Charity by Design: Blessings in a Backpack

Living in the present is the ultimate gift, full of promise and possibility. Allow yourself to be open to life’s greatest moments without taking anything for granted. Seize your opportunities and realize that you are divinely and completely blessed every day, in every moment.

Standing for faith, gratitude and divinity, the Completely Blessed Bangle supports Blessings in a Backpack whose mission is to feed underprivileged school children. Students who participate in the Blessings in a Backpack program show remarkable improvement in school attendance, test scores, behavior and health.

Through October 31, 2014, 20% of all Alex and Ani sales from the Completely Blessed Charm, with a minimum donation of $10,000, will go directly to Blessings in a Backpack. Join the battle against hunger and help feed the future of America.

The Arms of Strength Bangle is $28 and is available in Russian Gold and Russian Silver and can be purchased in Alex and Ani stores, on www.alexandani.com and at select retailers today. Enjoy!

Charity By Design is the heart and soul of Alex and Ani. Carolyn works closely with organizations in creating a unique design that embodies the message and reflects the beauty of each charitable organization. We believe profoundly that people everywhere are anxious to participate in creating change and empowering those who so clearly need assistance. By allowing consumers to enter the charitable world through their purchases, we believe a new generation of philanthropists will emerge.
