Known for their dazzling creativity throughout the year, Team Fox members are also entrepreneurial when it comes to utilizing innovative businesses and crafty projects to fundraise. This holiday season, many are directing their bright ideas toward speeding a cure for Parkinson's disease (PD) by donating a portion of proceeds to Team Fox. And, 100 percent of Team Fox donations go to The Michael J. Fox Foundation's high-impact programs to end PD.

After learning her father might have PD, Sara launched into action to create "the classic bandana reborn in silk," donating 20 percent of each square to Team Fox.
