We are all struggling to comprehend the damage and destruction caused by Superstorm Sandy. A friend in Manhattan described life there as a “new world now”. I am always inspired, though, that right after the initial shock and immediate crisis, people put aside their own hardships and help those more affected. I love this optimism and resilience.
Even jewelry can help. New York City-based Joan Hornig, known for her philanthropic jewelry designs featured in stores like Bergdorf Goodman, has created this special piece to benefit Sandy victims. 100% of the profit of the sales of this piece will go to the purchaser’s charity of choice! It’s called Build Up the Giving Necklace, a sterling silver barbell, and retails for $80.22, which signifies the 80 MPH winds, and 22 states affected.
Even if we can’t be on the ground in the areas affected, we can help in our own way. Click the image to buy from the Joan Hornig website, or click here.
