Spreading Rainbows & Making Sure No Kid Goes Hungry
It’s amazing to see people within their community coming together to help others. Today we want to share a special young girl and her do it yourself (DIY) project with you. Stella and her mom came to Charity Charms with a beautiful vision for custom charity bracelets and we couldn’t wait to help them bring it to life.
Stella’s Vision & Spreading Rainbows
Stella is 9 years old and on a mission to help stop kids from going hungry. She knew she had to do something when she witnessed kids like her standing in line to get a hot meal. Finding out that this may be the only meal those kids get for days had a huge impact on Stella. So, she started Spreading Rainbows. Spreading Rainbows is a way for Stella to make a difference, spread smiles, and help children who are food insecure. She believes, above all, no child should have to feel hungry.
Spreading Rainbows started as a food drive concept, but grew into a fundraising vehicle through the sale of custom charity bracelets made by Stella. 40% of all net proceeds from her website help give meals to kids in need through No Kid Hungry. Just $1 means 10 meals for a hungry child, and Stella has donated 7,000 meals to date through funds raised from her jewelry line. Stella herself has designed a line of beautiful jewelry ranging from bracelets to anklets and even necklaces. Each design is made of great Earth-conscious materials like stones, beads, and shells. She offers a message card with each piece to tell her story and mission while making sure all package is eco-friendly.
Creating Stella’s Custom Charity Bracelets
Her jewelry line is branded with Stella’s special Branding Bead crafted with love. One side features her signature with hearts and the other side her cause: No More Hunger. To make Stella’s dreams come true, we created a DIY kit filled with symbol charms, Caring Cords, and GivingBands along with her Branding Beads. As a result, Stella was able to build the jewelry line of her dreams using her own designs, ingenuity, and show off her personality all while doing good.
Stella not only sells her charm bracelets but uses them as meaningful giveaways. Her aunt is a nurse and she gave 11 angel wing charm bracelets to all the hospital workers to let them know they are admired.
We are inspired by Stella and love seeing what she is doing with her custom charity bracelets. This concept is what Charity Charms is all about. Showing gratitude, seeing a need, rising to the occasion, and helping in any way possible is at the very heart of what we do. During these times, it’s amazing what we can do for each other and how much one simple thing can mean to someone else. Seeing Stella give thanks to her community while raising important funds to make sure children don’t go hungry is so special we couldn’t help but want to share it with you.
