Give a Gift and Help LLS

Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, LLS and 2 more...

Sarah Park and Lindsay Drew-Coulter's paths crossed through a shared interest in fighting blood cancers. Sarah, 17, being treated for acute lymphoblastic leukemia, began attending LLS events in the summer of 2013 to raise awareness and help others. She met Lindsay, vice chair of the Board of Trustees for the Central Pennsylvania Chapter of LLS, and they became fast friends.

A fan of lifestyle brand, Alex and Ani, and its philanthropic division, Charity by Design, Lindsay bought the new Lighthouse charm bangle as soon as it was launched in September 2013. Knowing Sarah was undergoing her last inpatient chemotherapy treatment, she also purchased one for her as a symbol of hope and perseverance. Sarah progressed with treatment while being Girl of the Year and went on to become Alex and Ani's National Honored Hero for the 2014 Light the Night Walk. Her treatment will continue another year and the Lighthouse bangle will always be a reminder to stay hopeful and positive. Read their blog post.

With holiday shopping season upon us, the symbolic bangle is available at Alex and Ani retail stores nationwide, online at alexandani.com, and at many partnering retailers. 20 percent of the purchase price of the bangle benefits LLS. Sales have already brought in more than $200,000 to LLS this year!

Shopping online at AmazonSmile is another way to support blood cancer research as 0.5% of the price will be donated to LLS if you set it up as your designated charity.

You'll find LLS-branded apparel, accessories, totes, and gifts at the LLS storefront with at least 25 percent of each sale going to LLS. New items include iPhone covers, a snowflake ornament, headbands, pashmina scarves, and a blood drop pin. You can also shop Lands' End or buy greeting cards and help LLS.
