Linked Jewelry – with Designs by Debra Feldman to Benefit CurePSP
Debra writes: “My late husband, Samuel Feldman, was a father, lawyer and avid golfer who was diagnosed with Progressive Supranuclear Palsy in 2003. He was a selfless man who fought silently and loved tremendously. He died June 12, 2007, yet lives on through his sons, Josh and Jon, and me. I selected “can’t measure love” to represent all individuals diagnosed with PSP as well as their caregivers. The courage, strength and love two people share during the progression of the disease cannot be measured."
"For every heart sold, Linked Jewelry will donate 10% of the proceeds from online retail sales to CurePSP - Foundation for PSP | CBD and Related Brain Diseases, so I can stay linked to my best friend. However, since each item is connected to a sentiment and personal story, I felt that we should include 10% of all proceeds from online retail sales to be donated in the collection to help eradicate this disease. Please visit http://www.linkedjewelry.com to see our entire collection.
Barney's Hummingbird Note Card Fundraiser (ongoing)
Barney and Fran Myer are conducting a beautiful note card fundraiser to beneift CurePSP. Barney's story is as follows:
Barney was diagnosed with PSP in 2010. For Barney, his double vision and frame by frame, or "stuttered", visual experience means everything he does and sees requires great concentration and effort. Though not an artist by training, he took photos of hummingbirds that visit his patio in Arizona. With help from his wife, Fran, they were transformed into faded black and white, enlarged and printed on art paper. Barney used Prismacolor pencils to enhance the pictures. His artwork captures the joyful spirit of these amazing little birds.
The cost is $10.00 for a set of 6 cards and 6 envelopes, plus $2.00 for shipping and handling. All proceeds from the sale of these note cards will be donated to CurePSP. To order, please send an email request to email@example.com.
We are unable to upload photos of the beautiful note cards at this time. When you email Fran at the above address, please ask her to send you sample photos of the cards.
