Trend Watch Wednesday: {Shop for a Cause}

I don’t know about y’all, but one of my favorite ways to spice up an outfit is to accessorize it with fun jewelry! I’m positively addicted to finding cool new pieces to add to my ever-growing collection. Well girls, this season will be no different for moi. I’m already spending way too much time on websites like Stella & Dot lately, swooning over the gorgeous pieces from their fall collection and trying to decide which ones I want to buy first!

After the Rain Bracelet
Estate Chandelier Earrings and Aurora Cocktail Ring

Pegasus Necklace

Jacqueline Necklace
Renegade Cluster Bracelet
 Thankfully, I’ve waited until this week to make my purchases since I just found out that I can shop for a great cause this week!

But first, a little backstory:

My friend Christy’s daughter McKenzie was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis, a.k.a. CF, at only 4 days old and since then, has been spending 2 hours a day doing treatments and taking over 30 pills EVERY DAY. I don’t know about y’all, but just taking a vitamin every day is hard for me! Can you imagine? Anyway, to help McKenzie and the thousands of others dealing with CF in their fights, Great Strides hosts walks around the country to raise funds that go toward Cystic Fibrosis research. Christy and McKenzie have gotten their own team together for a Great Strides Walk on August 27th at the Bentonville Plaza, (click here if you live in NWA and are interested in joining their team!)

Meet McKenzie...isn't she presh?!

In addition to the Great Strides walks, several other individuals are pitching in to help out! On Monday night, Christy told me about a fundraiser that a Stella & Dot stylist friend of hers was hosting for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Right now, Christy’s friend Sherri is donating a portion of the sales on her website to the CFF and McKenzie’s Walk Team. It’s simple, you can order online and your items will be shipped directly to you in just a few days. McKenzie’s team has a huge goal this year of raising $20,000 for the CFF; any amount will surely help out.

If you’re like me and have jewelry running out your ears, (ha!), you can also donate directly to McKenzie’s team on her team page. Any donation to the CFF is tax deductible and 90% goes DIRECTLY to research of Cystic Fibrosis…that almost unheard of for a non-profit organization.

For any of your readers who go to the Team Mackenzie page and make a donation, for every $10 you donate, Christy will put your name in a drawing for a Stella & Dot necklace (you can put that you came from A Blonde Ambition blog on the comment portion of your donation.) The Stella & Dot necklace up for grabs is this beauty, the Claire:

If you would like to place a Stella & Dot order in support if CFF, you can go to Sherri’s website anytime and enter her name, Sherri Rice, as your Hostess. As always, your order will ship directly to you in just 2-3 days!

So what are we all waiting for? I’m off to make my purchase right now and help out McKenzie and others battling CF at the same time!
