It’s no secret that I LOVE anything and everything Alex & Ani, so much so that I have a growing collection of over 10 of the stackable bangle bracelets. One thing I love about the brand is their Charity by Design collections – whose proceeds benefit whatever cause the charm represents.
This post is all about the Living Water Charm Bangle, whose proceeds go towards the safe-water organization Living Water International. The charm on this bangle is a bright blue water droplet, known as the Living Water Charm, and it was created for daily reflection – considered by the brand to be a symbol of compassion and healing.
Thus far, over $1.1MM has been donated to the organization. A significant amount, to be sure. Below is a bit more from the brand, on the collaboration. To get a Living Water bracelet of your very own, be sure to visit the Alex & Ani website, today!
Who else is a fan of Alex & Ani? I’d love to hear your thoughts, in the comments!
The unique partnership between Living Water International and ALEX AND ANI was inspired by Paige Dellerman, a former high school student at East Greenwich High School in Rhode Island. Dellerman focused her 2013 senior class project on connecting ALEX AND ANI to Living Water International as a way to combine her passion for Living Water with her desire to learn more about the ALEX AND ANI philanthropic mission and charm crafting process. A relationship was naturally established and soon after Carolyn Rafaelian, Founder, CEO, and Chief Creative Officer of ALEX AND ANI, designed the Living Water Bangle.
