Believing Girls Can Do Anything

At Silpada, we’re always working to come up with ways to support and empower women. From keeping them heart-healthy (WomenHeart) to preserving the world they live in (One Tree Planted), we’ve tried to leave no rock unturned when it comes to our mission for change

As we continue to explore ways to help our communities, a thought occurred—women didn’t start as women. We were all little girls once. Curious, courageous, colorful little girls. Little girls that have to face personal and societal challenges and barriers. Little girls that, we believe, can learn and grow up intelligent, strong, and bold in spite of it all—with some support and guidance. 

With this new commitment at the forefront of our minds, we started looking for organizations where we could be a supporter for girls in our communities. Coincidentally (and fortuitously!), our Director of Marketplaces and Merchandising, Laura Parker, has an 11-year-old daughter. She’s part of an excellent group called Girls Inc. They teach girls of all ages how to value themselves, take risks, and discover and develop natural strengths and skills. 

After doing our research and talking to this 150+ year organization, we learned that its mission is dedicated to the development of the whole girl—from health and education to important life skills. We love that through long-lasting mentorships, a pro-girl environment, and evidence-based programming, girls are learning how to overcome hurdles to grow up educated and independent. (Empowering women is our core value, after all!)

To support this fantastic cause, we’re dedicated to donating 40% of profits from select styles to Girls Inc. throughout June. The start of summer is a pivotal time of year for young girls; graduations, camps, and other summer activities will be in full swing. We hope this donation will go a long way in supporting these bright stars during this time. 

Want a sneak peek at the styles you can shop to support? This collection has something for girls and women alike from beautiful two-tone pieces and dazzling cubic zirconia jewelry to fun and lighthearted styles featuring a playful star (a symbol of the heights girls can reach). 

You can start shopping for these beautiful pieces on 6/1/21. 

In addition to the donation mentioned above, we will be celebrating Best Friends Day on June 8th with a 10% sitewide donation of our profits. It’s the perfect day to get something for you and your BFF, all while supporting a worthy cause! We recommend the Caption This Pendant and the Words Of The Heart Necklace, both styles you can personalize with your names, a special date, or a custom message. You can share your looks and styles with us on social media. Just tag #silpadadesigns for a chance to be featured in a future email.

Whether you shop to support or just celebrate females, we hope you use this as a reminder that we can all have a hand in shaping the future of the girls in our communities. Because the girls we lift up today become the empowered women of tomorrow.
