The ancient Mayans portrayed the monkey as an openhearted being that was ever in a state of creative and joyful wonder. Standing for Playful, Energetic and Kind, the Monkey Bangle embodies a spirited creature that is curious about the world and is extremely outgoing.

Charity by Design’s partnership with Roger Williams Park Zoo and the choice of a Monkey Charm reminds us to stay socially conscious and to be dedicated to the greater good of the community.

20% of all Alex and Ani sales from the Monkey Charm, with a minimum donation of $20,000, will benefit Roger Williams Park Zoo to provide science and environmental education programs to more than 30,000 children from pre-school through high school.

The Monkey Charm Bangle is $28 and is available in Russian Gold and Russian Silver and can be purchased in Alex and Ani stores, on and at select retailers today. Enjoy!


Charity By Design is the heart and soul of Alex and Ani. Carolyn works closely with organizations in creating a unique design that embodies the message and reflects the beauty of each charitable organization. We believe profoundly that people everywhere are anxious to participate in creating change and empowering those who so clearly need assistance. By allowing consumers to enter the charitable world through their purchases, we believe a new generation of philanthropists will emerge.
