At Giving Through Jewelry, 10% of all sales are donated to a charity of the buyers choice. We realize that there are a lot of charities to choose from so we would like to highlight some of our favorites. February’s featured charity is Wind Youth Services.  Check out our FACEBOOK page at the beginning of each month to see how much was donated.
