Guest Post: Pay it Forward in Gold

Hi again, everyone! This is Kelsey’s sister, Sara. I recently came into a situation that we all know too well—I lost my favorite “everyday” necklace. Now I know some of us (unlike Kelsey) usually wear the same accessories every day. Maybe it’s because I don’t like accessorizing or maybe it’s just because I love a quality piece of delicate jewelry. Either way, the time has finally come to invest in a new “everyday” necklace. Instead of feeling sad about the loss of an old necklace, I decided I would use this as an opportunity to be happy and buy a necklace that also gives back to a good cause—it puts a positive spin on an unfortunate situation! Below, you will find some of my favorite picks of delicate necklaces that are also for a good cause. Enjoy!

The Giving Keys, The Never Ending Necklace, $55
The Giving Keys was started by an actress/singer/songwriter who realized that we are all like keys—unique, flawed, scarred, and at risk of being discarded. You can order the keys with unique sayings of encouragement and every key is different. Here’s the catch—you have to give the key away at some point to a person you feel needs the same message that you did and then you can post the message on their website…how cool is that!? 

Half United, The Classic, $34
Half United was started by a brother and sister to positively impact the lives of people in desperate need of nutrition. Founded only 4 years ago, the duo makes all products in-house and donates HALF of the profits of every item sold directly towards fighting the global hunger epidemic. All necklaces come in a variety of colors. 

Satya Jewelry, Acholi Necklace, $88
This necklace, co-designed by Satya Jewelry and Kristen Bell, helps to promote peace and education in Northern Uganda. 100% of the proceeds of this necklace go toward Invisible Children’s life-changing program. I just love how delicate the necklace is while still being able to make such a huge impact. The tree of life symbols grounding and faith and reminds us that we are all connected. 

Thanks for reading my post! I hope that you are able to purchase one of these necklaces for yourself or for a friend. It feels good to spend money when you know it’s going to a good cause.

Do good and take care of each other,
