ALEX AND ANI Releases New Holiday Bracelet Benefiting Give Kids The World Village

The Charity by Design collection from Alex and Ani supports nonprofits around the world, and Alex and Ani has teamed up once again with my favorite charity, Give Kids The World Village (GKTW).

At GKTW every Thursday is a Winter Wonderland where snow magically falls and Santa visits to share presents with all children. Santa visits every Thursday because GKTW is the nonprofit resort in Florida that provides weeklong, cost free vacations to children with life-threatening illnesses and their families, and these special families may have missed out on previous holiday celebrations.

ALEX AND ANI has raised over $546,000 for Give Kids The World since the partnership began in 2014. It has helped fund more than 200 wish trips for critically ill children and their families. The free, weeklong trips include accommodations, meals, transportation, theme park tickets and more.

“We are so grateful to ALEX AND ANI for everything it has done to help the children and families we serve,” said Give Kids The World President and CEO Pamela Landwirth. “Its CHARITY BY DESIGN bangles are both beautiful and meaningful. ‘The Christmas Car’ follows in this tradition and is sure to become a holiday favorite.”

Available in a sparkling gold finish, The Christmas Car features a red Volkswagen Beetle carrying an evergreen tree on its roof. It is part of ALEX AND ANI’s holiday collection and is the fifth bangle created to benefit Give Kids The World.

“The road to the holidays is always paved with excitement (and evergreen needles)” writes ALEX AND ANI describing its Christmas Car piece. “Overflowing with packages, hot cocoa, cheerful songs, and warm feelings, it’s a caravan traveling full speed to Christmas bliss. Buckle up and enjoy the ride.”
