Feel Good Sunday: Kristen's Custom Creations Gives Back

Many of my readers already know that each month I select a charity or foundation that I create a necklace for and donate a portion of proceeds to the group for each sale. The donations do not stop at the end of the month but continue through out the year. The main reason I do this is to raise awareness and also raise funds for these groups.

The featured group for November is The Leukemia and Lymphoma Foundation. The reason why I selected Run, Bike, Swim is because this group hosts Marathons and Triathlons to raise money and awareness. If you are interested in participating in a race please visit Team In Training

Product details:

The "Run,Bike,Swim" necklace has three 5/8 inch 925 Sterling Silver Discs that are NICKEL FREE. The charms hang on a 18 inch sterling silver bead ball chain. (If you would prefer a 16 inch chain please just leave a note in the note to seller section)

Artist Note: The letters on this necklace have been hand stamped one at a time, I do not use machines. The letters will not line up perfectly and this should not be considered a flaw but part of the charm. The letters have been blackened/antiqued and slightly brushed to make the letters stand out. This piece has an aged appearance and will appear slightly tarnished but rest assured it has been given a good polish and all by hand.

To view the entire hand stamped collection please visit Kristen's Custom Creations.

If you have a group or are aware of a group that benefits children please leave me a comment. I am looking for a special group for December.

You know we are donating all the time to the children's memorial hospital www.childrensmemorial.org/
we also donate to the St.Jude Children's Research and I think over hubby's business some donations go to the sponsor a child, I'll have to ask him the exact name of Charity.

That is so good that you do :) and I love the new piece.

it may be too late, but you could feature the cystic fibrosis foundation. cf is the most common inherited disease, with no cure. the average age of survival is 35. 1 in about 25 caucasians are carriers (who knew?). it affects the lungs and digestive system. but what kills these precious kids is the damage done to the lungs. you can get more info at cff.org or you can ask me... my son has it.

a great thing for you to put on the necklace is "breathe"
