The 11th bracelet allows retailers to partner will local charities and is being sold locally at Attachments Jewelry and Sage Boutique. Chavez for Charity donates 25 percent of the gross profits of all bracelets sold at Attachments Jewelry directly to Girls on the Run of Hunterdon, Bucks and Warren Counties. In addition, Attachments Jewelry matches Chavez’s donation.
