BOSTON – This season, kick off holiday shopping by supporting a good cause with Dana-Farber and the Jimmy Fund's 2012 Holiday Collection of original cards, candles, ornaments, and – new this year – an exclusively-designed Alex and Ani snowflake bracelet. The collection is now available online and in local stores and all proceeds benefit adult and pediatric care and cancer research at Dana-Farber.
The limited-edition Alex and Ani snowflake bracelet is available in gold or silver for $28.
The bangle, exclusively created for the Jimmy Fund, is available at all Paper Store locations, Friends' Corner Gift Shop at Dana-Farber, and at www.Dana-FarberHoliday.org.
The holiday collection's 16 new card designs were created by local artists and Dana-Farber patients, and feature bright and cheerful depictions of winter scenes and décor.
For $19.99 per package, customers receive 20 cards and 21 envelopes. Both cards and envelopes can be imprinted with personal messages or company logos for an additional fee. Also available are photo cards through partner LookLoveSend, as well as e-cards, e-packs, and customized corporate e-cards, which can be created from any Dana-Farber holiday card.
