It is a world of beautiful things, but it is also a world of extreme challenges for many. That is why $10 from each direct website order will go to one of the wonderful charities listed below, all subjects that we are extremely passionate about. We offer you, our customer, the choice of which initiative you would like to pledge the $10 to. We have broken down each charity's mission below, and we are excited to assist where we can as a small independent business. Will your passion lie with empowering women all over the globe? Will it be with protecting our oceans and assisting in the salvation of species on the brink of extinction? Perhaps it will be with the rescuing of shelter animals, and partnering them for companionship with the elderly. The choice of where the $10 from your order goes is yours, and no matter which initiative you wish to pledge to, it will make a difference to a person or animal in need.
SHE'S THE FIRST
"With more than a decade of experience and trust-building, She’s the First (STF) uses a rights-based approach to educating and empowering girls globally.
To set girls up for success, STF strengthens their ecosystems (think of all the interconnected pieces of their lives…at school, in the home, and around their community). No one influences these systems more than grassroots, women-led organizations—and so we provide funding, training, tools, and networks to improve outcomes for their girls’ programs.
We also advance advocacy for girls’ rights—when policies, systems, and communities are not designed around girls’ needs, it’s time to change them!"
"Oceana seeks to make our oceans more biodiverse and abundant by winning policy victories in the countries that govern much of the world's marine life. Oceana, founded in 2001, is the largest international advocacy organization focused solely on ocean conservation. Our office around the world work together to win strategic, directed campaigns that achieve measurable outcomes."

PETS FOR THE ELDERLY
"The Pets for the Elderly Foundation (PFE) is a 501 (c)(3) public charity whose mission is to provide companionship to senior individuals through pet ownership, while saving the lives of companion animals in shelters; animals which might otherwise be destroyed due to lack of appropriate homes, and space limitations. Research shows the most serious disease for older persons is not cancer or heart disease – it’s loneliness. Pets offer affection, unconditional love, fight loneliness, and can help ease the loss of a loved one. Please help. Your monetary donation can make a difference. Few causes can have the potential benefits that will result from your contribution – you not only save the life of an animal, you can make a dramatic difference in the life of a senior. "
