Project Sparkle aims to brighten the day of nurses, healthcare workers
Tysh Mefferd is doing what she can to thanks healthcare workers.
HOUSTON — From shoutouts to the gift of sparkle, Houstonians are finding creative ways to thank nurses. Even apart, we're still celebrating nurses and our healthcare workers, together.
Social media is helping. Debbie from Katy connected with KHOU Reporter Melissa Correa on Nextdoor to share details about Project Sparkle. It's a kindness campaign launched by jewelry company Park Lane.
Jewelry stylist Tysh Mefferd is helping to make it all happen.
You know a fun pair of beautifully sparkly earrings that they can wear when they’re working. When they’re not working,
"And we were kind of, like, we want to do something. We’re being asked to stay at home, but surely we can do something and make an impact. —Mefferd
About nine weeks ago, Park Lane stylists began donating jewelry boxes to frontline workers. A set of earrings are paired with handwritten cards of appreciation. The grassroots project quickly, "turned into a movement of thousands of customers wanting to be a part of it and also donate to the cause."
Project Sparkle has helped to brighten the day of about 20,000 healthcare workers around the world, so far.
Sharing a little touch and surprise of sparkle wasn’t going to change the world and it wasn’t going to solve the problem. Our hope was, if it could put a smile on a stranger’s face, then we’ve done all we can do today, —Mefferd
Park Lane Rep, Christine Lammers, uses ‘Project Sparkle’ to brighten up the dark days of the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis.
Christine Lammers from Canton Township in Michigan noticed healthcare workers on the front line of the coronavirus crisis were overworked, stressed beyond limits and extremely short on smiles, knowing how she has brightened many women’ days with Sparkle Box surprises in the past, she instantly came up with a project called the “Project Sparkle” to brighten up these overworked, overstressed healthcare workers who are in the front-line.
Christine Lammers said the project started with an idea to deliver jewelry to women working on the front lines in hospitals. Now there’s a movement underway that’s catching on across the country.
Lammers, a Park Lane Jewelry representative, purchases trendy, fashion jewelry using our representative status with the company and puts together goody bags of jewelry all day, then goes to bed at night thinking about who she can help next.
This is what we know and what we love,
During a conversation with her friends in Texas a few weeks ago, she came up with the idea to help women working in hospitals and elderly care facilities with fashion jewelry such as earrings and bracelets.
It started with healthcare workers,
Now they’re helping even more people, from nurses to postal carriers.
Every $24 donation buys one gift set. Volunteers then match each gift with another one of their own.
“We also know jewelry makes people happy,” Lammers said.
Hundreds of the gifts have already been given out in Metro Detroit, and thousands more have been gifted across the country, from Texas to Washington to Florida to New York to California.
Attached to each gift is a note, written by children from the area, thanking workers for their service.
The gift is great, but the handwritten card -- that really means the difference to the community,

When the Fall season hits, we check the weather reports each morning to see what outfit will work today. Is a sweater going to be too warm and a t-shirt too cold? Some days are both 55* in the morning and 75* in the afternoon. Is today going to be an end of Summer or beginning of Fall outfit?
That’s what we love about mix and matching. Taking a t-shirt and color jeans we would wear during summer with some cute wedges or peep-toe shoes and transforming your look by adding closed toe shoes and a comfy vest. They make this look pop! Of course this style wouldn’t be complete without the jewelry.
Fashions fade, style is eternal. – Yves Saint Laurent
Women spend so much time standing in their closet wondering what’s on deck for today. “I have nothing to wear,” is usually a sentence heard before we primp our hair and apply our makeup. Then there are the accessories. What shoes, belt, scarf, and jewelry will make this outfit pop? We often use our Pinterest boards and fashion catalogs as inspiration for our personal look, but what inspired you to wear the ensemble you choose today?
Have you ever noticed how you feel when you know an outfit goes together so perfectly? That confident, on-top-of-the-world feeling radiates off of you when you get to strut the perfect ensemble.
Street style fashion is a favorite of many because it allows us to express who we are through our personal style. It conveys who we are without ever speaking a word.
Today’s OOTD(outfit of the day) is rocker chic. The hot summer/fall look that can transcend day to night. Mixed metals are very stylish and today we love the gold and hematite collaboration. The mixed metals work perfectly with a black shirt and brown jeans. The whole outfit is coordinated and casual.
The jacket coordinates perfectly with the leather and crystal Roosevelt Bracelet. The Serena bracelet, one of our absolute must-haves, takes this outfit to extreme levels. The dainty Divine Ring is perfect because it adds that extra touch. Le Louvre Necklace adds the edgy touch mixed with a black t-shirt and the leather jacket.
Rocker chic is a must have look that is both edgy, stylish, and easy to recreate. How do you wear the rocker chic style? Share your OOTD pics on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter with #ParkLaneJewelry.
