This movement was organized to help individuals that are in crisis situations in the United States throughout the year. Every single dollar raised goes towards that mission and directly to someone in need. Ella Joli uses a percentage of every sale for this cause, this is our 9th year donating to people in crisis. Many of our customers and friends have requested to help, with what started as our holiday efforts, so we have now formed #operationloveoneanother to help others year around. You're already donating to this cause when you purchase from us but you are now able to purchase items specifically for the cause.
There is currenlty one necklace for women/girls, one for men/boys and t-shirts are in the works, specifically for Operation Love One Another. All sale proceeds from these OLOA items will go towards the cause. After all, who couldn't use reminders to be kind and show love for one another! We have also created a website that will soon display some of these efforts.
The recipients never know where the gifting is from, they just know someone cares, the relief gives them hope, and that in itself is a powerful thing. During the holidays, we provide meals & necessity gift cards to families as well as Christmas gifts for children who wouldn't otherwise have any. A ministry may contact us with a single, working mother who is short on rent and facing eviction, which will put them on the streets. Natural disasters cause immediate needs for displaced families. Another organized effort may need holiday gifts for families in safe houses, or hats for the homeless. Those are just a few examples, we give where the need is great. Sometimes people just need help and have nowhere to turn. These efforts are not tax deductible. These efforts are not about us.
You're truly making a difference in the lives of people that are experiencing desperate, difficult times, and we thank you! You may make a monetary donation to this cause by contacting us or on our Operation Love One Another website after January 2019. If you're purchasing any product from us, 10% of that is given back to those in need. If you're unable to give, prayers for others less fortunate are just as powerful.
