We are thrilled to announce that a percentage of all sales from our 10K gold rings will be donated to the Pacific Immigrant Resources Society. PIRS is a non-profit, community-based organization that provides empowerment through language, culture, and support programs for immigrant women and their children in Vancouver. 

This alignment feels very close to my heart because my mother, Mercedes, landed in Vancouver as an immigrant from El Salvador in the late 1970’s. She was attending university with the intention of becoming an anaesthesiologist, but the campus closed as a civil war loomed ahead. Her stories of integrating into Canadian culture, and studying to be a nurse with an English-Spanish dictionary by her side, will forever inspire me. 

Canada is better because my mom is here. With your help, we can support a program that celebrates and values the diverse contributions of immigrants and refugees, helping them feel safe and welcomed as they begin a new chapter in their lives.
