Frette Partners with Same Sky to Help Children of Rwanda
August 31, 2011,
NEW YORK-Frette has teamed up with Same Sky, a trade-not-aid jewelry initiative benefiting HIV-positive women in Africa, to provide help to the children of Rwanda.
For every set of sheets purchased in Frette's store on Madison Avenue here, Frette will donate a mattress to a child in Rwanda. The two organizations will kick off this initiative with a Fashions Night Out event at Frette's store on Sept. 8 from 6-11 p.m., at which shoppers will be invited to purchase Same Sky's signature hand-blown, glass-beaded jewelry made by artisans in Rwanda.
