Alex and Ani

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, 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.
