2015 was an amazing year for us here at Larissa Loden Jewelry. We got to participate in many great music festivals, including Shaky Knees, Sasquatch and the Newport Folk Festival. Our list of Larissa Loden jewelry retailers continues to grow and spread out, which helps us share the LLJ gear love all around the US and Internationally. We also added to our great LLJ family. Most important though, we got to meet so many of our great Larissa Loden Jewelry fan's and help them complete that kick-ass outfit or give that one of a kind gift. You help make this crazy dream possible and we are beyond grateful.
We always knew that when it was possible we wanted to give back, and give back to the community that has given so much to us. That is why in 2016 we are going to be giving back 5% of our net profits. 2.5% will be going to Cookie Cart, an amazing organization out of North Minneapolis. The goal of Cookie Cart is to give youth in undeserved communities their first job and teach them many skills along the way. As a former educator at inner-city schools, I know how important it is to give youth opportunities like these.
The other 2.5% percent will be up to you. Every month we will have an open call for suggestions and each month we will pick a different charity/non-profit chosen by you. You chose us, so help us chose someone else. Already know an organization you would like to suggest? Fill out this form. At the end of each month we will choose one organization.
