Picture 5Help support a special cause by purchasing from KaraAnnisJewelry! We will donate a portion of the profits from your jewelry order to our current charity of focus. All custom orders and orders placed online (through our website or through our Etsy shop) are eligible.  Let’s make a difference together!

Our current Charity of Focus:
Ronald McDonald House,
Greenville, NC
When considering what charity to choose as KaraAnnisJewelry’s next charity of focus, I felt a strong desire to benefit a local organization, one that is touching lives in my local community.  Since moving to Eastern North Carolina, we have encountered a number of families who have been served by the Ronald McDonald House in Greenville, NC.  While visiting some friends staying in the house, I got a first hand glimpse of the difference our local Ronald McDonald House makes in the lives of families with hospitalized children and the importance of their services.

The Greenville Ronald McDonald House welcomes families of seriously ill or injured children who are hospitalized or receiving outpatient treatment at area medical facilities.  Located right across from the hospital, the house provides a clean and comfortable place for parents/families to stay where they can be immediately available should their child need them.

Check out The Greenville Ronald McDonald House website to learn more.

Past Causes:
Dulce Reugio Childres Home, Aguascalientes Mexico
This children’s home in central Mexico received a portion of all jewelry sales from April 1 through July 31 2009.  The money donated will help with the construction of a new home for the children and to meet the needs of the children being cared for at Dulce Refugio.  Learn more here.

If you have a charity that holds a special place in your heart, please let me know.  We are searching for charities to feature and support in future months!

dulce2Help support a special cause by purchasing from KaraAnnisJewelry!   We will donate a portion of the profits from your order to our current charity of focus.  All custom orders and orders placed through our website and blog are eligible.  Let’s make a difference together!

Our current Charity of Focus:
Dulce Reugio Childres Home,
Aguascalientes Mexico
A portion of all profits from sales made in April through the end of July will go to support Dulce Refugio, a Christian orphanage in Aguascalientes, Mexico.  The mission of Dulce Refugio (“sweet refuge”) is to elevate each child’s quality of life; to promote well being; and to bring about social, cultural and economic improvement for the individual and community of Aguascalientes.

Dulce Refugio holds a special place in my heart.  This past summer, I traveled with a team of teens and adults to the orphanage to spend time with the children and help with the construction of a new home for the children.   We poured concrete, painted, and did whatever we could to help at the construction site during the day, and spent the afternoons playing, singing, making crafts, and spending quality time with the children.  Check out the photos below from our trip.
