We encourage your support of these programs that benefit Special Olympics Kansas:
Alex and Ani’s “Power of Unity” bangle
Alex and Ani, a made in America lifestyle brand and producer of jewelry, and Special Olympics have partnered together through their Charity by Design division to create a new bangle. The “Power of Unity” expandable wire bangle is available in Rafaelian Silver and Rafaelian gold and will be sold in Alex and Ani retail stores nationwide, online at Alexandani.com, and at partnering retail accounts, beginning November 24, 2014.
Alex and Ani will donate to Special Olympics 20% of the purchase price from each Power of Unity Charm sold between November 2014 and December 2015, with a minimum donation of $25,000.
The bangle design features the Special Olympics symbol which is an expression of how the Special Olympics movement reveals the champion in all of us, inspiring achievement, change, revelation and community in all who connect with Special Olympics. On the other side of the charm, the Special Olympics Athlete Oath appears, “Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.”
Finish Line Holiday Campaign
Finish Line, a leading athletic shoe retailer has again chosen Special Olympics as the beneficiary of the Finish Line Youth Foundation's annual in-store and online holiday customer and employee donation campaign. This campaign is being held in Finish Line stores nationwide from November 7- December 31, 2014. All funds raised will be donated to Special Olympics.
