Michele Harris wore Milagros’ signature necklace in an AARP commercial that aired on National TV during the Oscar awards ceremony. Michele was the very first person to buy the Encanto necklace and an early-on supporter of Gracia. When she wore her necklace to the audition, she was asked about the unique piece. Michele told the compelling story of Milagros and the girls who are working to change their lives. AARP was moved and impressed by our mission and sent a generous donation to us.
The Academy Awards draw millions of viewers and the spot continues to appear on TV.
