KEEP COLLECTIVE against Bullying

A little over a year ago my boss, who has a child with a rare disease called hypophosphatasia (HPP), partnered with one of a new favorite jewelry lines she exposed me to called Stella & Dot. For each purchase on a set day, a percentage of the proceeds went to this cause to help raise funds for research and to build much-needed awareness for this disease.

I have since learned of another new cause and great jewelry line that I wanted to share with you.

My stylist from Stella & Dot, Kristy McKillop, who has been super and wonderful, and available if you would like her support, told me of another great effort she has gotten involved with called KEEP COLLECTIVE, and it’s about being the best we can be, strive for our dreams and want for more. 

The women who brought Stella & Dot have now married their love of jewelry and an important cause of bullying education through their “Kind Campaign” to“help bring awareness to and stop girl against girl bullying and remind us all to be kind…[and] all proceeds from KEEP-Collective's Kind Collection will be donated to the Kind Campaign.  

As parents, this cause is near and dear to our hearts for all our children. Bullying is unacceptable and more education and awareness is needed to help prevent this hate that hurts our kids…and be aware if our children are involved in any way.

The concept of KEEP COLLECTIVES is really neat in that they are designed for women, and moms like us, to live our best lives and dream big. They have one-of-a-kind, interchangeable Keepers (aka bracelets, necklaces, chains, etc.) and Keys (aka charms, watch faces, lockets, birthstones, etc.) and each item “is a wearable touchstone, an instant reminder of the big things, the small things, and all the things that matter.”

What is really nice about these keepsakes is that there are no two alike, unless of course you buy two that are identical. You can personalize them all you want either with your personal dreams and wishes, and what matters most to you.

I just made my first purchase, and can’t wait for it to arrive. I included an initial for my daughter, a faith charm as you can never have enough, two charms that signify what I love and what also matters to me personally, and a "kind" charm to support the bullying cause.

I look forward to adding to my collection and making a bracelet for my daughter in the future with her dreams, hopes and wishes as we discuss bullying and the importance of understanding it, speaking up if it happens, and to be mindful never to do it to others.

Hop on the KEEP COLLECTIVE bandwagon to be reminded to live your life fully, and with passion, and also to help spread the word about bullying and how we can help to prevent it.
