Angelina Jolie + Bochic Jewelry Help Raise Funds for USA for UNHCR AUCTION!!! LA-Story "Helping from the Heart" Blog
As a way of thanking Angelina Jolie for the tremendous exposure they received after she wore Bochic jewelry to this years Golden Globe Awards, Bochic will be donating the jewelry she wore to USA for UNHCR in support of World Refugee Day, recognized each year on June 20th.
In addition to her work in film, Angelina has become well known as a humanitarian, particularly in her role as a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees – UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency.
“To have one of the most beautiful women in the world wear Bochic jewelry to the Golden Globes, was of course very special for our company,” says David Joseph, Bochic’s President and Co-Founder. “For a long time we have admired Angelina’s commitment to charitable causes, and we are very happy to be able to support her work by donating the jewelry she wore – especially to an organization like USA for UNHCR.”
The pieces will be auctioned by charityfolks.com, a leader in online auctions benefiting charitable organizations, with all proceeds going to UNHCR programs in Chad for refugees from the Darfur region. June 20th is World Refugee Day, a day of recognition and solidarity for refugees around the world.
It is the sincere hope of Bochic that by donating the jewelry worn by Angelina Jolie, the goals of UNHCR and this year’s theme of World Refugee Day, “A New Home, a New Life” – will come one step closer to reality.
The Bochic necklace and earrings worn by Angelina to the Golden Globe Awards is a vintage-style suite of rose cut diamonds set in 22K gold. Favoring carat weight over symmetry, the rose cut gives a diamond a beautiful, natural appearance.
The auction starts on June 19th and runs through to July 2nd at http://www.charityfolks.com
