1 of 49- Jean C. Nives Rodriguez, age 27


Today, in honor of Jean C. Nives Rodriguez, a couple was treated to lunch.

Jean's loved ones describe him as loving and kind. He worked hard as a manager for a local store and had just purchased a new home. Jean was known to be like a big teddy bear. His friends and family say they are devastated by their loss.

49 Random Acts of Kindness



It is with a mixture of sorrow and hope that we would like to announce our next project, 49 Random Acts of Kindness in honor of the 49 lives lost on June 12th, 2016 at Pulse nightclub in Orlando, FL. While nothing can undo the unimaginable tragedy of 49 lives taken from this earth because of misguided hatred, we hope that we can come to learn more about who each of these people were and spread love in their honor.

We will be posting blogs to highlight the information we can discover about each person, and to share with you the way we have chosen to pay respect to those individuals. Please continue to follow this blog in the coming days to share this experience with us.

To the 49, we will cherish your memory and share you with the world. Please, if you would, take a moment to read the list of names as posted by the City of Orlando website.

Operation Future Elf



While spending a couple of days at Boston Children's Hospital,  I was faced with a jarring reminder that children who are long term patients must miss out on several joys and privileges of childhood.  This holiday, we realize that simple traditions and holidays become out of reach for thousands f children each year, and we'd like to do our best to remedy that. 









We have come with an idea to donate hand crafted (or store bought) Elf hats . 






If you would like to participate in Operation Future Elf, please email cathy@cathyscreationsjewelry.com for shipping address.

Delivery before December 25th is necessary, so please arrange shipping accordingly.

25 Days of Giving - Day 25

DAY 25

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Organizations that keep people actively involved in donating, sharing,
helping, and caring are always near and dear to our hearts.
 
We were so happy to use One Simple Wish this holiday season
to find connections with children in difficult circumstances
who were asking for special gifts.
 
Without websites like One Simple Wish, we would be lost when
it came to donating and helping others. It is so crucial that these websites
get the support and recognition that they deserve for the hard work and effort
it takes to run the entire project behind the scenes for people like you and me
and especially for the children they help.
 
This is why, for our final day of giving, we have chosen to support
this website financially and encourage them to keep up the spirit of giving.
