I want to begin by saying… Jewel never ceases to AMAZE us! Personally, I had the pleasure of seeing Jewel in her Pre-Celebrity days.  She was playing at Java Joes in OB, singing with the Rugburns (Steve Poltz) and mesmerizing us with her unique tunes. Congratulations on your accomplishments!
Singer, actress and expectant mother Jewel partnered with Bravado! Designs today to donate 2,600 nursing bras and tank tops to their long time charity partner Baby Buggy, a non-profit organization that provides families in need across the country with essential equipment, products, clothing, and educational services for their infants and children up to age 12.  The bras and tops will be distributed to new moms served by Baby Buggy’s partner program, Nurse-Family Partnership, in both Dallas and New York City.
Even though she is busy planning for the new addition to her family, Jewel wanted to make a difference in the lives of at-risk mothers in her home state of Texas.  By donating these Bravado! bras and tank tops, Jewel will help keep new moms and babies in the Dallas area healthy by providing the tools to make breastfeeding a possibility.
“Thank you to Bravado! Designs for partnering with me to donate over 2,600 nursing bras to mothers in need through the extraordinary work of Baby Buggy,” said Jewel.  “This is an un-paralleled opportunity and honor to play such a meaningful role in the lives of other new mothers, and help to assure that all women get the products and care they need for themselves and the next generation.  Bravado! Designs and Baby Buggy have given me the tools to make a real difference in the lives of other new mothers. Through this affiliation, I am able to provide quality products and necessary services to support at-risk mothers who struggle to provide the best possible future for their babies.”

“This is a classic example of how a philanthropic partnership should work: a generous donor, a terrific corporate partner to help the people who need it most, and the opportunity to make a real difference in a community,” said Jessica Seinfeld, Founder of Baby Buggy.  “Bravado! and Jewel are a model for how Baby Buggy works best, and through this donation, we will reach mothers in need in the Dallas area who wouldn’t typically have access to these products, as well as aid the invaluable work of our partner site, Nurse-Family Partnership.  We are extremely grateful for Jewel’s and Bravado!’s support of our programs.”
