When I started Jewel of Havana I wanted to create jewelry that makes you feel beautiful; that celebrates life's special moments and connects you to those you love. I also wanted to be able to give back to some of the causes that do good in our community and make the life we are celebrating that much sweeter.
It's no secret 2020 has been a challenging year for businesses and many not for profits have really been hit hard. This year more than ever giving gifts that give back not only helps the business you are buying from but pays it forward in our community and beyond.
Here are a few of the organizations we work with all year round where your shopping dollars at Jewel of Havana help support not for profits in our community.
From 2014-2021 this collection raised money for the Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center and from 2019 the Dodi Groves Breast Cancer Fund.
As of 2022 we are proud to partner with the Our Lady of the Lake Cancer Institute. Your purchases from the Draped In Love Collection generously support the OLOL Cancer Institute providing screenings and care for those who cannot afford it and research for a cure for in our community and beyond.
