Giving back is always in style!
We are so excited to announce the “The LJ Charities” initiative. Our mission is “Women Helping Women” and we aim to empower and celebrate women by donating 2% of our total sales to a specific charity each quarter. We will be supporting both local and national organizations that focus on current event issues challenging women today.
Q1 Featured Cause
We are thrilled this quarter to support a charity that is local to the Tampa area, and for such a good cause. The Alpha House of Tampa offers homeless pregnant women and mothers with young children safe housing and the tools they need to become self-sufficient and effective responsible parents; including emergency shelter and a plan to secure permanent housing, community resources, access counseling, parenting support, and healthy child development programs, and help to pursue education and employment opportunities.

Q2 FEATURED CAUSE
One Love was created by the family of Yeardley Love. She was a senior in college and was killed by her ex-boyfriend. Her death was avoidable if anyone in her life had truly understood the unhealthy and increasingly dangerous relationship behaviors they were seeing. One Love has 18,000 volunteers across the country that educate and start the conversation about unhealthy/abusive vs. healthy relationships.

Q3 FEATURED CAUSE
Movemeant’s mission is to empower girls and women by providing them with resources, opportunities and experiences to use physical movement as a tool to build confidence and self-worth. They use impact programs (a body-positive middle school curriculum and a #sheplayswewin scholarship program) to help adolescent girls embody confidence and develop healthy habits so they can be successful in their future and fierce in their determination.

Q4 FEATURED CAUSE
RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network) is the nation's largest anti-sexual violence organization. RAINN created and operates the National Sexual Assault Hotline (800.656.HOPE, online.rainn.org y rainn.org/es) in partnership with more than 1,000 local sexual assault service providers across the country and operates the DoD Safe Helpline for the Department of Defense.
