Pink Zulugrass Jewelry for Breast Cancer
With this jewelry you get a two for one deal as far as jewelry that helps out a cause because purchases of this jewelry during the months of September and October will help two groups. It's from The Leaky Collection, and during the next few months a percentage of the proceeds from certain jewelry items will go help pay for Breast Cancer research, and at the same time, since the company is founded on the idea of helping the Maasai women in Kenya through commerce, it helps them as well:



June 2007 – During September and October, The Leakey Collection is donating 5% of its sales from a designated group of Zulugrassâ„¢ jewelry to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. In support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, The Leakey Collection will introduce a limited-edition, multi-strand necklace specially designed by Katy Leakey, co-founder with husband, Philip, of The Leakey Collection, and handcrafted by the Maasai women in Kenya. Created from sustainable resources abundant in the Kenyan bush, The Leakey Collection reflects the natural elegance and beauty found in Africa.

Five percent of sales from the multi-strand necklace, along with individual strands of pink Zululgrassâ„¢ beads from select pink colorways will go toward supporting breast cancer research. The company also will continue to put 5% of gross sales back into the community in Kenya for education, infrastructure, and medical needs, with a particular emphasis on the Women's Health Initiative.

This September and October, the purchase of select Zulugrassâ„¢ jewelry not only gives the gift of opportunity to the Maasai women of Kenya, but it gives the gift of hope to women throughout the US whose lives have been touched by breast cancer.

Now, the web site is cool and all that. This jewelry is neat too because you can wear it lots of different ways, but I had a hard time understanding which items of jewelry were considered the "designated group" as mentioned in the press release. However, you have to purchase the jewelry through a retail outlet rather than directly through the web site, so you can probably find out from the retailer. I was pleasantly surprised to discover when I put in my own zip code into their store locator that my local junior college bookstore carries this line. You'd of thunk it :)
