Jewelry For A Smile


Ibtissama is one of my favorite organizations in Lebanon. And with good reason: their mission is to brighten the days of children stuck in hospital beds, what could be kinder than this? If you want to learn more about what they do, swing by the interview that first introduced me to their Clown Doctors ;)

Now Ibtissama is going to make you or someone you love smile too. They just launched a Jewelry line in collaboration with MAC DESIGN:

Jewelry for a cause: the Launch of the Ibtissama collection by Mac Design  
Ibtissama’s mission is to bring a much-needed smile to the faces of hospitalized children in Lebanon. Ibtissama’s Clowns Doctors were able to reach and make 13,130 bed visits to hospitalized children; most of them suffer from cancer and other chronic illnesses. The four hospitals that Ibtissama project currently covers are Rafic Hariri University Hospital, the American University of Beirut Medical Center including St. Jude affiliated Children Cancer Center of Lebanon (CCCL), Hotel-Dieu de France and Makassed General Hospital. Ibtissama hopes to widen the reach to other hospitals with the increased support of the Lebanese Society. As part of sustaining its activities in Lebanon for its fourth year running, Mac Design partnered up with Ibtissama to create the full range Ibtissama jewelry collection. 100% of the proceeds will benefit Ibtissama's mission. The collection can be found at all Mac Design branches. 
For further information you can call the project coordinator Ms. Sara Kabbani, Smile Foundation, 01-801264, Mobile: 03-915806, email:

The designs are very cool and they would make for perfect gifts this Christmas or on any other occasion:

Necklace and bracelet are at 30 US Dollars only and ring and earrings at 45 US Dollars only. It is worthwhile noting 100% of proceeds are donated to Ibtissama.
