Bracelets of hope
Lyne Shackleton (left) and Dava McKay model one of the hottest-selling items for the woman who has both good fashion sense and a good heart. These made-in-Bali bracelets are ethically-made by native artisans who receive a decent wage for their work and they are also the latest fundraiser item for Ovarian Cancer Canada at $10 each with a portion of the proceeds going back to the artisans and the remainder helping to fund research on ovarian cancer. Shackleton, who has making the cause for ovarian cancer research a familiar topic in her home town of Clarence-Rockland, raised more than $2800 alone last year for Ovarian Cancer Canada through her own sales of these bracelets. That is in addition to some of the other fundraising and promotion projects she has organized or taken part in for ovarian cancer reserach.
