Crysobel Gives Back:
Crysobel is donating 15% of every sale to the Saiva Mangaiyar Kalagam from now through the end of 2007. Saiva Mangaiyar Kalagam is a charitable organization based in Sri Lanka to help support the post-tsunami rebuild. The organization was founded in the 1930s by designer Gaitri Chandra Raj’s grandmother, Sornacanthy Nallainathan with the mission of promoting culture and scholarship among Sri Lankan Tamil girls. Over time, the Saiva Mangaiyar Kalagam has grown and branched out into many other areas of social services.
After the Asian Tsunami in 2004, the organization was instrumental in providing tools and resources to rehabilitate the affected communities and also spearhead the construction of a local community center. While the Saiva Mangaiyar Kalagam gets donations from individuals and European and Asian Embassies, it is still in desperate need of funding to continue its post-tsunami efforts.
