Blackhawks Convention

She Beads & He Beads are right in the center of all the Blackhawks action at the 7th Annual Blackhawks Convention at the Hilton Chicago on South Michigan Avenue. Although there was no Stanley Cup this year, the Blackhawks are celebrating the end of a great season with their huge fan base! Over ten-thousand dedicated Blackhawks fans swarm the Hilton to snap pictures and receive autographs from Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane, and the like. She Beads & He Beads are thrilled to be part of all the excitement. Since receiving the local licensing to use the coveted headdress logo on our clay beads, we have created some fan favorites: the Blackhawks key fob, Blackhawks post earrings, and of course the Blackhawks earth bracelet. The booth was of course filled with our very own handmade jewelry and designs as well as so many great fans. Next season we are looking forward to seeing everyone again! Thank you for the support Chicago- Go Hawks!

Joining forces with the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition.

In March this year, I had the pleasure to attend the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition (NOCC) Conference in Las Vegas, NV. Earlier in the year we entered in a working agreement, in which She Beads & He Beads Company will create Ovarian Awareness products through our Charity Bead work. So Step 1, go to Las Vegas and meet the faces behind this cutting-edge foundation and introduce them to our Ovarian Awareness bracelet (see bracelet picture below).

Step 2. Spend 3 days interacting with survivors, patients, doctors, NOCC staff,  family and friends of their dear loved ones who either are/were dealing with Ovarian cancer. Within the first few hours of the opening night gathering, I was taken back by the amount of positive energy, smiles, strength, just overall love in the room. I have worked in the charitable fundraising aspect of our company for some time, but this organization was different...much different. Everyone in the room knew one another, and they all took me under their wing introducing me to every face. Sharing stories both past/present, learning the in's and out's of Ovarian Cancer, sharing the story of She Beads and our role with the NOCC, it was a wonderful experience shared by all. It was sad to say goodbye. But I have a job to do, and I needed to get back to Chicago to start cultivating our role for the NOCC.

Step 3. Well this is not a completed step. I have been working with our staff and our charity coordinator, Tracey, to get these bracelets in the hands of every chapter leader for their networking events, run/walks, luncheons, etc...you name it. We can do it. Why would we not?

So this post will unfortunately stop here, but the work will not. I am not sure what the next step will bring, but it will bring hard work, determination for a better tomorrow. 50% of every Ovarian Cancer bracelet is donated right back to the NOCC.  O YEAH, I almost forgot. Here are the two current bracelets that we are featuring (with more to come). Click here for a better view of the bracelets:

 

Shall you want to learn more about the steps that the NOCC and Dave Barley (CEO of NOCC) are doing for Ovarian Cancer, please check them out at here. We will be with them every step of the way.

 

 

Until next time,

Dancing with Chicago Celebrities – Breast Cancer Fundraiser Event

In March, She Beads was involved in a wonderful event downtown Chicago, the Dancing with Chicago Celebrities ‘One in a Million’ Campaign to support Breast Cancer, hosted by Arthur Murray. We were invited thanks to Dina Bair, a She Beads customer who is the founding member of the One in a Million campaign. She is also an Emmy-winner journalist and current anchor on WGN Midday News. The event was impressive: Chicago celebrities out in style, Professional dancers showcasing dances throughout 100 years of movie magic and the stage set in traditional ballroom style with the glamorous feel of ‘Dancing with the Stars’ complete with Judges and audience participation (yes, we got to dance too!). This year’s winners included:

 
Cortney Hall (WGN Morning News) – the Celebrity Champion
Dan Proft (WLS – AM Radio) – Celebrity MVP (raised the most money of the celebrities)
Drew Nieman (U.S. Equities) – Corporate Challenge Champion
Maggie Zellers (Deloitte Tax LLP) – Corporate Challenge MVP (raised the most money of the corporate sponsors)

 

 

Check out Drew’s photos . Do you see his wrist? He is wearing one of our Breast Cancer Charity Bracelets!

 

  

The event also included a silent auction, live auction and of course … She Beads!

 

If you would like more information about the organization or information on next year’s GALA event, go onto the attached website:  http://amdwcc.org/One_in_A_Million_Effort.html

 

This truly impressive event raised over $100,000 for Breast Cancer research, including our She Beads contribution for all the charity beads sold (remember – 50% of every charity bead sale goes back to the Charity). We have added a small collection of photos of the event for your enjoyment!

 

If you would like to purchase a Breast Cancer Charity Bracelet – go to our Charity section. And, if you would like more information about getting She Beads involved with your charity/organization, please contact me, Tracey. I would love to help support your cause.

 

Enjoy the photos!
