Philanthropy and Penguins pride go hand-in-hand with a new limited-edition bracelet to benefit Austin’s Playroom Project, an initiative started by Mario and Nathalie Lemieux to bring more playrooms to medical settings.

The “Healing Power of Playrooms” bracelet has custom black and white beads and silver charms, including a hand and glove Mario Lemieux Foundation charm. It was created by Rachel’s Cure by Design, started by Rachel Tobin after she was diagnosed with diabetes in 2005 at age 12. She founded the brand, based in Pittsburgh, as a way to donate a portion of the jewelry proceeds to finding a cure.

Bracelets are $66 each at www.mariolemieux.org.
