Giving Back - Jada Jo

Giving Back



One of the core pillars of Jada Jo is giving back. Traveling around the world and seeing many of the hardships in my backyard and in global communities, I made a commitment to ensure every piece of jewelry sold would give back to those in need. 10% of the net proceeds is given to one of the outlined organizations.
Love 146, Wine to Water, and Step Up are three organizations dear to Jada Jo.  For the month of July, all contributions will be given to Love 146 as July 30th is World Day Against Trafficking. Love 146 is doing amazing work, and I couldn't be more delighted to support them. For more information, on human trafficking and Love 146 be sure to check out this month's blog post.

Love146 is an international human rights organization working to end child trafficking and exploitation through survivor care and prevention. The trafficking and exploitation of children is one of the darkest stories and most severe human rights abuses imaginable. But for us, the hope of ending it is a reality. Love146 is helping grow the movement to end child trafficking while providing effective, thoughtful solutions. We believe in the power of love and its ability to effect sustainable change. Love is the foundation of our motivation.

Wine to Water makes a difference by fighting the global water crisis. Doc Hendley, CNN Hero of the Year, founded the organization through a simple fundraiser as a bartender that has branched into a world-wide organization working to providing clean water around the globe. The organization has impactful work that is life-changing and has provided a commitment to living, loving, serving, and giving back.

Step Up delivers compassionate support to people experiencing serious mental health issues, and persons experiencing chronic homelessness, to help them recover, stabilize, and integrate into the community. Through dynamic partnerships, we provide positive social and learning environments, vocational training, permanent supportive housing opportunities, and recovery services to empower individuals to cultivate lives of hope and dignity.
With Southern California being my home, I see the beauty and truth that such a wonderful environment brings. However, it is not just white sand beaches and movie stars. The truth is, a large population is placed with mental illness or addiction, which has often resulted in homelessness.
 Step Up on Second Street has made a paradigm shift by providing permanent housing and empowering individuals to create lives of hope and dignity. They know that a permanent residence is just a start and provide an array of services. 10% of the net proceeds of all sales of men’s jewelry will go to Step Up on Second Street. The contribution and awareness will assist someone who is working to get their feet back on the ground and support an amazing organization that is truly impacting communities one person at a time.
