Random Acts of Kindness

I've had multiple people approach me asking to purchase items for strangers, simply because they wanted to support my business/family, and do something kind for a stranger. After this happened several times, and I coordinated with folks to send out gifts, it occurred to me how cool it would be to bank credit to use when I see someone who'd love a piece but can't afford it.

I'll keep a running tally below of the funds banked and used to send gifts. If a gift giver or I see someone who could use a random act of kindness and the funds are there, we'll make it happen.

To show my appreciation and stretch the bank a little further, shipping is on me.

You can contribute to the banked amount here.

I'm absolutely open to additional forms of accountability, as long as they preserve the privacy of both gift givers and recipients.

Thanks to everyone who has allowed me to participate in these random acts of kindness and joy. I love the community that has formed around this business so much!

To date, gifters have contributed $1,459 to the bank, and $1,072 in jewelry has been gifted. This represents 16 items gifted and 4 pieces partially covered by the RAOK fund.

I'm working on a few custom gifts that haven't been deducted yet, including a memorial piece for a mother whose daughter has passed away, and a treat for a disabled community member on a fixed income. I will be gifting even more pieces soon!

Estimated combined price for three custom RAOK pieces currently in the works: $350

I need to catch up on several pending custom RAOK pieces, and then I'll be able to fully update the ledger. Thanks so much to everyone who has contributed! It means so much to me and everyone who has been (or will be) gifted a piece of jewelry.
