Rachel Bilson designs for charity

March 1, 2010

I’m so sad that I didn’t come across this sooner, but I here it is regardless: People Online had a small article on Rachel Bilson’s charitable work sponsored by InStyle  magazine which you can read in full here and InStyle’s here. The photo below is of the bracelet that allowed for this actress and fashion designer to add jewelry designer to her resume as well.

Personally I think this is a beautiful piece, but more than admiring her for producing an inspired accessory, I admire her for participating in something so fruitful and benefiting of others, in this case students in Johannesburg, South Africa and Bostwana for CIDA (Community and Individual Development Association) Foundation’ s CIDA City Campus.

As late as I am on this scoop, you can still purchase this bracelet through this link right here. Here’s an excerpt from InStyle’s piece on Rachel Bilson that gives you a pretty thorough understanding of the project she’s supporting.

Last December, Bilson traveled to Botswana and South Africa to report on the improvements diamond mining has made in the lives of the people there. Wanting to do what she could to help, Bilson created this bracelet, sold exclusively through InStyle.com. It retails for $100, with $20 from each sale going to the non-profit Diamond Empowerment Fund (DEF). Money raised will help purchase additional student housing for the CIDA City Campus in Johannesburg, Africa’s first practically free university.

Also here’s a link to see a short video narrated by Rachel talking about her part and experience being involved in such a wonderful cause. Enjoy!
