Stella & Dot, a global fashion accessories brand and rapidly growing social selling company, has partnered with buildOn to donate 10,000 gifts to girls in need this holiday season. In order to reach this goal, Stella & Dot is launching the “Spread the Love: Buy One, Gift One” program that provides a gift from their girls’ line to underprivileged youth with the purchase of select jewelry styles. Gifts will be distributed to girls around the world through buildOn’s extensive volunteer network.
Stella & Dot previously has donated to buildOn through the sale of their 2011 Mother’s Day bracelets. A group of stylists from Stella & Dot traveled to Nicaragua to help construct a buildOn school later in the year.
“At Stella & Dot, we believe the holidays are about expressing your gratitude and spreading joy by giving to others. We are thrilled to partner with buildOn and our Independent Stylists to donate over 10,000 gifts to girls that might not otherwise be getting one this holiday” said Jessica Herrin, Stella & Dot CEO and Founder.
“buildOn is so excited to receive this generous donation from Stella & Dot this holiday season,” said Abby Hurst, buildOn’s Vice President of U.S. Programs. “Urban teens in buildOn programs volunteer with the same young children week after week through activities like coaching at local recreation centers, or tutoring in neighborhood homeless shelters. Stella and Dot is giving buildOn students the opportunity to celebrate these young children by giving them a beautiful gift.”
