WHY I GIVE BACK
The little Caribbean island these charms represent inspired my jewelry-making journey & is where it all began. I was a teacher in Austin, TX, before returning to the island of my parents. I found a lot of fulfillment working with students at the local schools when I was back in Texas, but as a jeweler living in Puerto Rico, I've had to find other ways to give back to the local community. I started selling these necklaces back in September 2019, & since the beginning, I've been giving back to the island of Puerto Rico with the sale of these special charms.
THE CURRENT CAMPAIGN
The latest fundraising campaign for the PR charms for charity is for RESCATE PLAYAS BORINQUEN, a non-profit organization dedicated to the restoration and protection of natural resources and outdoor recreational areas around Punta Borinquen in Aguadilla. Their vision is to create a northwestern ecological & recreational corridor for the island. They do amazing work & I’m happy to support their efforts & all they do in one of my favorite corners of this island!
