Charms for charity
Known for her roles in MTV’s The Hills and Made in Chelsea, Stephanie has collaborated with the jewellery brand MeMe London on this fundraising project, selecting Little Princess Trust as her chosen charity.
She came up with three different designs, priced at £35-40 each, or a stack of three is available for £100, which she is pictured wearing here. Ten pounds from the sale of each bracelet will go to the Hove-based charity to help them provide free wigs and support to children who have lost their hair due to cancer treatment or from alopecia.
Stephanie says of her designs, “After many weeks spent working on designs I selected my favourite three. First the elephant because elephants with their trunk up are known to bring good luck, next the evil eye, it is a century old symbol spanning many cultures thought to bring protection against intentional and unintentional jealousy and ill wishes from others, and finally the LOVE heart because love conquers all. My wish is that this stack brings all who wear it love, luck, and protection”
Supporting the Little Princess Trust
Whilst Stephanie can use her fame to boost support and awareness for the Little Princess Trust, there are a number of ways for anyone to get involved with the charity.
In order to help them make high quality wigs for children who are balding due to medical conditions, they accept donations of both money and hair!
Hair donations can be sent in to the charity by following a few simple steps. Hair is accepted from anyone whose hair is more than 7 inches long, in good condition and is of a natural colour – grey, unnaturally coloured and afro hair donations cannot be accepted at present. Afro wigs are a particularly specialist field so the Little Princess Trust buys these in directly rather than having them made from donations. All the wigs made for and bought by the charity are then given free of charge to children with hair loss.
Whilst donating hair is becoming increasingly popular, to cover the production and purchasing costs of these wigs, which is roughly £300 per real hair wig, the charity also encourages monetary donations. These can now be made via PayPal by calling Little Princess Trust HQ on 01432 363 505 to arrange.
