The Power of Charms Podcast

the power of charms podcast

 Since 2004, Charity Charms have been used as a vehicle for non-profits and organizations of all types to creatively brand, fundraise, and engage with their community. We began this journey as a way to meet the growing demand for socially conscious brands. Being socially conscious has grown into an international movement founded on collaboration, giving, and awareness. Our mission is to empower organizations and their supporters, employees, and customers through symbolic pieces that bring their important work to life. Charms have the power to tell a story, connect people in a meaningful way, and build a legacy of love.

The Power of Charms podcast features Charity Charms founder and CEO, Kay McDonald, in conversation with inspiring leaders sharing stories of their mission, how they have utilized charms in their organization, and other bits of wisdom for navigating a fast-paced, constantly evolving world.
