As a way of giving back to my local community, I donate 5% from every jewelry
sale to New Horizons. They help survivors of domestic violence put their lives back together.
Today I'm writing my blog about domestic violence because October is Domestic Violence Awareness month. We all know it exists, but I wonder if people realize the extent of it. That's one of the many reasons I chose New Horizons for my place of donation. Also, because it hit so close to home.
Someone near and dear to my heart suffered domestic violence. I didn't know about it until she had the courage to leave. She kept it to herself for years. When she finally felt like she could somewhat support her and her children, she left.
I created this Healing Heart Pendant Necklace
in honor of all the survivors and those that didn't make it out. The cut down the middle is the scar left from healing. Each scar is different because each survivor has a different story. No two heart pendant necklaces will be the same because I hand cut each one. Also, 20% from every sale of the Healing Heart Pendant Necklace
is donated to New Horizons.
When you buy from Creative Jewelry by Marcia, you are making an impact on someones life.
