Earlier this week, fine jeweler Gabriel & Co. hosted a shopping event with Afghan Hands, where all proceeds from the night were donated to Afghan Hands and the women supported by this organization.
VIPs and celebrities were in attendance, including Emmy Winners Claire Danes and Cynthia Nixon, as well as Good Morning America Anchor Amy Robach, Opera Singer Isabel Leonard, Actress Amy Hargreaves and Fashion Designer Nicole Miller.
The event was part of Gabriel & Co.’s charitable efforts through their Gabriel Love Foundation. Gabriel & Co. jewelry and Afghan Hands embroidered shawls were sold during the event to raise money. The shawls are embroidered by the Afghan widows effected by Afghan Hands. Afghan Hands is a nonprofit organization that teaches skills to help Afghan widows gain independence, literacy, and livable wages. These women learn to create embroidered shawls and scarves, while also attending classes. For most of these women, this is the only way they are educated.
Select Gabriel & Co. pieces will continue to be sold on the Afghan Hands website with a 25% discount. All proceeds will benefit Afghan Hands.
