If you like a little bit of sparkle and glam, this bracelet offers subtle beauty. I wear my Agate bracelet every day all day and put this one on for special occasions and night outings. Just like everything else offered in the #blueforbennett shop it is put together with love and care. Thanks for another positive reminder of my beautiful boy; the glimmer reminds me of his curious eyes and his ever-giving smile.

Bennett was my beautiful son. I have worn this bracelet every day since receiving it and have received so many compliments. As someone who has also made jewelry for myself in the past, I took note of the quality craftsmanship. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for my #blueforbennett.

About

Gia's Sparkles - handmade jewelry that give back!

Why shop at Gia’s Sparkles Shop?
All jewelry is handmade in Canada, 100% of the net profits (approx. 40% of what you pay) will be donated to a children’s hospital program run by volunteers so it directly benefits children and families, created with quality materials like Sterling Silver affordably priced and not mass produced. A great deal of fundraising jewelry offers one design- we offer many designs, styles and colours.
******************************
I saw first hand how the SickKids Hospital in Toronto changes the lives of families all over the world. My affiliation with this hospital began in 2012. I became a registered donor. Then in 2015 I became an official partner for the SickKids Foundation. Every cent I donate goes to benefit the SickKids Bravery Bead Program. My jewelry is sold at Artisan shows and on-line. I re-opened my Etsy Shop and re-named it Gia's Sparkles because of the sparkle in a child's eyes who gets a Bravery Bead for his/her necklace after each procedure. 100% of the net profits from each sale we be donated to the SickKids Foundation and will directly benefit the Bravery Bead Program.
We package the pieces lovingly in a beautiful blue velvet pouch or silver box and enclose a free anti-tarnish bag to keep your silver looking new. An insert explaining the cause is also included.

***************************************
BRAVERY BEAD PROGRAM from www. sickkids.ca

The Bravery Bead Program allows children who wish to participate, the chance to collect a different bead for each procedure or event while visiting the hospital for treatment. The goal of the program is to make a necklace with colourful beads that represent the unique and special journey of a particular child and to make something that they are proud of and want to share with family and friends. Beads are not given as a reward or something to be earned but rather to represent each child’s individual story through treatment.
The partnership between the Women’s Auxiliary volunteers and the Child Life Specialists is a critical element in the success of the program at SickKids. Volunteers check and shop for supplies, cut and dip the rattail, fill the bead boxes in different areas, and keep the refill boxes stocked for easy access. They along with the Child Life Specialists help patients and parents build necklaces as needed.
Before the program is expanded, a bead legend is designed with new beads to represent the procedures unique to the new area. Some of the beads are exclusive to each areas. For example, “ECMO” and “Pacemaker” are unique to Cardiac; “Beanstalk program” is a bead unique to Transplant. And some beads are general ones – a “holiday” bead for those children who spend a significant holiday in the hospital; a “birthday” bead for someone who has a birthday while in the hospital. Each area has a “bead legend” to describe the beads in that area.
WOW beads are special beads given after a particularly difficult procedure or on a particularly difficult day or perhaps just a first time for accomplishing something as simple as getting out of bed. Each child selects his/her own WOW bead from the drawer.
Please help me support this amazing program!
