Share The Savings

Hi. Emily C here. Like so many of you, I've been a bit dazed for the last few weeks with the enormity of the situation evolving around the world. Many of our customers and fans are health care professionals, and it is humbling to say the least to read their stories and feel connected with them.

As a small business, we've been affected, but I've been looking at what we do have and how we can help. I've seen other companies offering to donate a percentage of sales to charities, but that didn't feel quite right. And then I realized that I want each of you to decide what's the best place for your donation right now. We are all feeling closer than ever to our neighbors and our communities, and I want to respect that closeness.

So. We are offering a 20% discount on all orders through May 15 with the promo code "SHARETHESAVINGS". When you place an order, take a look at how much you're saving with the discount, and think of this as permission to donate that money to whatever organization or charity moves your heart right now. Or just give it to someone you know who really needs financial help right now. If you don't feel like you can afford it now, then maybe consider putting a note in your calendar for six months from now or a year from now, and think about making a donation at that time. 

I sometimes feel overwhelmed and paralyzed by the enormity of the problem and I let that keep me from doing anything to help. If you feel that way too, let this be a solution. It will give you a very concrete amount to give (20% of the price of your necklace), and it won't be overwhelming. And pay attention to how you feel afterward!

If you need a recommendation, here are a few charities that have my heart:

Together Rising

No Kid Hungry

Meals on Wheels

Direct Relief

International Rescue Committee

Thank you for supporting Emily C and and for taking care of each other.
