Yoga bags designed by celebrities such as Courteney Cox Arquette, Martina McBride and Patricia Arquette are up for grabs at eBay Giving Works from May 5-15, 2008, to raise funds for women battling breast cancer.
Swarovski has partnered with The Libby Ross Foundation and celebrities to create the decorative yoga bags using Swarovski jewels, with the proceeds going to help the Foundation’s yoga program.
The Libby Ross Foundation offers the “OM Yoga Program” to women who have had, or are undergoing surgery, radiation or chemotherapy for breast cancer in a bid to promote healing and a sense of well being. The program helps women get back in touch with their bodies through breathing techniques and gentle movements.
Other celebrities stretching out their creative talents include Melora Hardin, Kim Raver, Leah Remini, Ali Landry, Brooke Burke, Nancy O'Dell, Hoda Kotb, Debi Mazar, Cheryl Hines, and three mother-daughter teams, Susan Sarandon and her daughter Eva Amurri, Miley Cyrus and her mother Trish Cyrus and Hayden Panettiere and her mother Lesley Panettiere.
The world’s leader in cut crystal is also donating $75,000 to The Libby Ross Foundation’s OM Yoga Program from the sales of its pink ribbon charm and pink heart necklace, which can be purchased at retailers or online.
“Swarovski’s gift this year will help us bring the Yoga Program to more women than ever before. We can’t think of a better way to celebrate Mother’s Day — helping bring peace and strength to mothers, daughters and sisters everywhere who are fighting this disease,” said Lori Ross, co-founder of the Libby Ross Foundation. Ms Ross lost her mother, Elizabeth “Libby” Ross, to breast cancer on July 24, 1998.
