Duluth, GA (PRWEB) September 04, 2013
Christopher Radko Gallery, an authorized Christopher Radko ornament retailer and division of Peace, Love & Decorating, is proud to announce plans to follow the tradition of giving back started by Christopher Radko with the creation of the Radko Charity Awareness ornament collection. For the 2103 holiday season, Christopher Radko Gallery will follow Christopher Radko's charity commitment and donate a portion of the proceeds from sales of Radko Charity Awareness ornaments to the charities represented in this special collection of ornaments.
Every year Christopher Radko creates a unique collection of highly anticipated European glass Christmas ornaments for the Radko Charity Awareness collection. Each ornament is specially designed to embody the colors, themes, and personality of the charity cause in a festive and whimsical manner. For example, the 2013 ornament designed to endorse animal welfare, Cute in a Boot, features one of Santa's boots with a playful kitten peeking out from the top and puppy dog dressed in holiday cheer, and the Christopher Radko breast cancer ornament, Think Pink Nick, is a delightful portrait of Santa in pink with his suit of pink glitter, showcasing his pink present filled sack embellished with the breast cancer ribbon. The Christopher Radko Charity ornaments continue to represent one of the most popular and sought after ornament introductions each year and are some of the most collectible Radko ornaments.
"We are proud to be a part of the Christopher Radko Charity Awareness program and are honored to follow their example of giving back by donating a portion of our Christopher Radko Gallery charity ornament sales to these deserving organizations dedicated to research, prevention, and public awareness," said Christopher Radko Gallery co-founder, Jana Contardi.
"So many of us are touched by circumstances involving a loved one or close friend who has been afflicted with one of these terrible diseases so it is an honor for all of us at Christopher Radko Gallery to be able to support these wonderful organizations," added Christopher Radko Gallery co-founder, Jennifer Cook.
Christopher Radko continues to grow this collection of philanthropic Christmas ornaments. In 2013, Lymphoma Awareness was added to the Radko Charity ornament collection in honor of Martha Harris who was a dear friend of Christopher Radko Chief Executive Officer, Heather Shepardson.
The 2013 Christopher Radko Charity Awareness ornament collection includes twelve charity ornaments: Celebrate Martha Lymphoma Awareness ornament, From the Heart Disease Awareness ornament, Think Pink Nick Breast Cancer Awareness ornament, Going Green Environmental Awareness ornament, Claus for a Cure HIV/AIDS Awareness ornament, Penny's Treasure Pediatric Cancer Awareness ornament, Bear-y Merry Diabetes Awareness ornament, A Very Important Piece Autism Awareness ornament, Cute in a Boot Animal Charity Awareness ornament, Salute the Troops Veteran's Awareness ornament, Ellie Alzheimer's Awareness ornament and Officer Nick Law Enforcement Awareness ornament.
For more than twenty-five years, Christopher Radko Ornaments have represented some of the most collectible European glass Christmas ornaments in the world. In addition to the 2013 twelve Charity Awareness ornaments, the new 2013 Radko ornament collection includes over seven hundred handcrafted glass Christmas ornaments still made in Eastern Europe using time-honored methods.
