Chicago-based jewelry and handbag designer Christopher Augmon and StyleChicago.com favorite has started a giving initiative called “Christopher Augmon Gives Back”. While this is the season to be especially thankful, we know that every season is a good time to show gratitude for the blessings we enjoy.
“I have a line called ’18k’ because Bloomingdales NY/Chicago asked me to expand my fine jewelry line for a trunk show…and I wanted to create something that really inspired me. I have volunteered with youth in under-served communities for more than 25 years, so I designed a line of 18 karat gold jewelry that was inspired by those under 18 years old who live in those communities. The ’18k Collection’ donates part of its sales profits to at-risk youth organizations in Chicago.” – Christopher AugmonBuy the 18K Collection
Every year, Christopher is asked by several nonprofits to give or donate his designs to their causes – in order to raise money and awareness to their mission. While it is hard to give to every charity, it is an honor to be able to donate, so Augmon makes it a point to give back.Tell Chris how you give back
This season, Christopher Augmon Gives Back will donate $500 of his designs to one charity before the end of the year. If you have a charity, foundation, nonprofit or work with or volunteer for a nonprofit organization, you can tell Christopher how you give back.
Please visit his website or email VIP@augmon.com where you can fill out how you and/or your charity gives back. Christopher will read them all and choose one charity to award $500 of his designs for your charity to raise capital.
