Are You Giving Back?

For a few years now Sylvia and I have been talking about giving back, and although we donated a little here and there, we hadn’t found the “right” organization to work with until now.

So here it is (drum-roll)…. We have partnered up with Kiva to help make a difference! With every purchase you make, we will donate a percentage to help empower Filipino women in need. Why women from Philippines you may ask. We picked women in the Philippines because this is where most of our handcrafted jewelry is made.

Have you heard of the quote-  “Give a man a fish and you’ve fed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you’ve fed him for a lifetime.” ? We have! We are true believers of this quote which is why we have chosen Kiva to provide women with the tools and information to realize their own potential.

Kiva Empowers People

So what exactly is Kiva, and what do they do? Kiva empowers people around the world through microloans. They understand how important financial support is for entrepreneurs, especially those living in developing countries. Through our partnership, we will help to enrich countless lives and communities.

We are very happy to be able to give back to the women in The Philippines by helping them succeed in their entrepreneurial ventures. We encourage you to follow our progress by visiting our team website at http://www.kiva.org/team/sylca_designs where you can loan as well.

Sylca Designs Featured at The Pearl S. Buck House

Some of you might have already heard of us talking about Pearl S. Buck, and how happy we are to have our handcrafted statement jewelry in the gift shop. But for those who have not seen any of our other posts we would like to introduce you to Pearl S. Buck. She was a fantastic writer and an outstanding citizen of the world. Her legacy unites nations, societies, communities and individuals with an appreciation for cultural differences. Her foundation provides opportunities to explore and appreciate other cultures and help build better lives for children around the globe. We are truly happy and blessed to be able to sponsor a child in need and work with this phenomenal organization.

We invite you to browse through their website- and hope you fall in love with this organization as much as we did. And who knows maybe you will also find a child to sponsor.
