This is what the website says :
Celiac Disease Awareness
Celiac disease , also known as gluten intolerance, is a genetic disorder that affects 1 in 133 Americans. Symptoms of celiac disease can range from the classic features, such as diarrhea, weight loss, and malnutrition, to latent symptoms such as isolated nutrient deficiencies but no gastrointestinal symptoms. Those affected suffer damage to the villi (shortening and villous flattening) of the intestines, when they eat specific food-grain antigens, (toxic amino acid sequences) that are found in wheat, rye, and barley. Oats have traditionally been considered to be toxic to people suffering from Celiac Disease but recent scientific studies have shown otherwise.
Both of my daughters, Halle,(6) and McKenze (3) have Celiac Disease. Now I have been tested also and have confirmed that I have it. For this reason I have made the Celiac Disease Awareness jewelry (green catseye with peridot Swarvoski Crystals that represent the celiac color) with an awareness ribbon for Celiac Disease. I have chosen a few fundraisers to donate 20% of profits for Celiac Disease.
20% will go to the University of Maryland Center of Celiac Research

The lady creates bracelets, necklaces, and keychains out of crystals and beads. 20% of the profits go to Celiac Research.
I think that's a great idea!
