At our core, we believe that we are given to give. That's why our "Goods for Good" initiative was started!
...And why we updated our Goods for Good initiative earlier this year — Now, 1% of every purchase made through our website is donated!
Give Back When You Shop MIMOSA Handcrafted
Instead of only certain pieces donating to certain organizations, you can donate 1% of your purchase to one of the organizations listed below.
You deserve jewelry that connects you to what matters most AND that allows you to give back — all at the same time. So, during checkout, simply select the organization you'd like to donate to. There are no additional fees to donate, all you have to do is shop! We'll do the rest. :)
In total, we currently have 10 different organizations you can give back to when you shop MIMOSA. Find out more about each of them below!
How to choose an organization
When you visit the "Shopping Cart" page, find the "Goods for Good" section and scroll through the drop-down menu to select your preferred organization. Then, finish placing your order, and we'll donate a portion of your order to them.
DONATE 1% OF YOUR ORDER TO ONE OF THESE ORGANIZATIONS
Mission: "Be Brave is a campaign to Encourage Inspire and Empower women who struggle with mental health challenges."
And the Be Brave vision is to "spread awareness about Anxiety, Depression, and other mental health disorders."
BREADA's mission is to "build a healthy and strong local food system; to increase sustainability of independent local farmers, fishers and food producers; and to foster stewardship of land and community through public markets."
More from MIMOSA: Now, there are even more ways to support BREADA with your purchase. Instead of a portion of proceeds donated exclusively from Harvest Collection purchases, you can donate 1% of your purchase of any MIMOSA pieces to their organization.
DONATE TO CIRCLES + SCISSORS HANDWASHING
"Circles + Scissors Handwashing is the most fun and effective method to teach kiddos the RIGHT WAY to wash hands. The method is in the name! Teach them Circles + Scissors and they'll have the tools they need for clean hands every time."
Our Bubbles Cuff was also made in honor of our friend Jenny Iverstine (queen of bubbles) and author of Circles + Scissors, Handwashing Made Fun For Kiddos.
She has a mission to teach 1 million kids how to properly wash their hands!
Donations will help pay for things like free classes for students and teachers, handouts, and other teaching tools.

"Front Yard Bikes is a community bike shop that focuses on teaching participants of all ages how to fix and maintain bikes. We teach and develop skills in mathematics, physics and mechanics, while promoting inclusivity, mentorship, recreation and academic achievement.
"We offer youth in the community a safe, free after-school program. They are taught responsibility and become peer leaders as they are faced with ethical and moral questions in their day-to-day lives.
"The heart of our program is motivated by compassion for kids from low-income families that are willing to work for what they get. We hope to impact the youth of Baton Rouge, one bike at a time, one heart at a time, because the youth of today are the leaders of tomorrow."
More from MIMOSA: In 2020, your purchases of the Hug Ring helped fund 100 summer bike kits for Front Yard Bikes to give to kids who needed them the most. Read more about how else you helped give back through your purchases of the Hug Ring in 2020. Read the "Wearable Hugs" blog.
