Helen Ficalora, a Project Sunshine retail partner, is helping to support the nonprofit during April, Project Sunshine Month, by donating a portion of sales from select exclusive designs to the organization. Project Sunshine is a nonprofit organization that empowers a dynamic and dedicated corps of over 15,000 volunteers to bring programming – recreational (arts), educational (tutoring and mentoring) and social service (HIV and nutritional counseling) – to over 100,000 children facing medical challenges and their families in 175 major cities across the United States and in four international locations: Canada, China, Israel, and Kenya. The enrichment programming allows brave young patients to reach academic and developmental milestones and to find the courage and coping skills necessary to confront challenges ahead. Project Sunshine Week - from April 28 to May 5 – is a week dedicated to raising awareness and support for the organization through a series of events and programs.
In celebration of 2016 Project Sunshine Month in April:
Helen Ficalora designed a special sterling silver Sunshine Charm ($95), with 100% of the proceeds benefitting Project Sunshine throughout the year, available only at www.projectsunshine.org.
In addition, Helen Ficalora designed a 14k gold Sunshine Charm, starting at $295, exclusively for Project Sunshine, with 25% of proceeds going to the organization during Project Sunshine Month and throughout the year. The charm is available in yellow, white and pink gold, and sells in her New York City, Bridgehampton, Beverly Hills, Chicago, Dallas and Palm Beach stores, as well as online at www.helenficalora.com.
