Our Other Passion – Spreading Awareness and Making a Difference
You’ve seen how dedicated we are to making hand-crafted pieces of jewelry when browsing our site or in-store. We also hold a strong passion for charity. And there’s one in particular that means the world to us – Autism Speaks.
Meet my son Addy. . .
My son Addy was diagnosed with autism when he was four years old. One in 150 children in America has autism. The cause of this condition has not been determined, therefore making it difficult to find a cure. Autism Speaks’ “Walk Now For Autism” 5K race is one of the ways we would like to raise awareness. Addy’s Hope is a group of friends, family and supporters of Addy. We will be competing in “Walk Now For Autism.”
But how can you help? While supporting our jewelry, you can also support the cause by shopping at AdAl Jewelry Designs, either online or in-store. From October 17 to the 24, 10 percent of all online or in-store purchases, including custom design pieces, will go to Autism Speaks. Also, in the upcoming year, AdAl Jewelry Designs will launch “I Am a Part of the Puzzle” awareness items. Proceeds from these pieces will also go to Autism Speaks. Every year, we’ll launch a new line of awareness items that you can buy months before the scheduled “Walk Now For Autism.” Beautiful jewelry for a beautiful cause.
We’ve also partnered with A Taste of Rubies, based in New Jersey, to help reach our goal of $4,000. The campaign is called Cupcakes for a Cause. Find out more by clicking on the link.
With the help of you and our partners, we hope to reach our donation goals and move a step closer to a cure for Addy and all the others suffering from this condition. To donate, just click the button below to get started.
This is a cause that is dear to my heart. As such, I invite you to make a secure online donation in support of the many affected families.
Your kindness is greatly appreciated.
Since we are striving to make a difference, contributing towards finding a cure, and assisting families dealing with Autism, the benefiting organizations will vary. This variation of differing organizations will enable us to further expand our reach to those who are in need.
