Nina Agdal will support the foundation’s Together For The Children Campaign as she rocks her MCH + Cruciani 2gether Bracelets, the hottest fashion accessory that pays it forward.

Miami Children’s Health Foundation (MCH Foundation) is excited to announce that model Nina Agdal will serve as celebrity ambassador for the MCH + Cruciani 2gether Bracelets initiative to support Together For The Children, The Campaign for Miami Children’s Hospital. 

By the time she turned 22, Nina — who is currently the face of Bebe — had been featured three times in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition, including on the cover of this year’s 50th Anniversary Edition. She has also modeled for Aerie by American Eagle and Op Swimwear, among others, and was featured in the 2013 Carl’s Jr./Hardee’s Super Bowl commercial. 

“I am delighted and honored to be able to help raise awareness through fashion for such an amazing institution like Miami Children’s Health Foundation,” Agdal said. “The MCH + Cruciani 2gether Bracelets are absolutely beautiful, but most importantly, they have a purpose.” 

“Nina first became involved with MCH Foundation a few years ago when she was invited to our signature gala, the Diamond Ball,” said Lucy Morillo, Esq., president and CEO of MCH Foundation. “Nina fell in love with our cause and wanted to know how she could help. So, when this opportunity arose, we immediately thought of her, and she very graciously accepted to be the face of this amazing initiative. For this reason, we will always be grateful to her.” 

This initiative was introduced by the world–renowned design house Cruciani, when they generously donated thousands of specially designed, macramé lace bracelets to MCH Foundation during the 2013 Diamond Ball. These bracelets, which serve as a symbol of hope for children worldwide, will help raise significant funds to continue providing the world-class care that Miami Children’s Hospital is known for. 

“Our foundation’s mission is to ensure the health and happiness of children everywhere,” Morillo said. “Nina Agdal is the perfect match for this initiative, and we are honored to work with her and Cruciani to promote our mission while raising awareness and funds for Miami Children’s Hospital.”

The bracelets, which feature the Miami Children’s Hospital logo, come in various colors and some even support specific causes such as Bella’s Promise, a partnership between MCH Foundation and the Live Like Bella Foundation, created to raise funds to expand pediatric cancer research at Miami Children’s Hospital. They are available with a minimum donation of $15 per bracelet, and 100 percent of the proceeds will benefit Miami Children’s Health Foundation. 

The MCH + Cruciani 2gether Bracelets are available by visiting mchf.org/cruciani or at the gift shop located inside the main campus of the hospital.
