10% of Gennaro¹s Profits Will Go Towards Cultivating Strong Female Mentors Through the Nonprofit, ³Strong Women Strong Girls²

New York – Thursday, February 19th, 2015 – Gennaro – the popular woman-owned and operated fashion jewelry house – launched a new ŒDo Good jewelry line that will hit more than 250 Icing stores today. The charitable goal of “Look Fabulous Share Confidence” is to project a positive self-image for girls in underserved communities. When it comes to looks, school, friends and family, 7 in 10 American teen girls believe they are not good enough or don¹t measure up in some way.

To help make a positive difference, Gennaro has developed a unique jewelry line for Icing¹s customer base that features over a dozen beautiful styles of earrings, bracelets and necklaces that use the words strong, ambitious, and confident to empower girls and women of all ages and backgrounds to strive for these things everyday. Insiders know Icing as the fashionable big sister to the Claire’s brand, appealing primarily to young women. Gennaro’s new “Look Fabulous Share Confidence” (LFSC) line will be displayed in a designated fixture located by the cash register in select Icing stores. Reaching every woman’s budget, the affordable line will cost $6.50 – $10.50.

“As a company made up of a majority of women, we were inspired to create a new jewelry line that empowers girls and women to look gorgeous and feel great about themselves, no matter what stage of life they¹re in. Whether you¹re a teen girl, a college student, or a young professional, “Look Fabulous Share Confidence” is positive acknowledgement that you are capable of achieving everything you set your mind to. We feel fortunate to be able to give the gift of jewelry to girls and women to empower them to realize their full potential and accomplish great things,” said Gennaro President and social entrepreneur, Stefanie Taylor.

“We are very proud to bring Gennaro’s “Look Fabulous Share Confidence” line to Icing stores across the country We truly believe in making a positive impact on women and girls of all ages through our accessories. We are thrilled to be able to work with an innovative company such as Gennaro to be able to make a difference,” said Shawn Colley, Vice President and Divisional Merchandise Manager at Icing.

To help pay it forward, Gennaro has pledged to donate 10% of their profits from “Look Fabulous Share Confidence” sold at Icing stores to Strong Women, Strong Girls (SWSG), a national nonprofit organization whose mission is to support positive mentoring relationships between pre-adolescent girls, college women, and young professionals in underserved communities to help raise ambition and help reduce the incidence of low self-esteem.
