DALLAS, April 6, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Stroke survivors and caregivers inspired a new bangle by ALEX AND ANI benefiting the American Stroke Association available April 20.
For every Wings of Change Charm Bangle sold, ALEX AND ANI will donate 20 percent of the purchase price, with a minimum donation of $25,000, to the American Stroke Association between April and December 2016. Funds raised stay in local communities.
“One in six of us will have a stroke in our lifetime,” said Mary Ann Bauman, M.D., chair of the American Stroke Association Advisory Committee. “This generous gift will help us educate our communities and equip our healthcare professionals so fewer lives are negatively impacted by this disease.”
ALEX AND ANI, an eco-conscious jewelry and accessory brand, has become known nearly as well for its corporate responsibility as its stackable charm bracelets. The Wings of Change Charm Bangle is the company’s first bangle directly supporting the American Stroke Association, but ALEX AND ANI customers have raised nearly $3 Million for the American Heart Association as a whole since 2012.
“Having witnessed the effects of stroke first hand, we are honored to support the much needed awareness surrounding the doctors, patients, and family members who rely on funding to create life-saving changes in stroke and heart health,” said Nicki Maher, senior vice president of ALEX AND ANI, CHARITY BY DESIGN. “Through the Wings of Change bangle, ALEX AND ANI hopes to remind supporters of the resiliency that can be found in life’s beautiful transformations.”
Wings of Change comes in Rafaelian Gold or Rafaelian Silver finishes and will be available at ALEX AND ANI stores nationwide, alexandani.com and authorized retailers.
