It All Started with Jewelry
With every purchase, 5% goes towards transitioning women out of poverty and homelessness.
Alora has given more than $5000+ to programs that they have a partnership with: Mustard Seed, Dean Louise School Program (Lifeskills for Teenage Mothers) and the Home Front Prevention of Domestic Violence Program. Each partnership is more than just blind donations, Alora connects with each organization to learn more about their work, what they need help with and how the funds will help. Each partnership includes an event funded and organized by Alora to draw attention to the organization, and to the struggles of the strong, inspirational women they help.
Your purchase changes the lives of women in Calgary who have experienced poverty, abuse or disadvantaged situations.
