Giving back is something that is incredibly important to me, and one of the reasons I'm thankful that I own my own business so I'm able to do so on a bigger scale. I donate a portion of every sale to National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA).
NEDA is the leading 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization in the United States advocating on behalf of and supporting individuals and families affected by eating disorders. Reaching millions every year, they campaign for prevention, improved access to quality treatment, and increased research funding to better understand and treat eating disorders. They work with partners and volunteers to develop programs and tools to help everyone who seeks assistance.
This is a cause that is dear to my heart, as I personally suffered through an eating disorder while I was in college. So many of the women I know and love have struggled with disordered eating and distorted body image over the years and it’s my desire to use this business for good and contribute to a world where women can fully thrive, living healthy, confident lives of true beauty and worth. My hope is that by giving back to this organization, the jewelry I make can be an outward representation of health and healing and true beauty that radiates from within.
