Shopping for that perfect holiday gift for the special women and men in our lives just got a little easier thanks to a beautiful and meaningful creation from the Women’s Brain Health Initiative (WBHI).
As you may know, with women twice as likely as men to be affected by brain diseases such as dementia, stroke and depression as they age, WBHI is a Canadian charity working to raise funds to enhance research to find out why and improve the outcomes for women everywhere.
WBHI’s Hope-Knot, designed by renowned Canadian jeweller Mark Lash, is an icon designed by the Women’s Brain Health Initiative to create awareness and escalate concern over the unchecked growth of dementia and other aging brain diseases in women. A symbol of the importance of memory and a loose visual likeness of the brain, the Hope-Knot reminds us of how connected every aspect of our lives is to our ability for cognitive thought.
A loose visual likeness of the brain, the Hope-Knot is a stylish and beautiful piece of jewellery that represents how cognitive thought is connected to every aspect of life. Giving a Hope-Knot as a gift means supporting an important cause and giving a lasting symbol of how much the women in our lives – mother, daughter, sister, partner or best friend – matter.
So the next time you see someone wearing a Hope-Knot, take a moment to think of the women in your life – your mother, daughter, sister, partner or best friend and remind yourself of how much you depend on their insights, memories, and that twinkle in their eyes. And the next time you see one for sale, remind yourself how much all of that is worth to you. And then when people see you wearing yours, pass the thought on to them. Support the Initiative. Wear a Hope-Knot.
The Hope-Knot is available in stainless steel as a pin, and in sterling silver pins, pendants, necklaces and cufflinks. Hope-Knots can be purchased online at: http://hopeknot.myshopify.com/.
