Ornaments for a Cause

February is American Heart Month as proclaimed by the American Heart Association. What better way to raise awareness of heart disease than by purchasing a commemorative ornament? You can buy a heart-shaped glass ornament with the words “love, live, give” engraved in gold letters. This ornament is suspended from a gold cord and makes an excellent decoration for a Christmas tree as well as a wall decoration. The ornament can be purchased by going to heart.org. This decoration is designed by the American Heart Association, and proceeds from the sale of it will go to help fight heart disease, especially in women.

If you’d also like to help raise awareness of breast cancer, there are a number of ornaments that can help you do this. These range from pink glass balls with the classic pink ribbons draped over the top of them to small pink ribbons with a pair of angel’s wings. You can also choose a tall pink angel hung from a thin white ribbon. Some ornaments come with their own stand so you can display them on your desk or countertop. An example of this is a white glass ball with the words “believe hope pray” written in pink letters. Breast cancer awareness ornaments are offered by the Pink Ribbon Shop and can be purchased at the Pink Ribbon Shop.
