Raise Money for Your Favorite Charity!

Raise Money for Your Favorite Charity!

I was diagnosed with ocular melanoma in November 2012. One of the first things I did after the treatment of my primary tumor, was to search for more information online. I reached out to one organization called A Cure In Sight and offered to create a website for them. By January 2013, the site was live and I had researched available options for raising money for them. Here is a screenshot of the PuraVida Bracelets fundraising page.

In August 2018, I joined the Pura Vida Bracelets Affiliate Marketing Program, and sold bracelets online from this blog. I donated my profits to the annual Charity Fundraiser by my real estate broker, William Raveis Real Estate of Glastonbury, to benefit the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation and once again, to A Cure In Sight. Earlier this year my profits went to my husband’s fundraising efforts in the 2019 Closer to Free Ride to benefit my hospital, Smilow Cancer Hospital.

Another way to raise money for your favorite charity, without having to join the Affiliate Marketing Program, is to create your very own Pura Vida bracelets! These one-of-a-kind bracelets come in two styles and are completely customizable with the colors that match your charity or school colors or even the colors of the season!

These bracelets are so affordable, they’d even make a great souvenier for attending an event! If your organization is tax exempt, after placing your order just send a quick email to fundraise@puravidabracelets.com with your order number and tax exempt form, and they’ll refund your sales tax! It’s simple to begin! Learn more and order yours today!

Thank You for your Donations!


Thanks to the kindness of friends, family, and even “Anonymous” we just passed the half way mark toward our fund raising goal for the 2019 Closer to Free Ride!

This ride benefits my hospital, Smilow Cancer Hospital and their programs such as Phase One Clinical Trials and the Melanoma Program!

Thank you also to the folks who made a purchase from Pura Vida using my affiliate links as part of my personal fundraising efforts! I donated my commissions today as well!

New PuraVida Affiliate Fundraiser!

New PuraVida Affiliate Fundraiser!

One of the reasons I selected PuraVida as one of my small collection of Affiliate partnerships, is the fact that they support a number of charities through the sale of jewelry from their Charity Collection – where “Every Bracelet Purchased Makes a Difference“!

Starting today and until the Closer to Free Ride in September 2019, I am going to donate my profits from the purchase of anything from PuraVida to my husband Paul Apito’s #CTFRIDE fundraising efforts!

“Pura Vida” means “pure life” in Spanish, a Costa Rican philosophy that encourages the appreciation of life’s simple treasures. Slowing things down, celebrating good fortune, and refusing to take anything for granted embodies this laid back lifestyle. “Pura Vida” means living life to the fullest. It’s more than just a saying… it’s a lifestyle.

I’m even donating from the SALE products so make sure to check them out first!

UPDATE April 2019 – I got my fundraising order and these bracelets are so cute!

One of the primary reasons I selected Pura Vida as a company I wanted to affiliate with, is their long-standing commitment to raising money for Charity.

This graphic hit my Facebook wall today and I think it is so pretty, as well as raising money for a very worthy cause. Just click the photo to learn more!
