Shanrene Charity Information

Shanrene for Charity

Since our beginning in 2003, our company has donated close to $175,000 in money, bracelets, and products to different charities. We have become one of the most popular places to buy personalized bracelets on the web and plan to continue on this course for years to come. Thank you so much for your support, as none of this would be possible without you. We donate to many different groups and organizations that deal with causes like: Breast Cancer, Ovarian Cancer, Leukemia, Supporting our Troops, Heart Disease, AIDS, Domestic Violence, and many others. We encourage you to donate directly to charity! We hear from people around the country almost every day on the phone, in our chats, and via email. We know these people can use all the help they can get. Please think about donating your time or your money directly to cancer charities or other charities you believe in.

Cancer Charities:
Shanrene, Inc. donates 10% of all gross cancer beaded bracelet sales to related foundations and organizations. This means 10% of the purchase price which allows us room for our costs. For all other awareness products we donate a set dollar amount for each item sold. The amount is shown in the product description for each item. We also donate our bracelets and jewelry to help raise money and awareness at numerous events.

Children's Cancer Charities:
Shanrene, Inc. is committed to helping children's charities. We currently donate 5% of all gross Mother's Bracelets sold on the web to The Heart Connection. If you have a favorite children's charity, please let us know and we will list it on this page. Read more about the Heart Connection at the bottom of the page.

Other Charities:
A portion of every awareness product purchased on goes to some charity or organization. If we have a new bracelet creation, from AIDS Bracelets to Support Our Troops Bracelets, we find a place to donate part of the proceeds. We are committed to raising awareness and to charities. We encourage you to donate directly as well! If you want to partner with us, please drop us a line. Our site is well known and has a high volume of shoppers and visitors. We have been on the web since 2003 and continuously hear from people asking for new designs to benefit their cause. We will continue to strive to get new cause products on line as quickly as we can.

A message about The Heart Connection from Shannon, owner of Shanrene, Inc.:
The children’s charity we have chosen to donate Mother's Bracelets proceeds to is The Heart Connection Children’s Cancer Programs in Des Moines, IA. It is an organization that is very dear to my heart. I became involved with The Heart Connection in 1991 as a camp counselor and ended up volunteering for many different activities until I moved to Colorado 7 years later.

It is an amazing non-profit organization that provides support and various programs for children diagnosed with cancer and their families. Among other things, they host two separate week-long camps. The first camp is an oncology camp for the children who are battling cancer or in remission. The second camp is for their siblings who are trying to deal with the changes in their family or loss of a sibling. Thanks to donations, these camps are free of charge. They also host various family support groups and outings, a mid-year ski reunion for the campers, a yearly memorial race in remembrance of a camper who passed away, and many other events.

The people I met during my years with the Heart Connection are some of the most amazing people I know. The strength of the children I have counseled is insurmountable. The dedication of the volunteers is never ending. The same faces come back year after year. While I am not close enough to volunteer any longer, I still want to be able to do something for these wonderful people. A portion of the proceeds from each mothers bracelet sale on this site will go to help these special families. Thank you so much for your purchase and support of something that is so important.

Thank you again,
Shanrene, Inc
