Swarovski Crystal has partnered with The Libby Ross Foundation to help empower women battling breast cancer through the charity’s yoga program.
Creative celebrities, including three mother-daughter teams, have joined the cause to raise funds for this unique program by decorating yoga bags with jewels. The bags will be listed through May 15 on eBay through eBay Giving Works, the dedicated program for charity listings.
Celebrity mother-daughter teams include Susan Sarandon and her daughter, Eva Amurri; Miley Cyrus and her mother, Trish Cyrus (see Miley’s design, right); and Heroes star Hayden Panettiere and her mother, Lesley Panettiere. Other celeb decorators include Courtney Cox Arquette, Martina McBride, Patricia Arquette and Cheryl Hines.
The goal of The Libby Ross Foundation’s OM Yoga Program is to promote healing and a sense of well-being for breast cancer survivors. The program provides support for women who have had or are undergoing surgery, radiation or chemotherapy for breast cancer. In conjunction with OM Yoga Center in New York, the program empowers women to get back in touch with their bodies through breathing techniques and gentle movements.
“Swarovski’s gift this year will help us bring the yoga program to more women than ever before,” says Lori Ross, cofounder of the foundation. She founded it in 1999 in loving memory of her mother, Elizabeth “Libby” Ross, who lost her battle with breast cancer on July 24, 1998.
