As a women-owned and operated company, we are incredibly passionate about supporting women and causes that are dear to us. Every day, 1 in 8 women in the U.S. are diagnosed with breast cancer. At ZAXIE, we stand by our mission of making a strong social impact in our local community and worldwide.
The ZAXIE Sparkle Squad participated in Gloria Gemma’s Flames of Hope : A Celebration of Life to inspire awareness, compassion, support and sparkle in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month. This spectacular weekend consisted of several different events, all of which we are more than honored to be a part of.
Saturday morning began with Passport to Survivorship, a health and wellness expo for cancer patients, survivors and the general public. The first 500 attendees received a free ZAXIE Sparkle Strong Bracelet, the hero piece to our Sparkle Strong collection.
The day continued with the Celebration of Life Festival, which featured a marketplace of various retail and food vendors , live music, and more. In the ZAXIE tent, visitors were able to meet the team, try on some sparkles, and shop for a cause!
The most exciting part of the weekend, however, was the beautiful Illuminations of Life Ceremony, a torch procession to encourage support for all the lives touched by breast cancer. Beginning at sundown, 150 torchbearers made their way to the Providence River Basin to light the largest Waterfire of the season. Among the torchbearers are survivors, affected family, and donors.
Our founder, Stefanie Taylor, took part in this moving event. Witnessing all the support and love was a feeling that she will remember for years to come. “These women have stories to tell and fight to carry on with. I want to take part in helping as many of them through these journeys as we can."
On Sunday, the ZAXIE team participated in the Gloria Gemma Run/Walk. We had so much fun taking part in the race and making a difference.
It was truly the perfect way to end such an amazing weekend! But we're not stopping there...
This month, we invite you to join us as we Sparkle Strong. Our Sparkle Strong Collection was curated with the hope to inspire, empower, and support the fight against breast cancer.
We will be donating 20% of the proceeds from each product sold to the Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Resource Foundation and their mission to provide comprehensive resources and services to breast cancer patients, survivors, and affected families. Together, let's make a difference.
