Donna Karan receives ShelterBox USA Awareness Bracelet designed by Barb McSweeney
The Official ShelterBox USA Awareness Bracelet, designed by reknowned jewelry designer Barb McSweeney, is presented to fashion icon Donna Karan in Washington DC at an event honoring her as their 'humanitarian of the year'.
Barb McSweeney's gift to fashion icon Donna Karan is finally presented in Washington DC on February 3rd, 2011 through sleet, snow and ice.
Mrs. McSweeney, Sarasota's own jewelry designer, who designed the original exclusive awareness bracelet for ShelterBox USA, was finally able to have photo confirmation from executive director of SBUSA Veronica B. Miller that her gift was indeed presented. The planning of this gift took shape back in the summer of 2010. The globe trotting bracelet (having previously traveled to England and New York to be presented,) was finally given during SB USA's celebration honoring Donna Karan as their Humanitarian of the Year for all that her foundation has done to help their mission.
“This is how I can help raise awareness... one bracelet at a time! I am thrilled,” says Barb. “Not only is it a beautiful piece of jewelry, but the funds generated from purchases off ShelterBox USA's website go to help so many in need around the world.”
Outside of Barb's retail line of innovative jewelry, she can be found “Raising Awareness with Style,” actively reaching out to partner with worthwhile causes near and far.
