The past year and a half has had devastating effects on our health, both physically and mentally, as well as our economy and livelihoods. As a result of this, we have felt very strongly about doing a small part in creating opportunity for change and social upliftment.
As a brand, Sadie + Jean has always held women and women empowerment at the forefront of everything that we do. Therefore it was a natural fit deciding to partner with Relate, a 100% not-for-profit social enterprise that raises money for charities while creating jobs by uplifting women in underprivileged communities, giving them the tools to empower themselves and spread joy.
This has been made possible through the creation of the Sadie + Jean x Relate bracelet handcrafted by female artisans, often elderly and vulnerable. Together, we have designed a unique piece to serve as a daily reminder and affirmation that we are all worthy.
“You are worth the quiet moment. You are worth the deeper breath. You are worth the time it takes to slow down, be still, and rest” - MHN
To begin the conversation and create awareness for this cause, we will be gifting a bracelet along with every order made in the first month of going live. Thereafter, we will have the option for all of our customers to purchase a bracelet for themselves or a loved one at checkout.
All proceeds made from these pieces will go to various female focused charities as well as the makers of the bracelets themselves, elderly & vulnerable women in the townships who participate in the Ikamva Labantu senior club programs.
