BIRMINGHAM – Children’s of Alabama and Kendra Scott have collaborated for a September giveback event in honor of pediatric cancer awareness month.
Throughout August, four patients treated at the Alabama Center for Childhood Cancers and Blood Disorders (ACCCBD) at Children’s created customized necklaces at Kendra Scott’s Color Bar via Zoom. For the month of September, these four unique necklaces will be available for purchase in-store at the Birmingham Kendra Scott location and 20% of the proceeds from each necklace sold will be donated back to Children’s of Alabama.
“Our patient designers were so excited to be part of the virtual design process,” said Abigail Daugherty, community development coordinator at Children’s of Alabama. “Kendra Scott not only cares about supporting Children’s, but also about creating an experience for our patients. They have found multiple times to partner with us throughout the year, including dedicating an entire month to give back to the hospital, and we are so appreciative of their support.”
In addition to the month-long fundraiser, on Sept. 26 and 27, Kendra Scott locations in Birmingham and Huntsville will donate 20% of the sale from all purchases back to Children’s when customers mention Children’s of Alabama in-store or use GIVEBACK8572 at checkout on kendrascott.com.
"Giving back to our community is at the heart of Kendra Scott,” said Andrea Knight, marketing and philanthropic manager, Southeast for Kendra Scott. “Last year we were able to give back over $6,500 to Children's of Alabama through our September partnership, and we are excited to partner again this year!
