makers of the original hair tie bracelet - is supporting Bright Pink (http://www.brightpink.org), a national breast and ovarian health non-profit organization for the second year in a row through its social good platform CHARITY TIES™. Now through October 31, $10 from each sale of the company’s CHARITY TIES hair tie bracelets will be donated to Bright Pink.
Each CHARITY TIES bracelet is a statement piece with a purpose. Function and fashion combine in this beautifully designed and crafted cuff bracelet that conveniently and discretely holds an elastic hair tie – transforming the piece into a functional fashion accessory. CHARITY TIES limited edition hair tie bracelets are available in silver plated stainless steel for $45 with two options for the accompanying hair tie elastics – pink for breast cancer and teal for ovarian cancer. Each bracelet is engraved with ‘#BANDOFSTRENGTH’ – symbolizing Maria Shireen’s commitment to unifying and empowering the women who buy or gift the bracelets.
For nearly a decade, Bright Pink’s mission has been focused on the prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer in young women. The organization is dedicated to providing resources to 52 million young women between the ages of 18 and 45 with their innovative, life-saving health programs.
“We are very excited to once again support Bright Pink’s efforts in empowering and educating young women about early detection, prevention and treatment of these terrible diseases,” said Shireen Thor, co-founder of Maria Shireen. “This bracelet represents not only those who have been lost to these types of cancer, but also serves as a reminder that there is still more work to be done to save the lives of future generations.”
