In response to the worldwide health crisis that is affecting all of our lives right now, I have a special burden for the most vulnerable populations—the elderly and the chronically ill—many of whom are struggling during this time to maintain their health.
I am leading an effort through Pendants for a Cause to raise money to help support high-risk patients at nonprofit California and Texas hospitals. This means that 100% of the proceeds raised through the sale of items purchased through Pendants for a Cause’s shop will be redirected during this time toward preparing essential care packages for patients in need.
While we are no doubt all struggling to get through this time, I ask that you—if you live in the U.S.*—to consider supporting this cause if you have the burden or the means to.
Thank you for making a difference.

*Pendants for a Cause is limited to shipping within the U.S. at this time.
Considering what to give this holiday season? This year, why not give the gift that truly gives back? Our elegant sea glass jewelry are handcrafted and one-of-a-kind…but the most meaningful part is that 100% of the proceeds go to help sick children obtain life-saving heart surgeries.
Here is a lovely post by Elaine DeBock about Pendants for a Cause. She has a wonderful blog (“Following Augustine“) that I am grateful to have come upon and that I hope you will check out as well. Thank you, Elaine, for your kind support! 💙
Pendants for a Cause started a little over a week ago from nothing more than a small piece of sea glass and a hope to help another. When news had hit of the devastating impact of Hurricane Dorian on the communities in the Bahamas–of the lack of healthcare facilities and the need for resources and medical aid–my first thought was not to create necklaces. But despite my formal training as a physician, I felt that there was little that I could do to help all those I wanted to help.
So what else did I have that could possibly make a difference?
Happy Saturday! If you haven’t yet, please check out the PendantsForACause necklaces to see if any of my sea glass creations appeals to you.
Remember, every time you purchase a pendant, you are supporting two great causes. For more information on the PendantsForACause effort, please visit yesterday’s post.
