Buy a Thumbprint Necklace & Support a Children's Shelter in Nepal

In case you have not yet noticed, we have started a new feature in our sidebar called PIP's Picks. It is in PIP's Picks we  try to highlight a deal each day that tickles our fancy. It may be something small like a darling host{ess} gift or something as fabulous as the latest and greatest Gucci find. Today's pick, a simple thumbprint necklace, although only available for a limited time or until supplies sell out, is both fabulous and meaningful. And thus it is deserving of a devoted post.

One of our new favorite merchants, Jane.com, has partnered with the Elizabeth Smart Foundation to help survivors at Raksha (a safe haven for children and young adults rescued from predatory crimes) to heal, move on, and thrive. As part of the collaboration, Jane is selling a fabulous #StrongLikeYou Raksha Necklace. Each necklace is stamped with the thumbprint of a child from Raksha, so you can hold your child's story close to your heart. Additionally, you will, receive an insert telling you a little more about your child. Plus, and here is the best part, 100% of all proceeds from the sale of the thumbprint necklace go directly to Raksha children’s shelter as part of Jane's #StrongLikeYou initiative.

Words of Advice for Graduates & The Starfish Poem

Update >> Since graduation season is once again upon us, we have decided to republish this post since it seems as relevant seven years later as the day we wrote it.

And, in my ever so humble opinion, he truly is heeding his commencement speaker's advice and both doing something that matters & helping to save the world. And while I am at it, I want to congratulate two of my nieces who are graduating this spring, Katie and Sami. Two more graduates who I am certain will make their mark in the world!

My son, along with his peers from across the country, graduated from college this year.

Do something that matters.”

and then Chu added

Help save the world.
