Making Children's Lives Better
Making the world a better place is a huge part of our identity personally and professionally. For every piece of our jewelry gifted we further support our mission of Building connection by donating to local Child Life programs.

-Creating Age appropriate strategies to minimize trauma and increase understanding of a medical diagnosis through treatments plans using therapeutic play, education and preparation
-Advocating for the special needs of children and their families
-Collaborating with the health care team to coordinate and manage care
Thank you for contributing to this mission!
About Child Life
Child Life Specialists are educated and clinically trained in the developmental impact of illness and injury. Their role helps improve patient and family care, satisfaction, and overall experience (childlife.org). Certified Child Life Specialists help infants, children, youth and families cope with the stress and uncertainty of acute and chronic illness, injury, trauma, disability, loss and bereavement. They provide evidence-based, developmentally and psychologically appropriate interventions including therapeutic play, preparation for procedures, and education to reduce fear, anxiety, and pain (childlife.org).
Child Life is especially close to our hearts because our youngest son, Bradley, has struggled with seizures for half of his life which has resulted in hospital stays, emergency room visits, and numerous invasive scans and tests. Over the last several years we have received the love, support, and expertise of these programs which has made our family's experience a lot less traumatic. We are committed to paying it forward by supporting child life’s mission of building connection, support, and relationships.
