Belle-issmo…

Camilla Belle. My other favorite fashionista!!

Here is she, looking casual-chic. She was in California hanging out with some Spanish tennis player…but I don’t really care too much about that…

I’m more concerned with her outfit!! Even though its simple, I love the top, the jeans and her simple gladiator shoes 🙂 And I love her bracelets!! I always see her wearing them…

I did some research on them and discovered that the bracelets are in fact for a charity called H.E.L.P.

According to their web site:

H.E.L.P is a non-profit organization established in Malawi, Africa that is dedicated to making a difference by giving children hope, education, love, protection and a chance to make their aspirations and dreams become a reality.

WHAT LOVE MEANS…… These three simple words are reflected by thousands of children living in rural Malawi, Africa (the seventh poorest country in the world) where H.E.L.P., in conjunction with the community, has impacted their lives. H.E.L.P.’s mission is to positively impact lives of orphaned children and young adults living with famine, drought, extreme poverty, illiteracy, and diseases like HIV/AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis, all of which can be treated with proper health care and education, if available. The mission is to give hope, education, love and protection to these children and young adults, beginning with building a school and medical clinic.

About The Panthera Collection

“As a designer, it’s rare to find an opportunity to be able to express my passion and raise awareness to better the lives of children” – Lori Leavitt.

Camilla and H.E.L.P. have partnered with the Lori Leavitt Collection to create the re-launch of Leavitt’s Panthera Collection, a jewelry collection dedicated to H.E.L.P.’s “What Love Means” campaign that is giving 100% of its profits back to the children of Malawi.

The Panthera Collection, inspired by a vintage lion cufflink from the 1860’s, has been designed into necklaces, bracelets, rings, cufflinks and key chains. The collection is created with a 14kt gold lion in each piece. The lion was chosen as a representative of the children of Malawi. It is symbolic of the courage the children in Malawi must endure on a day-to-day basis when faced with endless issues of poverty and illness.

**The bracelets start off at $40.00.

I’m actually thinking of buying the bracelets.  It’s a win-win situation – you help donate to a charity and you shop.

I’m definitely going to look more into the charity and the collection.  I’ll keep you updated 🙂

Have a happy tomorrow,
