Giving Back


Every year, I donate a portion of the proceeds from the Heart.Full Collection to Mary Bridge Children's Hospital here in Tacoma. This is the hospital that saved my child's life when she was five weeks old (before she had open heart surgery a few months later).

Several years ago, I made our giving back more official. I split 5% of the total Soul Mantra proceeds between two different organizations: Mary Bridge - specifically to their Treehouse Program, which gives families a place to stay and other resources when their children are hospitalized and Oasis - a local organization that gives LGBTQ youth a safe space to learn, connect, and thrive. 

Additionally, in 2018, 15% of the proceeds from the Rise Up necklace went to the Hispanic Federation for Hurricane Disaster Relief for Puerto Rico and 15% proceeds from the She Persisted necklace went to the Southern Poverty Law Center. In 2019, 50% of the proceeds from my daughter's and my wood bead necklace collaboration went to RAICES

I also from time to time carry a selection fair-trade items that hold a special place in my heart. These items provide fair wages for the artisans who create them.

We are in this crazy, beautiful, heartbreaking, incredible world of humanity together. And this is one way we can support one another.
