New York, NY (April 8, 2014)—Philanthropic accessories line, Harkiss Designs, (http://harkissdesigns.com/) is pleased to announce its first Mothers’ Day contest, “Lady of the Season”. The company, which specializes in fine, handcrafted jewelry, handbags, apparel and home accessories, invites participants to visit it their website and follow contest guidelines for the chance to win a beautiful, exclusively designed piece of estate-quality jewelry for each season beginning in spring of 2014 and continuing through winter 2015. Those customers who purchase $75 or more from the online boutique prior to the deadline will be automatically entered in the Lady of the Season contest. The contest winner and runner-up will be chosen at random, and the winning Lady – or gentleman – will receive four pieces of fine, handcrafted jewelry, one for each season through the winter of 2015. The runner-up will win a beautiful basket hand-woven by a Harkiss Designs artisan, plus a finely crafted bracelet made from natural horn or brass.
“Mother’s Day is one of the most meaningful days of the year,” states Creator of Harkiss Designs, Harriet Zaffoni. “A worthwhile and philanthropic gift is a unique and heartfelt way to celebrate such an amazing occasion. Each and every accessory from the Harkiss Designs collection tells the story of the hands that have made it. The Lady of the Season contest is designed to honor both those women who create the unique and eclectic items in the Harkiss Designs collection and those who love to wear them."
Harriet Zaffoni established Harkiss Designs in the effort to improve the lives of women artisans in the East African nations of Uganda, Kenya and Rwanda, a region where the New York-based entrepreneur grew up. She works closely in these countries with skilled artisans one at a time who produce her distinctive and fashionable designs. Harriet then markets these items internationally, providing East African artisans with a far wider commercial reach than ever before. Harkiss Designs is based on a compassionate capitalism business model, and a portion of sales proceeds help fund Lend-a-Hand Uganda, a charitable organization that provides homes, healthcare and educational opportunities to Ugandan orphans and vulnerable children. Harkiss Designs also gives back to the East African communities and individual artisans that craft its products. The majority of these artisans are mothers, and it seems only fitting to have such a site wide celebration.
