Why Buy Jewelry That Supports a Cause?

Why Buy Jewelry That Supports a Cause?

The necklace your grandmother gave you. Your graduation earrings. The bracelet that you and your best friend share. Jewelry has always been the most meaningful thing you can wear. With so many beautiful emotions associated with your jewelry, it’s especially significant when your jewelry has a positive impact on other people too. 

It’s great when you can be confident that your jewelry was made with recycled metals and ethically sourced gems. But it’s even better when your jewelry contributes to making the world a better place. Jewelry that supports a cause gives back and makes a difference in the world.

That’s why we founded Girl Up Collection. Every piece of our jewelry has extra meaning because it supports Girl Up, a leadership development initiative founded by the United Nations Foundation, guides girls along their journey from leaders to changemakers. It’s jewelry that supports a cause you can believe in.

The Girl Up Collection supports Girl Up programs and donates 5% of all sales to the 4,000 Girl Up Clubs in nearly 125 countries and all 50 U.S. states.

Girls and woman are the majority of the global population but there is no place in the world where girls and women experience total equality. Girl Up is training girls to be future leaders to advance global equity in 120 countries around the world.

That’s because no matter where they come from, girls have the power to transform themselves, their communities, and the world. Through leadership development training, Girl Up gives girls the resources and platform to start a movement for social change wherever they are. For those who stand with us in this movement, there is no rest until we achieve equal rights for every girl. Achieving global gender equality won’t be an easy task, but it’s worth it because investing in a girl means investing in her family, her community, and our world.

Girl Up Collection is feminist jewelry for a cause: it makes a statement that communicates your belief that when girls have the opportunity to reach their full potential the entire world benefits. It also celebrates the brilliant futures of girls everywhere with inspiring jewelry for the cause of gender equity worldwide.

Every piece celebrates the strength and uniqueness of the outstanding young women who are changing the future, using symbols of female empowerment, peace, love, success, and strength to express the ideals of Girl Up. 

Here are the four collections that best express the ideals of Girl Up and beautifully communicates them to support the strength of women and girls around the world.
