Lifestyle expert Pamela Pekerman lost her father in 2009 to a disease called Wegener's Granulomatosis. To celebrate his life and raise awareness for the cause Pamela and her family launched Shop4Vasculitis, an incitive that will raise money for the Vasculitis Foundation, the international organization that leads education, awareness and research in support of those with vasculitis, in conjunction with the Ilya Peckerman Fund.
With ties in the fashion industry, many of Pamela's designer friends have generously offered to donate a percentage of sales from certain merchandise to the Ilya Peckerman Fund. Several designers are even creating unique products specifically to benefit the cause. We will announce participating designers and upcoming fundraising events in the coming weeks. The line also includes a fashionable collection ofRed Python and Lavender Lambskin as well as Red Patent Leather and Lavender Lambskin cuffs where 20% of all proceeds will be donated to the cause. With May being Vasculitis Awareness Month this is a perfect time to shop, give back and support this devastating disease.
