I believe jewellery should always be sentimental or symbolic to the wearer, but when a brand goes above and beyond for a greater cause, it can even be more special. Introducing HALF UNITED, an initiative started by siblings Carmin and Christian Black whom turned a fledgling idea into a growing movement of men and women UNITING together to stop hunger in its tracks. With global hunger being a constant struggle, HALF UNITED strives to do their bit by giving HALF of all profits to feed children in need. Offering his and her jewellery, wristwear and apparel, HALF UNITED's products are all handmade and materials sourced from local businesses. Here I am wearing one of their newer styles, 'The Triple Threat' layered necklace. Each 'fighting hunger necklace' includes a recycled bullet; a simple yet bold, conversation starter and a reminder to the wearer of the child's life they've changed.
You can #doyourhalf by purchasing any of these fashionable designs either for yourself or as gift. Also, let me remind you that with each product purchased, you are providing a week's worth of meals to a child in need. How amazing is that?! HALF UNITED's profits also assist in maintaining crops and gardens, fishing farms as well as providing education for children.
Go on. Give a gift of change. Give a gift of hope.
