I love the Lilly Pulitzer Murfee scarves!! And now there is one with a cause. Lilly Pulitzer and In the Pink, a Lilly Pulitzer Via Shop, have partnered with MitoAction.org to create a custom-designed Murfee scarf to benefit children and adults diagnosed with mitochondrial disease. The partnership was inspired by Gordon Russell, owner of In the Pink, whose late wife Sandra K. Russell lost her battle to mitochondrial disease in 2008. Mitochondrial disease is a non-curable, life-threatening condition in which a patient’s energy is depleted due to dysfunctional cells.
In honor of Sandra's memory, this new scarf has an image of the human genome embedded in a classic bright colorful print! The Mito Murfee is available exclusively at In the Pink stores and online at http://shop.inthepinkonline.
com/. One hundred percent of the net proceeds from this limited edition scarf will benefit New England-based nonprofit MitoAction as they work to improve the quality of life for patients and families living with “Mito.”
So if you are looking to pick up a great gift or something pretty for yourself, grab a Mito Murfee from In the Pink and contribute to a great cause!! The best part is the scarf is absolutely adorable!
