Shop for Prospect Park
July 28, 2016
In celebration of Prospect Park’s 150th anniversary, Same Sky, a trade initiative that provides employment opportunities for women struggling to lift themselves out of extreme poverty, with collectives of artisans in the United States and Rwanda, has launched the EARTH bracelet. The bracelet is made with the mission of keeping urban spaces green for visitors and wildlife alike, highlighting the importance of community and conservation.
Through the generosity of Same Sky founder Francine LeFrak, whose family also provided critical funding for the creation of the LeFrak Center at Lakeside, a portion of the proceeds of the EARTH bracelet will benefit the Prospect Park Alliance’s work to sustain, restore and advance Prospect Park, ensuring that Brooklyn’s Backyard is a vital, public green space for all to enjoy.
