100 Dresses for Little Dresses for Africa
If you've read Gwen's story you know that before she designed jewelry she was a self taught then formally trained apparel designer. Her foundation in apparel design and love for fashion forged her relationship with the non-profit, Little Dresses for Africa (LDFA). Her love for creating and empowering women motivated her to form her own initiative in support of the organization. Annually during the month of June Gwen organized a group of volunteers to assist with making and designing 100 dresses for little girls across the globe who were in need of them. To date we have donated several hundred dresses with the help of the community, to LDFA. In 2020-2021 due to the challenge of convening in large group settings we hosted a virtual at home “Make a Dress Challenge”. It was a beautiful way to build community both locally and globally. We continue to admire the mission of Little Dresses for Africa and their commitment to providing relief to girls and children. We offer our support today by donating a percentage of our June month sales to this organization who is changing the lives of thousands of children and families around the globe.
Gift an Educator
Around the onset of the pandemic so many teachers were among the many heroes on the front lines showing up for our children. We wanted to make them feel special so in 2020 we launched the Gift an Educator Project. We invited our community to nominate an educator in their life. We've now gifted teachers from all across the country with a special golden gift. We continue to value the contribution that educators make to our children every day. You can nominate your favorite teacher for a chance to win Gwen Beloti jewelry this holiday season. It takes just a couple of minutes to shout out that special person. Nominations will close at the end of Teacher Appreciation Month on May 31st and will reopen in September. A number of educators will be selected in November and gifted in December, just in time for the holiday season.
"From what we get, we can make a living; what we give, however, makes a life."
