Stop shopping and start 'CURE8ING'

Valerie Brunnett, founder and curator of CURE8THIS.
The newly launched CURE8THIS.com encourages you to “stop shopping” and “start CURE8ING.” With a focus on supplying ethically produced fashion, supporting upcoming talent, and giving back to eignt non-profits, customers become part of a greater cure through their purchases.

Part of the growing trend to combine fashion with positive social impact, they not only donate 8% of yearly profits, they supply consumers with accessories that have been handmade from recycled materials and attire that has been produced domestically by artisans in Florida, California, and New York to name a few. 

“We were especially thrilled to use Nashelle jewelry as the creator of our CURE8THIS Infinity Logo Bracelets,” said founder Valerie Brunnette, “because in addition to the causes we support, Nashelle also donates a plate of food for every bracelet sold.” (Available in recycled gold or silver for $56.)

"I challenge everyone to think about where their products come from, whether slow fashion or slow food. We need to think about what we consume, the places these objects are created, and where they are going to end up some day," says Valerie.

On Saturday, March 19, you can participate at a "Sip & Shop" from 11 am to 2 pm at 2265 Tequesta Lane. There are complimentary mimosas with RSVP on eventbrite here

Miami-based CURE8THIS gives back to 8 nonprofits; the first 4 of which have local centers: 

Miami Rescue Mission
National Young Arts Foundation
Style Saves
Yoga Gangsters
A21 Foundation
Action Against Hunger
Best Friends Animal Society
Project Aware Foundation

Perfect for holiday gifting or for giving back all year round, the curated collection of art, accessories, and attire is always available for purchase at CURE8THIS.com and also may be viewed in person by appointment. Please reserve your time by calling 888-238-5270 or by emailing info@cure8this.com.
