Joya is about living each day to the fullest, which means appreciating what we can do, not what we can’t do. What we believe we can all do is make a difference, even just a small difference every single day.
Each time you make a purchase or renew your subscription we give back a portion of our profits to women’s causes. It is simple, and our promise to our communities.
Why do we focus on women’s causes? We do it, because we want it to be personal. We all have a mother, a sister, a best friend who has needed a helping hand, and our partners like The Women’s Safe House, in our home base of St. Louis, were there for the women in our lives when they needed it most.
For 37 years, The Women’s Safe House provides safe shelter and support to battered women and their dependents as well as helps them make empowered choices about their future. They are open every day of the year, and serve 650 women and children annually.
Unfortunately, the faces of domestic violence may be more familiar than you think. Did you know, 1 out of 4 women have been or will be abused by an intimate partner at some point in their lives?(via The Women’s Safe House). For every dollar that we give, over 84 cents will go directly to programs and services for abused women and their dependent children. We also love empowerment program that the Safe House provides. With financial dependence as one of the main reasons women remain in such violent environments, they offer all their programs and services free of charge.
We love what we do, creating beautiful pieces for you. But we are motivated by impacting lives and making them better and this is just one of many partners to come.
Thanks for joining us on this journey to make a difference, and spreading the Joya.
