Crystal Ribbon of Life Fundraiser at TGH
November 28th and December 13th

Here's another great fundraising event at Toronto General Hospital that provides an opportunity to pick up a gift for yourself or others as the holiday season approaches.

In an effort to support the Multi Organ Transplant Program at the Toronto General Hospital, A Glitter of Hope* has designed a jewelry series called Crystal Ribbons of Life to benefit the Transplant Fund For Excellence. Some of the featured items include: the Charms of Life collection, a jeweled ribbon with emerald green crystals that can be clasped to a bracelet, cell phone, bookmark or keychain, and custom-made “Life” bracelets that allow transplant patients, donors and family members to show their support for an important cause.

The Crystal Ribbon of Life series aims to raise awareness about the Multi Organ Transplant Program and help celebrate the Gift of Life.

DATES: Wednesday, November 28th and Thursday, December 13th
TIME: 9am to 5pm (both days)
LOCATION: Toronto General Hospital, Norman Urquhart Building Lobby (University Ave entrance - take stairs to 1st floor)

*About A Glitter of Hope
A Glitter of Hope is a jewelry initiative that takes a creative hobby and turns it into a gift of hope for worthy causes. Co-founded by two long time friends, Joanne Guarnaccia and Anna Searles (a breast cancer survivor), A Glitter of Hope features the Crystal Ribbon of Hope box; an assortment of coloured Swarovski crystal ribbon charms that represent many health-based causes, such as cancer and transplantation. The crystal charms are elegantly designed for cell phone danglers, key chains, bookmarks, bracelets and much more. Joanne and Anna personally design and handcraft these and other accessories using a multitude of quality beads including Swarovski crystals, natural stones, glass, and sterling silver.

Aiming to bring the gift of hope into the lives of many, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of A Glitter of Hope products go directly towards charitable causes.
