This spring, we hope to see sunflowers everywhere, and that includes sunflower earrings. Especially when they’re giving back to Ukraine like the ones we’ve just found.
Indie jewelry designer, mom and art director Farah Brigante of Naaz Design Co has created a handmade sunflower collection of earrings, with 100% of the profits going to to World Central Kitchen’s efforts at the border of Poland and Ukraine.
(If you recognize her work, we had included her in our list of favorite holiday gifts for adults under $15 last year.)
We love supporting World Central Kitchen which has been feeding people in crisis for a dozen years in areas like Puerto Rico, Beirut, California, Puerto Rico…and now in Poland at the Ukrainian border. And of course we love supporting independent artists like Farah who are putting their time and talents towards giving back.
Available in four different color combinations, these detailed post earrings are a meaningful symbol of support — the towering yellow flower has long been considered the national flower of Ukraine, and is the perfect embodiment of the brighter days we hope will soon come to the country that’s been under attack for two straight weeks now.
We know that a pair of earrings alone won’t save Ukraine, but along with donations to aid organizations, calls to demand further sanctions against Russia, and purchases on Etsy or AirBNB to get dollars into the hands of the Ukrainian people, our efforts can combine into something much more impactful than helplessly scrolling social media news reports.Though, we’re doing that too.
Visit Farah Brigante’s Etsy shop Naaz Design Co, which will be donating all the proceeds from sales in her sunflower jewelry collection to World Central Kitchen’s efforts at the border of Poland and Ukraine. Custom color combinations can be ordered as well!
