PHOENIX – Origami Owl, a custom jewelry company has dedicated this weekend to support the unsung heroes of our country. Their 72-hour sale, beginning Friday, June 24th, and going through Monday, June 27th, will raise money to support Helping Hands for Freedom’s Life Needs program. On their Facebook Live post, co-founders Bella and Chrissy Weems, said they chose this weekend for the sale because the fourth of July is coming up shortly. “We want to be able to give to this organization on the special day when we remember the men and women who serve this country.”
Helping Hands for Freedom is a nonprofit that aids families dealing with death, deployment and loss. The Life Needs program is made possible by fundraisers such as the Help Our Heroes fundraiser. The charity is currently engaged in their largest fundraiser to date, the Route for the Brave, which is a 3,091 mile walk across America to raise funds for the construction of a House of Healing and PTSD center for Gold Star families.
Origami Owl’s goal is to sell 50,000 lockets in 72 hours on their site, www.OrigamiOwl.com/HelpOurHeroes because, according to Chrissy, “We care about the men and women serving our country. We care about these families. So many of them have come back. They suffer from PTSD. We really believe that together, we can be a force for good.”
This weekend, $1 from every "Help Our Heroes" Look sold will benefit military families in need. The 5 new locket Looks include charms and chains with themes of family, faith, moms, and patriotism. These lockets are $19 each and Origami Owl is offering FREE standard shipping to every order over $100, and co-founder, Chrissy Weems, sweetened the deal by promising that 25 random orders will find a new twist watch with a navy and white striped wrap thrown in for FREE!
This is the second time in recent months that Origami Owl has joined forces with Helping Hands for Freedom to help military families. Chrissy Weems recently attended a Helping Hands for Freedom event, where her company provided 50 Inscriptions Tags that are currently being distributed at various Microsoft stores along the Route for the Brave to veterans that work in the tech giant’s stores.
Helping Hands for Freedom CEO Darin Fishburn said, “Our partnership with Origami Owl has already changed lives in just a few months. We have been honoring our veterans with Origami Owl Inscriptions Tags that say, “Honor and Courage”. We have gotten many calls from veterans telling us that we saved their lives and made them look at things differently.”
The Origami Owl call to action is heartfelt. “Let’s be a force for good. Let’s do this. Let’s come together this weekend and make a difference in the lives of our heroes’ families.”
