List Of Causes Exclusively Bling Supports
Our Mission In Giving Back
I'm very excited to share that we now all have the ability to give back! Now 10% of your order can be selected to go to one of the selected charities below. In the cart page you will get the option to opt out of having the 10% go to one of these charities or select from one of the 15 charities that will be listed in the drop down menu. I have comprised a list of these charities with a brief breakdown of what they are for and why they are near and dear to my heart.
Two of these are particularly close to my heart because of how it hits home with me personally. The Autism International Foundation and the Mental Health Association.
My oldest son has an Autism Spectrum Disorder and thanks to the wonderful support of the Autism community and research that has taken place he is able to function at a very high level. Though he will never be able to live alone, he has taken giant strides to be able to function in society and we are so blessed by his smiling face every day! I hope by donating to this cause that we will be able to help more and more children get the help they so desperately need.
The other cause that is so important to me is the Mental Health Association. My husband suffers from PTSD, Anxiety and Depression. I believe that so many are hiding in the dark with these illnesses and I hope that they can find peace and get the help they need. It is a constant struggle for many dealing with these illnesses. I am more than happy to donate to this cause as they offer many services to help those with the many faces of mental illness.
The other causes we have selected are also near and dear to my heart and I know of so many people who have lived with or struggled with many of these areas, it is so hard to choose. I hope with the charities that we have choosen, that you will find it in your heart to dedicate 10% of your order to one of these amazing causes.
