Alex and Ani, Inc., has partnered with Plan International USA to create the “Because I am a Girl” Expandable Wire Bangle.  Twenty percent (20%) of the sale of each bangle, affordably priced at $28.00, will go to Plan International USA to benefit the – Because I am a Girl – Initiative.

Each bangle is accompanied by a Meaning Card that states,   ‘Because I am a girl, I am born to nurture.  I am born to love.  I am instinctual and perfectly in tune with nature.  I am born to achieve.  I am capable. I am brave.  I am born to inspire others, and I am a blessing to the world.’  The “Because I am a Girl” Expandable Wire Bangle is being launched to coincide with the commemoration of International Women’s Day.  It will be available at all Alex and Ani retail locations, online at, and at select authorized retailers beginning Today, Thursday, March 8, 2012.

According to Nicki Castonguay, Vice President of Alex and Ani’s Charity by Design division, “This effort is particularly special to us because our company was the unique creation of our Owner and Designer Carolyn Rafaelian, an inspirational female entrepreneur.  Alex and Ani represents the strength of many women who contribute their talents on a daily basis.  We are extremely excited to launch the ‘Because I am a Girl’ Bangle for an organization that empowers females of all ages to contribute positively to their communities.  All young women deserve to be dreamers and doers.”

Join Alex and Ani as we make a difference, think globally and act locally!! Make every day a day to appreciate and honor womanhood while doing your best to ensure that the future for our girls is safe and rewarding.
