With the power of social media, Oriana had been in contact with the family of a little boy named Lino Benso. Despite a healthy pregnancy, Lino suffered from hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy (HIE)during the birthing process in which he had no heartbeat for his first 8-10 minutes of life. During that time his brain received little to no oxygen or blood causing a multitude of lesions and other complications. As a result, parts of his brain had died causing serious brain injury, most of which is related to his fine motor skills. Namely, his mouth & tongue, making it difficult to eat and his fingers & wrists, making it difficult to open a flat hand or grab items. His gross motor skills affected include his arms & legs making it difficult to bend or extend and his trunk & neck making it difficult to hold his head or body upright. But his fine and gross motor skills are just the tip of the iceberg. Other parts of his brain were affected as well and he has had numerous diagnoses in just 20 short months, ones that would leave him with a battle to fight every day for the rest of his life. Monies raised will go towards feeding therapy and other therapy Lino will need in the coming months.
Oriana worked closely with Lino’s parents to design a custom “Armcandy For A Cause” bracelet that would represent Lino. Lino's social media name is @Live.Laugh.Love.Learn.Lino to have it reflect Lino's personality and the logo is an olive tree, which is a symbol of HOPE. Therefore when creating Lino’s “Armcandy For A Cause” bracelet, Oriana selected a yellow agate stone and an olive branch pendant both of which symbolize HOPE. Proceeds from the sale of this bracelet will be donated directly to Linos family to help with necessary therapies.

How should the bracelets fit?
There’s no right or wrong! It all depends on what feels comfortable for you. However, you don’t want them too tight so they don’t move because they will leave marks on your skin . You also don’t want them too tight where they go flying off your wrist! One thing to keep in mind is... that as you stack 3,4 or more, our arm gets wider and therefore the bracelets will fit tighter. As a rule of thumb, Oriana’s wrist measures 6” in diameter and she wears our standard size 7.5” bracelets.
I need the bracelet smaller, what do I do?
Very simple! You can just drop us a message in the “note” section at checkout and we will make them according to your request. If you’re not sure what size you need, you can refer to our sizing guide or send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
