As most of you know, Cara Becker was diagnosed with leukemia in the fall of 2012, and during the course of Cara’s treatment, she and her family started Karma for Cara Foundation.
When Cara passed away in December 2012, Jenny—Jill Becker’s sister & Cara’s aunt—handcrafted a cuff in Cara’s favorite color (orange) adorned with the protective eye and gave it to Jill as a gift. Though they did not know it at the time, this cuff–now called the “Karma for Cara Cuff”–was the beginning of Lema J Design. Lema J donates 100% of the profits from every sale to Karma for Cara Foundation, giving life to their #CuffsForACause.
What follows is an interview with Jenny about Cara, Lema J Design & Karma For Cara.
