Tenerife Pearl joins the AECC in their fight against cáncer
Tenerife Pearl joins the AECC in their fight against cancer with the launch of a new product: the RITA bracelet, available in several colors and ready to buy from retail outlets in Tenerife.
Tenerife Pearl will donate 1euro from each bracelet sold to the fight against cancer.
Tenerife Pearl is an established company located in Tenerife since 1996
Tenerife Pearl invites residents and visitors to the island, to join them in the fight against cancer. In support of this cause, Tenerife Pearl is selling the RITA bracelet in a campaign to raise funds for the Spanish Organization Against Cancer (AECC).
The RITA bracelet was created in honour of Rita Casari, a beloved colleague, who sadly died of cancer in October 2015. Tenerife Pearl will donate 1euro for each RITA bracelet sold. The RITA bracelet will be available from all retail outlets as well as the online store.
Charlotte Brengman, marketing manager, says: “We are proud to support the excellent work of the AECC in our third campaign with them. Honouring our colleague in this way and knowing that we are helping to raise awareness as well as funds for two fantastic projects keeps us motivated. We are currently involved in two projects, one in Tenerife and one in Gran Canaria, which our sister brand is also participating in.”
The proceeds from sales in Tenerife will be used for a local swimming programme for women recovering from breast cancer and in Gran Canaria for a winter camp which will be held in the south of the island for children aged 15 to 17 who are suffering or recovering from cancer.
“The more people that show their support for causes like this leads to a greater community awareness. This fundraising project is helping to improve the lives of people living with cancer, as well as those whose lives have been affected by the disease. It’s great to be working again with Tenerife Pearl “says Carlota Cobo AECC.
The RITA campaign will run until next July and bracelets can be purchased for 16.50 euros (RRP) from Tenerife Pearl stores located in Armeñime, CC Parque Santiago 6, Las Americas, Candelaria, Loro Parque, Puerto de la Cruz and from the online store.
Tenerife Pearl opened its first store in the Canary Islands in 1996 offering an original concept specialising in pearl jewellery. From the outset it has received a fantastic public response and has become the leading company in its sector.
Currently there are six stores in Tenerife employing 63 professionals.
