Our Charity by Design division is excited to partner with RIPTA for their “Stuff A Bus with Love” drive! Bring a new, unused teddy bear in its original packaging to the RIPTA bus parked outside Alex and Ani Cranston. The first 200 people to donate will receive a special gift from Alex and Ani! Each teddy bear will be donated to a child at Hasbro Children’s Hospital as we celebrate the hospital’s 20th anniversary!

RIPTA and representatives from all participating partners will drive on a RIPTA bus to the Bank of America Skating Center on February 14, 2014 for the 6:00 PM drop off of the teddy bears to the Hasbro Children’s Hospital family and friends attending the 20th birthday party.

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 not only marks the hospital’s 20th anniversary, but the 3rd anniversary of its relationship with the department.
