At Special Olympics, we’ve seen first hand what the power of sport can do for an athlete. It really is life changing. We’ve watched people score their first goal, run across the finish line, and nail a perfect routine. The smile on their face is indescribable.
These are just a few of the stories Special Olympics helps creates. But we can only do it with your help. And for the rest of this year, your gift will be TRIPLE matched, so now you can help three times as many athletes find the joy of sports!
But you have to hurry, this triple-match campaign only lasts until midnight on Dec. 31. Don’t miss your chance to triple the good you can do, especially since your gift to Special Olympics is 100% tax deductible.
Don’t miss you chance to help an athlete get off the bench and into the game! Click here to donate today!
Special Olympics has once again partnered with Alex & Ani to bring you the “Power of Unity” bangle that will benefit Special Olympics!
Alex and Ani, a made in America lifestyle brand and producer of jewelry, and Special Olympics have partnered together through their Charity by Design division to create a new bangle. The “Power of Unity” expandable wire bangle is available in Rafaelian Silver and Rafaelian gold and will be sold in Alex and Ani retail stores nationwide, online at Alexandani.com, and at partnering retail accounts.
The bangle design features the Special Olympics symbol which is an expression of how the Special Olympics movement reveals the champion in all of us, inspiring achievement, change, revelation and community in all who connect with Special Olympics. On the other side of the charm, the Special Olympics Athlete Oath appears, “Let me win. But if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.”
Alex & Ani will donate to Special Olympics 20% of the purchase price from each Power of Unity Charm.
