Equality + Community + Love
That is the theme of our June Partnerships
Our One Love bracelets represent equality for all people regardless of race, ethnicity, or gender. Appetite For Change encompasses these same values, which is why we decided to partner with them and donate 50% of the proceeds from each bracelet to help nourish and rebuild North Minneapolis.
Appetite For Change offers teens and adults the space and resources to become agents of change in North Minneapolis.
"We believe food is the key ingredient to nourishing wellbeing. Systemic barriers make accessing fresh food in North Minneapolis a challenge for many. Through youth and workforce development programs, social enterprises, and policy initiatives, we build community capacity to engage with the food system in a fresh and sustainable way."
Part of AFC's mission is to expand economic growth, racial equality, and opportunities for inner-city youth and young adults in North Minneapolis.
The global pandemic and recent Minneapolis uprising have left many of our neighbors jobless, homeless, and foodless. Appetite For Change is actively collaborating with community partners to distribute nourishing meals to families in need in North Minneapolis, preparing over 50,000 meals since April.
Be a part of promoting new growth in North Minneapolis. Together, we can do more.
Rebuilding After Devastating Loss
We have partnered with Lake Street Council to help with the mission to Rebuild Lake Street. The riots, looting, and arson proceeding the tragic and unjust death of George Floyd left small businesses and one of Minneapolis's most iconic streets in complete and utter devastation. The Lake Street Council (501c3) has started a fund to help rebuild Lake Street, starting with direct support to small businesses and nonprofits to help them rebuild their storefronts, reopen their businesses and serve their neighborhoods. They believe in and support the fight for justice while rebuilding the community. Shop for this cause by purchasing our Lake Street bracelet set. 50% of the proceeds will benefit rebuilding Lake Street!
GOLDFINE JEWELRY recognizes the importance of giving back to the community and helping those who do not have the means to help themselves.
