Think Pink- Fighting for the Cure

Most of you know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  In some way, all of us have been touched by this disease.  Perhaps you or a loved one has battled this cancer; perhaps you have been personally moved by the millions of stories of hope and survival.  I am inspired by the number of women around the world who have pledged to fight this disease.  

I have been a fan of The Leakey Collection  for some time because they truly believe in the power of ‘women helping women’.  Their jewelry pieces have brought awareness to both local and international causes for years.  To honor the fight against breast cancer, they have created a special line of Zulugrass necklacesearrings and bracelets namedKuponya.  Kuponya means ‘to heal’ in Kiswahii.  The multi strand pieces are popular because they can adjust from a long necklace to a choker with a pull on the satin cord. The pieces are lightweight, comfortable and are a dazzling shade of pink.  These versatile pieces are handmade by the Maasai women in Kenya from hand cut grass beads dyed with low-impact, colorfast dyes.  5% of the sales from the Kuponya pieces go back to breast cancer research an additional 5% goes back to the Women’s Health Initiative in Kenya.  Not only does it help the local community of Kenya, but it helps women across the globe!

 This Fall, if you are looking for a way to honor yourself or your loved one who has been touched by breast cancer, consider a Kuponya piece from Zulugrass as a gift for the holidays or for any special occasion.  This is truly is ‘women helping women’ at its best.
