Feeling like a princess is a dream for many women, whether it is on the red carpet or in everyday life. Gemma Flynn had this opportunity when she wore one-of-a-kind ear jackets at Richie McCaw’s Chasing Great premiere.
Now the Black Stick player is auctioning these beautiful earrings to help a foundation close to many New Zealander’s hearts.
“I think Breast Cancer is an important cause to donate to as everyone in NZ knows someone that has been affected by it. It is the number one cancer for Women in NZ, 3000 Women are diagnosed every year and there are over 600 deaths annually. These figures can’t be ignored and awareness and prevention is key as well as raising money for greater research. ,” Gemma said.
“People should bid for these earrings as the whole amount will go directly to the NZ Breast Cancer Foundation, every bit counts and raises awareness for this great cause. Also I believe the earrings are a stunning design so the buyer can enjoy wearing some beautiful jewellery.”
Every day 8 women are diagnosed with breast cancer and around 600 women die every year. The Breast Cancer Foundation is there for every women, from helping educate women about the signs and ensuring they get checked to helping the support and care for the women who are diagnosed.
Charmaine said the idea to donate the earrings arose during the design process after she spoke with Gemma about their shared support for the New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation.
“It’s a very special opportunity to support the community of women and families affected by breast cancer and get hold of a beautiful piece of New Zealand sport and film history.”
The earrings are on Trade Me today with a $1 reserve and will stay there until Monday 3rd October.
