Bulgari

Recognizing that education has the power to transform lives, Bulgari has partnered with Save the Children since 2009 to provide quality education opportunities for the world's most vulnerable children. Bulgari's key focus is to provide quality education opportunities to transform children's lives. Through the partnership, Save the Children has reached more than 500,000 children and trained more than 18,000 teachers through educational activities in more than 1,000 schools, many of which are located in areas affected by conflict. Countries include: Albania, Afghanistan, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bolivia, Brazil, China, Colombia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Haiti, Indonesia, India, Italy, Mexico, Montenegro, Japan, Kenya, Ivory Coast, South Sudan, Tunisia, Uganda and domestic programs in the US and UK.

Bulgari's financial commitment has already benefited over 350,000 of some of the world's neediest children in over 20 countries. This essential funding has been provided through the sale of a specially designed Save the Children ring, inspired by the unique B.zero1 jewelry line. In November 2012, Bulgari and Save the Children celebrated reaching the milestone of $20 million raised for children's education with "Stop. Think. Give," a photo and video exhibit of photographer Fabrizio Ferri chronicling the Bulgari/Save the Children partnership over the past four years.

"The partnership with Save the Children has given us great satisfaction, and the sound results registered by the sales of the ring testify the enthusiasm and commitment of our clients, as well. I am extremely proud to see that our support is having an impact on the lives of some of the most vulnerable children on earth. This sharing of common efforts and values allows us to reconcile business growth with sustainable development, passing on a positive message in times of economic and political uncertainty," said Michael Burke, Chief Executive Officer of the Bulgari Group.

The Save the Children ring is available in Bulgari stores for $420 each, of which $90 will be donated to Save the Children. To purchase the ring or to learn more about Bulgari's commitment to education and to see the "Stop. Think. Give" exhibition please visit Bulgari US Philanthropy.
