At ELLA+RUBI we *obviously* LOVE fashion and accessories. But we also love to support a great cause - especially when you can look GREAT while doing good! We carry quite a few fun brands that come with great messages and they support various causes.
LINK OF HEARTS
The designs of these sweet bracelets ( AND EVEN A FEW AMAZING CANDLES!!) are simple and minimal, but the INTENTION sets Link of Hearts jewelry apart. Most companies give monetary donations; Link of Hearts' mission is to inspire and connect with someone directly... to touch one's heart and encourage someone to get through one more day... and be a voice to help fight the stigma of mental illness and depression. Every piece is designed with an inspirational word/phrase. One simple word on a piece of jewelry is a positive, powerful daily reminder of hope. We at ELLA+RUBI support this with our whole heart and love that with every purchase of a Link Of Hearts product, a bracelet with an inspirational message is given to a person in need!
HALF UNITED JEWELRY
WITH EVERY PRODUCT YOU PURCHASE A CHILD GETS A WEEK OF MEALS!
Carmin and Christian Black are the sibling founders of HALF UNITED, and the people behind the concept of using a recycled bullet casing to represent your fight against hunger.
Having started their business with only $200 these two turned a fledgling idea into a growing movement of men and women UNITING together to stop hunger in its tracks.
HALF UNITED has given over 115 thousands meals to children since 2010.
HALF UNITED proves that it is far better to give than to receive, donating HALF of the profits from every product sold directly towards fighting the global hunger epidemic!
APOLIS MARKET BAG
With the purchase of the fabulous APOLIS LAKE OSWEGO or TIBERON MARKET BAG you support the APOLIS Bangladesh Project.
A total of 170 Partners across ten countries are now participating in the APOLIS Local + Global project.
ALILAMU BAGS FROM KENYA
You MUST watch this video of how the FABULOUS bags are hand and heart made in Kenya out of old sails. This project provides jobs for fishermen ( and their families) in the off season and provides us with one of our ALL TIME FAVORITE beachbags!
