It has always been a dream of mine to run a business that makes women feel great, and also help others that need it most. I wasn't looking to announce this until May, but given the current climate I had to kick this into overdrive to launch sooner because now is a very crucial time and people need our help now more than ever.THE CHLOE + LOIS: GLITTER + GIVEBACK program. A generous portion of sales of the pieces in his collection will help us support various organizations and non-profit causes that are committed to helping women. Since support of other women is one of the core values at Chloe + Lois, I could not be any more proud to announce this new program, it makes my heart full thinking of the positive impact that we are going to be able to collectively have on other women's lives.

Our first collaboration with a 501c3 Nonprofit, "Unshattered" is now live.
Unshattered is a nonprofit that employs women in recovery from addiction who have overcome trauma, addiction, trafficking, homelessness and incarceration. Their mission is to give community, economic stability, and purpose by providing job skills training and employment wrapped around a personal and professional development curriculum. I have been fortunate enough to spend time at their offices and meet all of the women and its so inspiring. Unshattered is literally changing women's lives.
I sat down with Founder and CEO Kelly Lyndgaard a few months back to design the beautiful necklace you'll see at the bottom of this e-mail. We wanted a design that embodied the dainty style of Chloe + Lois and the Unshattered colors. The result is a group of beautiful, prong set cubic zirconias and glowing opals delicately lined up to form a bar. The perfect amount of glitter and glow and uplifting colors to take us into spring.
$25 of every purchase made will go directly to Unshattered and you will be supporting the incredible mission that these women are on to protect the overall health of our community and to help stifle the spread of this terrible virus.
This is urgent.
They have shifted their operations from making handbags from up-cycled materials to producing surgical masks for hospitals and health care professionals to help fill the shortage that we are experiencing in NY state. For more information, click here.
We need to what we can to make sure that we are supporting this so the ball keeps moving.
Stay happy and healthy, and thank you so much for your support.
