September 2017 - The Canadian Alopecia Areata Foundation


September 01, 2017

September is Alopecia Awareness Month

We have been personally touched by this Auto-Immune Disorder as our founders' daughter, Kate Jolie, has been living with Alopecia for the past 4 years. She was diagnosed with it at 2 years old when she started to lose large patches of hair and she currently is completely bald, has lost her eyebrows and is beginning to lose her eyelashes.

Alopecia is the loss or the absence of hair. In simple terms, the immune system, for unknown reasons, attacks the hair root and causes hair loss. At 6 years old, she is already aware of the fact that she looks "different", and as a mother, Nicole is on a mission to bring awareness of this disease, as well as raise funds to find a cure for it. Although this Auto-Immune Disorder isn't life-threatening, it's VERY difficult on a girls' self-esteem and self-image in a society that puts so much weight on beauty and outward appearances!

A portion of ALL Sweet {Jolie} sales throughout the month of September will be donated directly to the Canadian Alopecia Areata Foundation​.

Once again, Kristen at Kemba Designs has outdone herself with our {Love Project} Jewlery Pieces for the month of September. After learning that Kate's favorite animal is the {Owl}, she came up with a few different options, with 100% of the sale of these {Jolies} going directly to the Canadian Alopecia Areata Foundation. Choose between a Bracelet in 2 Colours or a Dainty Necklace in 2 Colour Options.
