I've been promoting the #CommunityOverCompetition movement lately + decided to make lifting up other makers + creators my focus over the next year. Supporting small business is something I firmly believe in + my hope is that I will be able to encourage others to do the same!
Local Philadelphia creative Haley Vera creates unique, stunning, "Wow, Where did you get that?!?" jewelry. Trust me on this, I was asked the first time I wore my necklace! I found Haley on Instagram (@HabitualThreads) a few weeks ago + after I read her company mission + vision I just had to have piece of her work for myself:
"Moved by Love, Our Vision is to support the basic needs of others by connecting customers to causes they care about. Our hope is to catalyze awareness, action, and generosity that extends beyond a one time purchase.
Taking what we’ve been given, and offering it to be multiplied, Our Mission is to create inspiring jewelry that benefits philanthropic partners who provide food, water, shelter, family, and mental health care. "
For every sale, Haley then turns around and gives back to the community! Bonus: you get to choose where your money goes + I decided to send the $5 donation to The National Alliance on Mental Illness. A girl boss that gives back? yes please!
I truly love what Haley is doing + how she is giving back, we've both been in business the same amount of time, + I couldn't pass on the opportunity to share Habitual Threads with you!
