I’m officially naming a facet of J’Adorn that has been a priority from the beginning.
Meet J’Adorn Gives – an initiative straight from my heart!
When I founded J’Adorn Designs to sell my handcrafted jewelry back in 2012, I knew that I’d have to reinvest every penny I made back into the business to keep growing. But I also knew that I wanted my company to be a force for good in the world.
I wanted to make philanthropy part of my business model as soon as it was financially feasible.
I had my first chance to give back through J’Adorn Designs in 2014.
My hair stylist invited me to donate jewelry to her salon’s annual fundraiser for suicide awareness and prevention. This was especially close to my heart, as I had recently lost a childhood friend to suicide. So, I knew I needed to jump at this chance to make a difference.
I made this custom jewelry set especially for the fundraiser. Then I designed the display and brought it to the salon for the silent auction.
It made me so happy to finally be able to give with J’Adorn Designs!
Since that first silent auction, J’Adorn Designs has donated jewelry or gift certificates to lots of other local, national, and international causes.
Some of the causes J’Adorn Designs has given to include:
Looks for Life / GrassRoots
Ellicott City Flood Recovery
Let’s Help Kids
Lost pregnancy + adoption funds for private families
Pencils of Promise
Relay for Life
Myasthenia Gravis Foundation of America
Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund (Episcopal Relief and Development)
Philanthropy has always been a foundational value of my custom jewelry business. J’Adorn Gives is simply naming this priority.
