Giving back for Giving Tuesday and Beyond

At Luna & Stella, we make fine jewelry that celebrates our closest connections, the relationships between parents and grandparents, sons and daughters, aunts and uncles, sister and brothers, partners and the friends that are our family.  I believe those relationships are the greatest treasures we have.

But recently I have been thinking more about the extension of these relationships -- community.  Specifically, I have thinking about what the role of businesses in civil discourse is and should be, and what my role as a small business owner should be in being a part of the conversation.

I am the first to admit I don't have all the answers. But I think we owe it to our children and communities to start somewhere.

The place we are starting is with Facing History and Ourselves.  For over 40 years, Facing History has been training educators to teach empathy, tolerance, and civic responsibility through the lens of history.  

I cannot think of any work more important right now.   

On giving Tuesday, November 29, Luna & Stella will give 20% of all sales on our website to Facing History.  Throughout the season, customers can enter code FACINGHISTORY and we will make a donation of 20% of their purchase.

For more about Facing History, check out their website, and my interview with my friend and Facing History Los Angeles Director Liz Vogel.
