Hello beautiful Maven!
I can't believe how much the store is grown, how many women are walking around out there wearing Metal Marvels jewelry and how many lives have been changed through our Be Brave & Keep Going items. As you've noticed lately I've been posting more and more about giving back and doing something for the good of mankind. If you know me, you know that women empowering women is a HUGE deal to me. As a victim of internet bullying from another boutique, I know just how bad it can get and just how badly things need to change.
I'm trying more and more to encourage you as well to spread kindness and love through random acts, big and small. So that's why I've decided that our 3 year anniversary is going to be less about us and more about helping others. Keep reading for all the details!
So here's how it will work:
In honor of our anniversary I wanted to do something that was larger than sales, larger than you and me, and something that could help more people all while allowing you to get the jewels you've had your eyes on.
I ask with all of my heart that you make a purchase, no matter how big or small, any money donated is a huge help. I also ask that you share! Share this blog post on your Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram or whatever social media you use. Text the link to your friends, forward this to your entire email list. I want to make this huge because I want to make the holidays and beyond just a little sweeter for all the women who take shelter at this amazing organization.
I will send out a final tally of the money raised as well as in January be making a trip to the DWC myself, taking a tour, seeing it all for myself and seeing how your donations made an impact. PLEASE give this holiday season. You get jewelry in return and you can help change someones life. Thank you for taking the time to read this , I know it's long, but it's my heart in an email and it couldn't be cut short.
Happy Holidays friends!
