WHY WE GIVE BACK
When women support each other, incredible things can happen. At Joya, we are committed to giving back to women's causes around the world. Proceeds from every purchase go toward a women's charity that is striving to improve women's lives every day. From Indonesia to St. Louis, we pledge to support the needs of women any way we can: with money, outreach, events, and donations of Joya product.
OUR CURRENT PARTNERS
We are thrilled to be donating 10% of all of our August sales to an incredible non-profit: The Foster & Adoptive Care Coalition!
The Foster & Adoptive Care Coalition
Everyone deserves to be celebrated and loved, especially on their birthday. In honor of OUR upcoming birthday, we knew we wanted to give back to a foundation that is near and dear to our hearts.
The Foster & Adoptive Care Coalition (right here in St. Louis!) strives to create permanency in foster children’s lives by recruiting and supporting foster and adoptive families in the area.
The Coalition has a “Birthday Buddies” program where donors are paired with a foster child who has been identified as likely to receive very few or no gifts for their birthday.
Because of the COVID Stay-at-Home Order, Birthday Buddy donors will make their donations and the organization will purchase birthday gifts to have shipped directly to the children.
10% of all sales in the month of August will be donated to our friends at The Foster & Adoptive Care Coalition. If you want to learn more or donate on your own, please visit www.foster-adopt.org.
ALIVE | Alternatives to Living in Violent Environments
ALIVE’s mission is to provide counseling, emergency sanctuary and other critical services to adults and children impacted by domestic abuse, as well as to increase awareness in order to create a supportive community.
PROMO | Promoting equality for all Missourians
PROMO is Missouri’s statewide organization advocating for LGBTQ equality through legislative action, electoral politics, grassroots organizing, and community education. PROMO Fund promotes equality and protects the human and civil rights of LGBTQ people in Missouri.
Please take the time to follow both of these organizations and learn more about how they are helping our world move forward in these times!
The gentle women of Bali are dear to us because artisan communities there make many of the beautiful pieces of jewelry in our collection. For this reason we partner with the Bali LIfe organization and guarantee a portion of every sale goes back to the women of Bali.
Bali Life provides a safe place for disadvantaged Balinese women and their children. Donations help them learn to speak English, to sew, to work on computers and to get their first job. But more importantly, Bali Life gives them purpose, dignity, and hope. Visit www.balilife.org to donate or learn more.
In just one year, nearly 500 abused women and children are given a place to lay their head for a total of over 16,000 nights of safety at The Women's Safe House in St. Louis, our hometown. Almost every one of those women earn less than $10,000 a year. Poverty keeps them from a new beginning. Visit www.twsh.org for details and more donation information.
