The Accessories Council is set to host its first annual AC Cares/Beads of Love event tomorrow at the 92Y in New York City, aimed at helping children bead necklaces for their parents and caregivers.
Beads of Love is one of several initiatives that falls under the AC Cares event umbrella, a freshly-launched campaign to encourage the accessories industry to give back to the community. This is the first time the accessories industry has united and is volunteering time to support a number of initiatives including 92Y’s Beads for Love, The Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Alliance and The Fair Fashion Center.
