Mountain Necklace: A Creative Way to Give

Adam Melnyk | May 10, 2018

With Alpha House in mind, a unique hand-stamped mountain necklace was created by CoutuKitsch. The mountain range symbol represents “overcoming obstacles and challenges as well as being a prominent symbol for Alberta,” (CoutuKitsch).

Half of the profits from the sale of the necklaces will be donated to Alpha House. A BIG thank you to the team at the The Livery in Inglewood who came up with this creative way to raise funds for our clients.
