HALIFAX, March 26, 2015 /CNW/ - The Children's Wish Foundation of Canada has released a line of jewelry to help grant wishes. Wishes are an ageless concept and The Wishbone Necklace is a joyful creation that is a symbol of hope and motivation for wish children and their families.

Lawtons Drugs and The Children's Wish Foundation of Canada have partnered to sell the Wishbone jewelry across all Lawtons Drugs locations in Atlantic Canada.

"We are very excited about The Wishbone necklace and earrings. Joy is a powerful gift, and The Wishbone necklace is a joyful creation that will help grant more wishes for our wish children. We are thrilled that Lawtons Drugs has partnered with us to help grant wishes," said Cheryl Matthews, Chapter Director, Nova Scotia Chapter of The Children's Wish Foundation.

Twenty per cent of the proceeds from the Wishbone jewelry sold in stores will go towards helping to grant a wish. They are available in three designs and retail for $12.99 plus tax for the necklace, and $9.99 plus tax for the earrings. The jewelry is all lead, nickel and cadmium free with stunning Austrian crystal rhodium-plated sterling silver.
