This past weekend wrapped up our “Stuff A Bus with Love” drive in conjunction with RIPTA and we are awestruck with the results. Thanks to our amazing fans, we collected over 800 teddy bears for children attending the 20th birthday party for Hasbro Children’s HospitalRIPTA and representatives from all participating partners will drive on a RIPTA bus to the party to distribute the bears to the children.

We were happy to partner with RIPTA for this wonderful cause to bring happiness and positive energy to children!

Hasbro Children’s Hospital has been a partner of Alex and Ani’s Charity by Design since August 2011 with the creation of the HERO Bangle. 2014 marks both the hospital’s 20th anniversary and the 3rd anniversary of our relationship.



Event Date: Friday, February 14, 2014
Where: Hasbro Children’s Hospital 20th Birthday Party, Bank of America Skating Center, Providence, RI.
Time: 6:00 PM–7:00 PM




We received a surprise when Allen Martel, Store Manager, and Joe Ferreira, District Manager, of Shaw’s Supermarkets dropped off 75 teddy bears on January 12, 2014! They collected the bears after hearing our radio ad announcing our participation. We are in awe of their generosity and truly touched by their embodiment of positive energy!
