Sixty years ago, the Boston Red Sox and the Jimmy Fund forged an powerful philanthropic bond. The partnership supports the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s adult and pediatric cancer research to improve the survival odds for cancer patients both here and around the world. To mark the anniversary, Rhode Island-based jewelry company Alex and Ani designed a graceful, expandable bangle ($28) that features a charm depicting a young boy at bat — the same image that’s on Fenway Park’s Green Monster. The eco-friendly bracelet comes in a silver or gold finish, and 20 percent of the proceeds from each sale directly benefits the Jimmy Fund. — Melissa MacEwen
