A dear friend, Jennie Ann Friese (Proulx), 36, of Bristol, RI departed this world on Wednesday, November 25, 2020, following a long and courageous battle with Mantle cell lymphoma. Jennie, a lover of accessories and fellow small business owner of A Girl in Pearls, loved the holidays and we are using this opportunity to do some good in her name and to honor her bright spirit and charitable nature.
100% of the proceeds of this donation will be used to "Spread the Pearls" and be used to acquire and donate winter accessories, to those less fortunate, in the name of our dear friend Jennie. Your donation will go to purchasing new scarves, hats, mittens, socks, and other cold weather garments to donate to local Massachusetts & Rhode Island Organizations for homeless and those in need. Follow the #SpreadthePearls to follow our journey in the name of Jennie Friese. Thank you for your donation!
In addition, 10% of all our profits from now until January 9th, 2021 will be donated in honor of Jennie to the The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society® (LLS).
