I was recently introduced to an awesome organization called The Shine Project. Have you heard of it? It’s an amazing non-profit organization that works improve the lives of at-risk American teens. A year ago, The Shine Project started a business called Threads, which is a line of gorgeous handmade jewelry made by these teens to help raise money for their education and future. Breaking the cycle, which is one of the goals of this business, is such a fascinating subject to me. I am beyond impressed by those who can pull themselves out of negative situations and change their life for good.

I’m thrilled to be joining The Shine Project and Threads in celebrating their one-year anniversary! Head over to their website to see the gorgeous jewelry, learn more about their amazing mission, and join me in WEARING CHANGE.
