Fashion Find: Necklace for Charity

Written on January 28, 2011 at 4:23 pm , by

When you do good, you feel good. I love that Kristen Bell has teamed up with Satya Jewelry  (one of my favorite brands) to create a necklace for the charity Invisible Children. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to help educate the youth of Northern Uganda, an area of east Africa that has been ravaged by war.

The inspiring necklace is a 24k gold vermeil tree of life with a small gemstone charm symbolizing peace and education and is being sold for $38 ($45 with shipping) at www.satyajewelry.com. Wear this as a reminder to take care of your mind, body, AND spirit.
