Something old. Something new.
This week we’re launching the Hem + Haw earring line. We’ll be donating 20% of profits from each purchase of a pair of earrings to the New Orleans Shelter for Women and Children.
From the beginning, we wanted Hem + Haw to be a sustainable business, one that could survive and give back. In some ways, it’s a scary step to take when we’re still getting our footing in this big ‘ole business world. But most of the advice we’ve gotten is to start down the path you want to go, even if it’s all baby steps. So, here we are......
Why the New Orleans Shelter for Women and Children?
Giving vulnerable women and children a safe place to stay is important on its own. But combine that with parenting workshops, education assistance, financial literacy and life skills training and you have program that leads to self sufficiency in a powerful way. In fact, over the last five years, 85% of families exiting the shelter were able to move into their own homes.
We want to support that work.
New Orleans has one of the highest per capita homeless rates in the nation. This is where we make our home, so we want to participate in building up our community.
We’d love your help in getting the word out.
Tell a friend to include your email when placing their order and we’ll send YOU a free pair of earrings (your choice)! Promo ends 3/8/17.
